Out of 260 botanical gardens across the U.S., Bellingrath Gardens & Home in Theodore, Alabama (near Mobile) was just ranked in the top 10 ‘most stunning’ of them all. Here’s why.

Pergola Kits USA conducted an analysis on the beauty of botanical gardens nationwide, ranking them based on TripAdvisor reviews and the number of times people use words like ‘stunning,’ ‘gorgeous,’ ‘lovely’ and breath-taking.’

Coming in at #7 was Bellingrath Home & Gardens, a gem in the Gulf Coast town of Theodore, Alabama. Here’s how they describe the charming spot:

“This public garden and home is the historic residence of Walter Bellingrath, who was one of the first Coca-Cola bottlers in the Southeast. Here you can enjoy more than 400 varieties of Alabama’s State Flower, camellias, as well as beautiful tropicals in the summer.”

Bellingrath Gardens & Home is full of incredible natural displays and fascinating historic detail, and we’re not surprised it ranked so highly.

In addition to its natural beauty, Bellingrath Gardens & Home is known for its incredible light display—dubbed Magic Christmas in Lights. Recently, it got ranked the #4 best Christmas display in the nation, and if you’ve ever visited, you know why. It’s truly, well, magical.

Magic Christmas in Lights glows for the last time on January 3, but we’re already looking forward to visiting again in 2024’s holiday season.
