  • Gorgeous visit on a gorgeous day! Tremendous variety of gardens and plant materials. Came to see Native Texas Trail plantings and found whole areas representing the Hill Country and south and east Texas. Happy to finally see Texas bluebonnets in person! The specialty exhibits in the conservatories were unique and not to be missed. Don't skip the Fern Grotto! Even the gift shop didn't disappoint. Wish I could have brought home some of the live plants for sale as they were a steal! Last shout out to the very helpful ticket seller who kindly showed me how to get around, made great suggestions, and generally set a fantastic mood for my visit - which did not disappoint!
  • I enjoy this place each time I've gone. I love the walking around ๐Ÿ˜ So much to see ๐Ÿ‘€ and the gift shop has the cutest stuff. Definitely enjoyed the Lightscape event ๐Ÿ˜€ So many different colors of light! Creative to the max with the set up of lights everywhere. Glad the had posters with the QR codes to read on the artist ๐ŸŽจ. Its changed so much since the first time I visited, but great changes. ๐Ÿ‘ Very organized place from ticket ๐ŸŽŸ purchasing booths, restrooms, outside garden areas and it a litter free environment ๐Ÿ˜€. If you haven't been you should go!
