I am looking forward to visiting again in late Fall, the cooler weather will make it much easier to see more of the gardens and sculptures. While there may not be as many flowers or visitors, the sculpture takes center stage. FYI I have seen very warm days right through november so unless it is pouring rain you will have a lovely time

Late October is a wonderful time to tour Brookgreen, the hot summer weather is over and the temperature should be very nice.....almost like God turned on the air conditioning. Flowers will still be blooming and with all the walking through the gardens will be very pleasant. Don't forget to tour the zoo with local animals including a male alligator around 13 ft. who has been a resident for quite awhile....there are also birds of prey that have been injured and can no longer take care of themselves....bald eagles, owls and hawks....don't forget to plan on having lunch there, outstanding "she crab" soup.

Late fall should be ideal, far fewer tourists, and temperatures should be very comfortable. There may be some color appearing in the hardwoods (except for the live oaks which retain their green foliage year round). Chrysanthemums and fall flowers may still be in bloom, but there will not be an abundance of them. The statues in the natural environment and the wonderful gardens will still make this a most worthwhile experience. Be prepared to take some wonderful photos.

Legos will be gone but the weather in October is beautiful. There are places to eat on the property or you can pack a lunch. Walking in the fall wonderful. There is still all the exhibits to see year round

I am not sure. The Legos will be gone, but the weather should be cooler, which will make it much more enjoyable to tour the gardens and zoo area.

I can't really give you an exact answer being that I've never been there in the fall, but my guess would be that the gardens would be absolutely beautiful!! if you have the opportunity to go I suggest going.
