    The garden's 40 acres include one of the largest and most diverse perennial gardens on the East Coast and the only classical, domed conservatory open to the public in the mid-Atlantic region.

    Wonderful Japanese garden, and if you have little ones, don't miss the splash ground in the children's garden. Great secret summer cool down spot!

    July 4th is traditionally a free day for families, but don't think you're getting near the water area in the kids' garden. Pay admission and have your own space another day.

    Go to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and view the Conservatory from the tree house in the Children's Garden. Don't forget to look for tree frogs in the horsetail, and climb the 100-year-old mulberry tr
