Free Things to Do: No, Harry P. Leu Gardens isn't free all the time, but plan your visit just so and you'll enjoy gratis admission, available on the first Monday of every month from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with last admittance at 4:00 pm. Fans of phenomenal flora delight in Leu Gardens, where cycads and azaleas, philodendrons and bromeliads and other exotic offerings – some with harder-to-pronounce names than others – grow and flourish and pose colorfully for photographers' cameras. The Leu House Museum, a beautifully restored 19th Century home, is open for guided tours on the hour and half-hour. Fine art fans will find a multitude of sculptures dotted among the horticultural offerings, as well.
Best Things to Do: Leu Gardens offer a peaceful, relaxing spot in which to enjoy the beauty of nature. Guests can tread shaded paths and view large oak and camphor trees, as well as roses, camellias, and azaleas. The property also includes the Leu House Museum, a restored farmhouse. Be sure to visit the floral clock before saying goodbye to these lovely gardens. The first Monday of each month is free admission all day.
