About this trip

 Brookgreen Gardens is excited to welcome Bruce Munro and his art to the Gardens. This will be the only chance to experience Bruce's incomparable installations in the Eastern United States in 2020. 


Acclaimed British artist, Bruce Munro, designs light centric, expansive installations.  He has been creating these exhibits around the world for 15 years.  His current exhibit located in Paso Robles, California is so popular that it has been held over until June.  The Brookgreen exhibit appropriately named "Southern Light"  runs April through September and will feature seven works of art in light and mixed media, each designed specifically for the natural garden rooms where they will be installed.  The illuminated installations will consist of tens of thousands of components.  


This trip allows time to get oriented and view the Gardens before sunset and then be dazzled as the installations glow with the onset of darkness.  The trip also features a stop at Broadway on the Beach in Myrtle Beach for dinner on your own at any of the many dining options before we arrive at Brookgreen Gardens.

I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

Really enjoyed visiting New Bern and watching the musical. The city is beautiful and we will definitely return to do more exploring. Many thanks to Patty for arranging this trip.

We had a relaxing trip. Had time for a very good lunch and some fun shops. The play was interesting. I enjoyed learning about that time in history.

For me, there was not enough information given about the house and the man that built it. We spent the better part of two days in the bus traveling and only spent about two hours touring the house. And for me, but not my wife, there was way too much time allotted for shopping. I can appreciate those who enjoyed the Downton Abbey display, but I had not watched the tv show and would much rather spent time in the Biltmore house or on the grounds. I did get some information from photographs and writings on the wall of the hotel and from the lecture in the church in the village. But, with so much to learn, I did not think we allocated our time efficiently. Jim Gunther
