Cypress Gardens


Cypress Gardens is located in Monck's Corner, South Carolina. (This is different from the Cypress Gardens in Florida.) It was created in 1927 by Benjamin R. Kittredge. Today, it is a 163 acre garden that contains three miles of foot paths. Visitors can also view the gardens from flat bottom boats. It's really a lovely place. The black swamp water reflects flowering dogwoods, daffodils, and azaleas beautifully.  Also on the grounds, is a greenhouse filled with butterflies (there is a display of the lifecycle of them), birds, a pond, and an arthropod exhibit.

For those who like trivia, Cypress Gardens was the site used for filming several movies, including Cold Mountain (2003), Swamp Thing (1982), The Notebook (2004), and The Patriot (2000).

The gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Cost of admission for adults is $10.00, and for children, $5.00.  A guided boat ride would cost an additional $5.00, but you have the option of an self-guided tour for no additional cost. 


  1. Lots of movies filmed there. Like the nice long trail.

    1. I was surprised that Swamp Thing was filmed there.

  2. Hi Sherry - I'd love the idea of a languid boat ride around so I can see the plants ... obviously gorgeous, seeing as so many films have included scenes filmed there - cheers Hilary

    1. Lots of producers thought the place looked gorgeous, too!

  3. The lushness of South Carolina lends itself to a movie set. These gardens look tremendous

  4. Funnily, I have a childhood memory of seeing big red London buses with the destination Cypress Gardens on the front! That was a place in the London Docklands by the River Thames! I think your one is nicer!

    1. How interesting that there was a place with the same name on your side of the pond.

  5. Wow, such a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing!
