300 Airlie Road
Just two miles west of Wrightsville Beach, Airlie Gardens has 67 acres of formal gardens, 10 acres of lakes, more than 75,000 azaleas (go in the spring for sure!), the tall Airlie Oak circa 1545 and a seasonal butterfly house.
There are trails for strolling, a tram for bloom tours and special events with bird hikes, a summer concert series and winter's 'Enchanted Airlie' with thousands of lights. Gorgeous in the spring and the holidays.
