Cape Fear Botanical Garden reviews
Beautiful gardens, friendly staff, easy walks thru the property. Only had about 45 minutes, so didn’t get to see everything. Will go again; can’t wait to see the camellia garden in full bloom. more »

A bit pricey for what you get. The grounds are small but pretty. They had a sculpture exhibit going on which was really lovely. The staff mentioned there was a storm recently which they were cleaning up from but locals said the storm wasn't that bad at all. The grounds were a bit unkempt and trails were not always clearly marked.
I attended a wedding reception here last June and this was the perfect spot for it. We had a chance to enjoy some drinks outside. Some people took advantage to wander the grounds; I opted to sip on some drinks in the meanwhile. The ballroom (if that's the right terminology for it) was wonderful - the dance floor was strategically placed in the center, and the tables around it, so everyone could get a view of everything.
