I recommend going on Friday evenings in the Summer to watch the live bands and watch the beautiful sunsets under the old live oaks!

Airlie Gardens is especially beautiful in the Spring and is known for its beautiful setting for weddings, oyster roasts and other events... not to mention Azalea Festival that takes place in April. Airlie Gardens is located 1/4 mile from my property.

Airline gardens was very beautiful. Takes a good 2 hours to walk around and see everything, nice thing to do when the weather is nice. Only walking through the gardens, no biking or anything like that.

It's very beautiful here. It's not super expensive and if you have young kids they can get out all their energy, they may get a little impatient though.

An extraordinarily beautiful gardens by Bradley Creek. It has a variety of unique garden areas and a rich history. First created by Pembroke Jones, about whom the term, "Keeping up with the Jones's" was coined. Every 3rd Friday in the summer months, Airlie Gardens is a local favorite, hosting live music, dancing, and picnicing under a 400 yrs. old live oak.

Wonderful place to wander no matter the season. Easy to walk about or, if you prefer, take the tram around the park.
