Voted one of America's best public gardens, these 50+ acre gardens provide many opportunities for photography and walking in all seasons.

Lewis Ginter has over 2 miles of pathways to follow through more than a dozen themed gardens including a Children's Garden, Rose Garden, Asian Garden and a conservatory. Admission for adults is currently $13. 

Throughout the year there are various events.  In April-June are the "Million Blooms" which includes daffodils, tulips, roses, and more.  From mid-April to mid-October there is a butterfly exhibit housed in the Conservatory.  In December to early January the garden opens up at night with a beautiful Christmas light display. 

Once finished exploring the 2 miles of paths around the gardens, there are two places to eat at the gardens: the Robins Tea House and the Garden Cafe. The gardens are open from 9am to 5pm every day.   

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Gorgeous!

These gardens are amazing! I really enjoyed my visit but even after two hours I didn't think it was enough time.
