Most People Don’t Know North Carolina Has A Fairy Trail And It’s Positively Magical
Headed to Hendersonville this year? No visit to the City of Four Seasons would quite be complete without a magical stroll on the Fairy Trail at Bullington Gardens. Designed to positively enchant the little ones in the family, the Fairy Trail casts a wide net around grown ups, too.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Bullington Gardens was once a private residence and the nursery of a retired NYC policeman with a love for horticulture. After he retired and moved to Hendersonville, he opened a farm nursery which, following his death in 1989, was donated to the Henderson County Education Foundation and became Bullington Horticultural Learning Center. It was then leased to Henderson County Public Schools and is a joint effort with the NC Cooperative Extension. You can learn more on the official website of Bullington Gardens.
Wondering if the Gardens are open yet? They are, but the Fairy Trail is undergoing some spring cleaning and restorations. It will be open again by June 1, 2020. Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
