Description: Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historic Landmark with the most significant collection of figurative sculpture in an outdoor setting by American artists in the world and has the only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of the Carolinas. Named by TripAdvisor as One of the Top Ten Public Gardens in the US and one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most dearly loved attractions, Brookgreen Gardens' combination of art, history, and zoo touches the heart and teaches the mind. Boat rides turn into history lessons, a butterfly house becomes a conservation class, and an Enchanted Storybook Forest engages children’s imagination.
