McCrory Gardens and South Dakota State Arboretum are stunning botanical gardens in Brookings, SD. Brookings is one hour north of Sioux Falls, and an easy drive on I-29. Typically I visit the 70 acre gardens with my mother in the summer or fall, but this year took the trip for their annual Garden Glow event. Garden Glow was created in 2015 and the popularity of this holiday and very festive event has exponentially grown every since. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendees purchased limited tickets during slotted times this year. This ensured the upmost comfort and safety of the guests in attendance. It was a great experience, absolutely enchanting, and I recommend making the trip to Brookings!
Garden Glow runs through January 6, 2021. For more information on purchasing tickets, please visit the McCrory Garden’s website here: https://www.sdstate.edu/mccrory-gardens.
