A great escape. Sunday champagne brunch is to die for.
Become enchanted in a secret garden
Peak bloom for the Azelea Woods is mid-May, usually around Mother's Day.
Walk to the quarry
Take the tram tour after paying at the visitors center, then make a house tour.
You can definitely spend an entire weekend here - wandering the grounds alone is wonderful. Most definitely a seasonal visit is required!!!

Nice place to know Mr. Du Pont IV
