Spring Break Daytrips: Kennesaw's Smith-Gilbert Gardens

Posted: Updated:
KENNESAW, Ga. -

Our search for perfect Spring Break trips for those staying close to home continues in Kennesaw, to what many call a "hidden gem" of North Georgia.

Smith-Gilbert Gardens is a 16-acre plant paradise, featuring more than 3,000 species and woodland paths connecting each element. Attractions include a Bonsai exhibit, tea house and waterfall, and rose and camellia gardens. At the center of it all is the Hiram Butler Home, built in the late 1800s and once owned by a Confederate railroad man. The house was purchased in 1970, and the grounds turned into the serene setting now open to the public.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is "on-assignment" this Spring Break, checking out North Georgia getaways, and visited Smith-Gilbert Gardens. Click the videos above to check it out!
