Absolutely loved Airlie Gardens. We were on a time crunch and only had an hour because they close at 5pm but we very much enjoyed it. We especially loved trying to locate all the different gnomes along the path. Highly recommended going and allowing yourself...More
While the views of Bradley Bay and its back waters are rather nice, the rest of Airlie Gardens is rather bland. I visited in July, but saw very few flowers in bloom. There are lots of massive live oaks replenish with creepy Spanish moss. Other...More

Very interesting. They have concerts at night in the...More
I visited Airlie Gardens when I first moved to Wilmington last year. It is beautifully maintained property adjacent to the Intercoastal Waterway. Majestic oaks, magnolia and many other native plantings abound. A feature not to be missed is the butterfly house. The staff will explain...More
