Brookgreen Gardens

Have you ever heard of Brookgreen Gardens near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina? It is a magnificent botanical garden and history & wildlife preserve that is a combination of art, history, and nature!

Choose from food trucks, small bites from The Old Kitchen, sit-down dining at Harvest Restaurant (reservations strongly recommended!), or a buffet from Inlet Affairs!
