The flowers, blooms, and plants at Lewis Ginter are stunning. There is something to see year-round. We especially liked going at Christmas when they decorate the gardens with thousands and thousands of lights. The cafe is a lovely place to eat. There are many special days with things going on throughout the year. There is also a children's garden just for them. It is a lovely place to visit.

I take preschooler here. They love smelling the flowers and pretending in the children's garden. Young children will enjoy feeding the Koi as well. At Christmas the lights are beautiful throughout the park. There are numerous trains on display and are a big hit with children of all ages. The gardens have a lovely gift shop, cafe, and restaurant. Visit them online to learn about adult and children educational programs available.
