Fodor's Review

Lose yourself along magnolia-lined natural trails among dozens of varieties of shade-loving camellias on this 7-acre site, 6 miles east of downtown. The Japanese tea house and a gazebo are lovely places to relax, or you could spend a moment of reflection by the water garden. Your little ones will enjoy exploring the children's cottage. The arboretum is part of a research and educational complex.
