It is great place for the whole family. My family really had a great time exploring the whole place. Beautiful scenery, the butterflies, the birds, and all the beautiful flowers. We are definitely going back soon.

This was not an inexpensive venture for a large family. There wasn't much to see for the high price tag and most of it looked run down and a little tired. Unless you are coming for the Christmas lights, this is a landmark to be...More
