Get there early
This plantation is built for crowds, but if you get there early you will be able to explore the gardens almost all by yourself. There are 7 different bridges on the property and each one is unique. Try visiting in early spring to see the camellia and azalea gardens in full bloom. Watch out for alligators while walking around.
Take Every Trail!
These gardens were super fun to explore. We got the opportunity to see an alligator and multiple spiders! My personal favorite part was the bamboo forest. You really could spend an entire day exploring the place -- the free snow cones were a nice treat as well!
