Visiting Airlie Gardens in Wilminton, NC feels like stepping into the past. Four-hundred-year-old Giant Oaks draped in Spanish moss dot the landscape and provide the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Sculptures and artistic landscaping complement the natural, and most beautiful, aspects of the gardens. The butterfly garden is quiet and fluttery. An old church with an ancient cemetery rests along the walk around the property. There's an adult-sized playhouse made of recycled glass bottles. It's a perfect afternoon getaway!
