My family tradition is to go every year for the Christmas lights. A beautiful display that improves each year. Our local schools and churches also perform during the Christmas season. This year my grandson (age 10) will be playing with his school band.

Give yourself enough time and spend the extra money to take the home tour. It was well worth it. The gardens are beautiful and the house historical. I hope to visit again

My husband and I have visited many gardens, but Bellingrath has been the best. We enjoyed spending the day there, learning the history of the Bellingrath family and their generosity. The home was also beautifully done. This has been a highlight of our vacation.

I had been to this garden about 25 years ago, & remembered it with fondness. So, when I had the opportunity to visit again on our recent road trip, I took advantage. Unfortunately, due to some health issues, I was not able to walk around...More
