Airlie Gardens

467 Year Old Oak - Airlie Gardens

I was in Wrightsville Beach after Mother's Day and it was a little chilly but lots of fun!  Finally after all these years, I went to Airlie Gardens - if you've not been, go now while the weather is reasonable and not so many mosquitos. The 467 year old Airlie Oak was impressive and so was the Butterfly House. The garden dates back to 1886 with 67 acres of historical gardens, lots of fountains and water features.
Also went to the Kids Museum in downtown Wilmington.  So much fun and so many different areas for children to play - trains, crafts, outside play area with a real school bus, doctor/dentist office and we didn't even get to all the other areas.
 Great Mother's Day trip!
