What an impressive display of plants, trees, flowers, waterfalls, streams, gazebos, etc. No matter which area you choose to visit from Magnolia to Delta, the garden views are spectacular! You can spend hours here just walking around and exploring.

Beautiful gardens. A must see. Many wonderful restaurants among gardens. You don’t have to stay here to visit the gardens. My Master Gardener husband was on cloud nine!

Well worth taking the time to see this place. You will see 1000s of tropical plants, trees, water falls, streams, ponds & several buildings, all under domes of glass as you wander the many pathways through the gardens. It is so big, you do need...More

We stayed 2 nights and went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry. SO much more to do! Another night or 2 would have been ideal.

The water park is not open, I’m guessing several months or a year until it’s done. There’s a fee for the boat ride. As a guest you get $1 off. It was about $20 for one adult and two kids. It’s only like 10 minutes. It... More
