  • While I was only in Chapel Hill for a short time, I didn't know whether I'd have time to get to the NCBG -- I'm sure glad that I did. It was a hot day, and I decided to concentrate just on the herb...

  • We always visits this place! Well maintained and easy to access all paths and trails. Don’t miss it, & Remember it’s closed Monday.

  • Small garden but very nicely done. Some shady areas, but also very hot in the sunny areas so plan your day accordingly. Small parking spaces, but we found one in the shade so that was nice. Indoor building had AC, gift shop sold seeds for some of the plants and they had a large selection of nice gifts for the gardener in your family. Beautiful place. So many butterflies and loved the history of the cabin!!
  • The North Carolina Botanical Garden was my best self-guided experience and highly recommend it. Their layout is extensive, clever and charming, with winding paths to take you through the various botanical theme areas and gardens. The greenhouse is a joy in their exotic diversity, especially the stunning varieties of orchids. Best of all, the garden connects with an extensive natural area of long trails that provide for exploration and exercise if you have the time. Surprised to encounter snakes, amphibians and all sorts of flying insects. Thoroughly examined the Allen Education Center and is full of knowledge and fun facts! Not to mention Susan Brabeau's stunning paintings displayed in the art exhibit and the Paul Green Cabin does not disappoint either. With all that it has to offer, this alone makes the trip worthwhile.
