Nights Of A Thousand Candles Is Back At South Carolina's Brookgreen Gardens

This year there is an opportunity to experience the Gardens in a much more exclusive way.

Every holiday season, for over twenty years now, Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, turns into an illuminated holiday wonder known as Nights of A Thousand Candles. The Gardens spark to life each evening from the glow of more than 2,700 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights. This year's event kicks off on November 26th and will have many dates through the first of the new year.

Visitors can walk the pathways among all the twinkle of the festive lights from 4 pm to 9 pm nightly while sipping on a cup of warm cider. Your walk will have a soundtrack of live holiday music and carolers singing. Each evening at 6:45 PM, you can witness "Lighting of the Trees" at the Leonard Pavilion. And have no fear of fickle winter weather, the event is rain or shine.

Visitors can also reserve a table at Austin's Harvest Restaurant which is located inside the Gardens to really get the whole experience. The restaurant serves everything from soups and salads to burgers, sandwiches, fish, and so much more.

Tickets for non-members are $35 for adults and $17 for children

This year there is an opportunity to experience the gardens in a much more romantic, intimate way. On November 25th, the Gardens will host The Nights of a Thousand Candles Preview Benefit, which will offer a limited number of guests a walk through the gardens along with a variety of beverages, including wine or beer, and heavy hors d'oeuvres, which you can find stationed throughout the Gardens. Tickets are $150 but are well worth it for the exciting and exclusive event. The proceeds from the event will go towards the Brookgreen Gardens and help support their future initiatives. Ticket sales for the benefit will close on November 20th, so act fast for your spot. We don't know about you, but this sounds like the most romantic date night!

Nights of a Thousand Candles runs all the way through the season until January 1. Tickets are available for purchase now through their website.
