My Experiences: On Labor Day Weekend, 9/1/14, my family and I have the opportunity to visit Gibbs Garden. It was a great choice to experience something new. It was our first time to visit Gibbs Garden. We love it: the stroll down the garden paths, looking at waterlilies, crossing the bridges, enjoying the shades at many decks, taking hundred of pictures with so many beautiful flowers & sceneries, taking in all the wonderful landscaping of nature, gladly accepting the peace & beauty of our surroundings. Our only thoughts was to come back to experience autumn because of how beautiful it would be to see the colorful leaves on the trees at the paths leading to unending beauties. It’s breathtaking. It’s an experience to remember. I would want to have a mini Gibbs Garden in my backyard. Perhaps in my dream… A person can dream.
Pros: best for a stroll, relax, enjoy nature, photography, reading, watching, inhale nature, picnic, peace, tranquil, harmony, fall season would be best by the display of colorful leaves,
Cons: long drive in the back road. No interstate there. Could be a love/hate relationship here
I rate it 5 stars!
