Overall rating: 

A bit pricey, but beautiful gardens!

The gardens are full of huge oak trees, cypress swamps, and trails that meander through dense foliage. There are separate fees for anything but the main gardens, but there is still lots to see with just the general admission.

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.
