One of the most magical sights on the South Strand is but a few steps away. Brookgreen Gardens Nights of a Thousand Candles is back this year, and visiting the expansive garden grounds by twinkling lights is a must-do experience for all. This is especially true for guests of Lachicotte Vacation Rentals, where you're so close that it would be a shame not to visit.
The season comes alive this December at Brookgreen Gardens with Nights of a Thousand Candles. Located just a short drive from Pawleys Island, this beautiful spectacle features more than 5,500 hand-lit candles adorning the historic gardens. Nights of a Thousand Candles has become one of the premier holiday events along the Grand Strand. Past visitors to Brookgreen Gardens know the destination for its acres of impeccably- maintained flower and plant life, its impressive statuary, its fascinating history, and its zoo and aviary. In December, though, it becomes even more enchanting, as the halls (er, trees) are decked in a most fantastic manner.
Along with being dazzled by the sparkling lights, visitors will have the chance to stroll through the gardens as they sip on festive apple cider and listen to Christmas carolers. Combine this with the sound of handbells ringing throughout the gardens, and you, your friends and your family will truly feel immersed in the joy of the season. Nights of a Thousand Candles takes place from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. each night, and one of its most treasured events, the Christmas Tree Lighting, occurs at 5:45 p.m. This year, Brookgreen Gardens will have an 80-ft Fir Tree, decorated with 70,000 shimmering lights. A tree- lighting ceremony will take place daily throughout the duration of the event.
