One of the Myrtle Beach area’s most dearly loved attractions, Brookgreen Gardens' combination of art, history, and zoo touches the heart and teaches the mind. Boat rides turn into history lessons and a visit to the butterfly house becomes a lesson in conservation. Explore the Visit section for all our daily activities. Admission is good for seven days.

Boat Rides

Cruise on a 48-foot pontoon boat along historic ricefields now home to alligators, waterfowl, and osprey. Tickets: $8-adults; $4-children in addition to garden admission. More information.
