This was absolutely lovely. I am not a green thumb, but I enjoy a beautiful view. Walked around and also did the golf cart tour (free, but tip the driver). Looking forward to going again this Fall to see the changes.

Yes, the ticket price includes the concert. You can bring a blanket or lawn chair. Many people bring in a cart with food and drinks for their family. It's a very pleasant family atmosphere.
