Bus Trip to Brookgreen Gardens booked for April 10th

Kure Beach Parks & Recreation is offering a bus trip on Tuesday, April 10th to visit Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC. Reservations are now being taken at Kure Beach Town Hall. Plans are that the chartered bus will leave Kure Beach Town Hall at 8:30 am.
After arriving at the gardens, the group will watch a brief movie before taking part in a private, guided tour of the gardens. Afterwards, you’re on your own to get lunch at one of the restaurants on the premises and explore other parts of this massive historic landmark which includes walking trails, a zoo, an arboretum, a museum, a gift shop and more!
The bus will return to Kure Beach, leaving Brookgreen Gardens at 4:00 pm. The cost of the trip is a low $32 per person which includes admission to the gardens, the private tour, the bus trip and driver tip.
At the time you book your trip, you can also opt to pay an extra $7 to be booked on a 45-minute Creek Cruise that takes participants along abandoned rice fields to view the beautiful scenery and wildlife along a tributary of the Waccamaw River. The gardens should be beautiful in April, so book your trip today! Payment in the form of cash or check is required at the time of booking.
