Mo to Su from 09:30 AM to 05:00 PMThis botanical/sculpture garden which includes a zoo is located near Murrell's Inlet about 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. These gardens sit on what were once old rice plantations and they are part of a larger 6000-acre nature preserve run under the guidance of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. The gardens display more than 500 sculptured pieces of work interspersed throughout, whereas the zoo presents wildlife exhibits of South Carolinian animals as well as other creatures like birds of prey. However, the coolest thing about this place is their History Adventure Tour, where guests can take a 48-ft. pontoon boat up murky swamps to see alligators, or a trek by vehicle through the back-country that includes Antebellum plantations, Civil War sites and other interesting attractions.
