Brookgreen Gardens

Murrells Inlet, SC

Brookgreen Gardens’ two indoor holiday exhibits are included in garden admission. "Holiday Memories of Yesteryear: Nostalgia, Beauty, and Fun," builds upon its previous show-stopping displays of electric model trains (both Lionel and American Flyer), period Christmas trees, and other nostalgia from holiday celebrations dating from the Gilded Age to the Mid-1980s. Along with the Lionel train layout, there is a full amusement park in miniature including The Big Dipper, an above-the-track-style wooden roller coaster, and "The Scorpion", an inverted roller coaster (patterned after “Montu” at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL).
