In case you don’t get our newsletter (and why not?), we’ve highlighted Brookgreen Gardens as our attraction of the month. This historical landmark boasts the only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of the Carolinas, as well as the largest outdoor collection of American sculpture in the world. Their October calendar is filled with great events, such as the Harvest Home Festival, which is this weekend. The festival include activities like scarecrow building, pumpkin painting and hayrides, as well as live entertainment and square dances. It is free with garden admission, with the exception of the hayride and pumpkin painting (those start at $4).
