Live in Color at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art
Today, Closed Today
Lavish gardens in bloom, ornate sculptures and a mansion. This is guaranteed to be an afternoon well spent.
A visit to Cheekwood includes the Cheekwood Mansion (where the Art Museum is housed) and their gorgeous gardens. The grounds are well-manicured, dotted with sculptures and are definitely worthy of your Instagram feed. Block off 2-3 hours to trek through the architecturally-awesome Cheek Family Mansion and surrounding gardens, using the maps to navigate the trails. There is always a world-class exhibit on display, so check the calendar
often! Past exhibits have included Bruce Munro's "Light" and Chihuly's hand-blown glass sculptures.
Cheekwood was awarded one of the 10 Best Public Gardens by USA Today Travel
, so you know this is worth the $14 price of admission. Get the full Cheekwood experience and end your afternoon with lunch. Dine at their on-site restaurant, The Pineapple Room, and enjoy a dish overlooking the lush west lawn. Fresh made quiche and a cup of hot tea, anyone? (Pinkies out, if you're feelin' fancy!)
