Murrells Inlet: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet is a popular tourist attraction with more than 900 sculptures dating as early as the seventeenth century. You can spend the entire day by simply touring hundreds of acres in the butterfly-shaped garden. Sculpted masterpieces are displayed in the garden's indoor exhibit galleries.
