People have been going to Hicks Nurseries  for 160 years.  It is not just a place to purchase plants.  It is a destination for all seasons.  There are many events depending on the time of year.  October is Fall Festival “Otto The Ghost ” time at Hicks.  With its easy accessibility,  it is an enjoyable place for all, including children and/or grandchildren. This year, they have added a hay maze, Country Kitchen for snacks, and many other fun activities for the kids. They have a huge amount of Fall decorations!


The paved parking lot has six handicapped spaces just outside the main entrance, which has automatic, sliding glass doors. The concrete or smooth brick aisles are wide enough to maneuver easily while enjoying the gorgeous florals.  Although we were here to visit “Otto” we couldn’t ignore the beautiful Christmas displays already set up. You have to walk through Christmas to get to Otto. Otto is always fun, and a great place for photos.


Multi-stall, handicapped accessible restrooms are located in a hallway. There are signs to direct you.  There is a large, handicapped stall, wheelchair-accessible sinks and a baby-changing station. There are also two accessible, single-occupancy restrooms in the outdoor, white building. Just go around to the back and you will see the signs.


In addition to plants and garden supplies, Hicks sells gift items. Right now there are gifts for Halloween, Thanksgiving and  Christmas.


We were there during the week, so it was very quiet. Otto is available every day, but the Festival is only on weekends until Halloween.


We love Otto and Hicks and will keep coming back for more memories.


As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.hicksnurseries.com, to “know before you go.”
