Travel Tip Thursday: Longwood Gardens

Posted Nov 04 2010 12:00am


There's a place in Chester County, PA in the town of Kennett Square (Mushroom Capital of the World... but that's a post for a different day) that's is so lovely, all year long, that you'll want to visit again and again.  It's called Longwood Gardens..  I, myself, haven't visited Longwood Gardens in a couple of years.  It's high time I went back.   Click here to go to their website.


One of the many fountain displays


Longwood Gardens is about 30 miles from Philadelphia.  It covers over 1,000 acres of ground (wear your walking shoes!) and has over 11,000 plants, trees, fountains greenhouses and ponds and much much more!
It's open year-round and they have all kinds of special events throughout the year.


This always reminds me of Alice in Wonderland

The Treehouse



Lilyponds

One thing I've never seen but plan to see this year is Christmas at Longwood.  








I've never been to Longwood Gardens at night.  I hope to do that very soon.








Of course, they change their displays to coincide with the seasons...


Spring...


Summer...




Fall...






Winter...




Something I wasn't aware of is Longwood Gardens hosts concerts and other Arts functions.

It also has it's own restaurant! And of course, the obligatory Gift Shop.
Yes, I definitely need to visit Longwood Gardens again very soon, maybe for Christmas!
My good friend, Pseudo at Winds of Change  (formerly Pseudonymous High School Teacher) hosts Travel Tip Thursday.  You should check out her blog.  She lives in Hawaii and posts the most marvelous photos of places I can only dream about right now!  And she's doing a giveaway if you participate in TTT!!  Go check her out.  You won't be sorry.... jealous, but not sorry!
