The Secret Garden In North Carolina You’re Guaranteed To Love

When I think ‘secret garden’ I think of a place that makes me feel as if I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and been transported to another time and place. For North Carolina, the first destination that comes to my mind is Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo. Beautiful, historic, unique, it’s the perfect place to spend a day away from the world.
