Brookgreen Gardens is perhaps 45 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. It was an estate founded by a couple of sculpture lovers who purchased statuary created mostly by American artists. A ticket was good for several days. It took at least two full days to see everything and Grandma and Grandpa were only able to visit one time.
