We visited Longwood Christmas with my mother. While she is ambulatory, we knew that the amount of walking that would be required to really see the displays would be beyond her comfort level, so we rented a wheelchair. Everyone - from the people at Longwood's customer care center, to the Longwood employees around the property, to the other visitors - could not have been nicer and more accommodating to our first-time experience. And the sights were gorgeous! The displays inside the conservatory were lovely, with poinsettias of different hues, beautifully decorated trees, vibrant foliage. We stayed until dark to see the lighted trees. They were magnificent. Go, if you still have the chance!

We recently attended the wine and jazz event at Longwood Gardens, and I was amazed with the scope of the gardens! They have something for everyone, and I don't think it would be possible to even begin to see everything in a single day! If we lived closer, I would definitely have a membership and be there regularly! Also, if you are lucky enough to live within an easy drive - check out their list of offered classes - they seem to have an incredible selection, so a little something for everyone!

Longwood Gardens is ranked high up there with Butchart Gardens and Keukenhof. It is a must see. There are many parts to the gardens, a little something for everyone from waterfalls and a conservatory to towers and tree houses. I was really surprised at how well everything was kept. One disappointment I had was that there was just more grass than anything. Wish there were more flowers. Buy an extra ticket for late night concerts and water fountain shows.

Had a great time at Longwood to see the Holiday displays and the lights. We chose a Sunday after Christmas and earlier in the day, and are so glad we did. The crowds after about 4 p.m. are super crazy! Not to miss are the big exhibition halls, this year with a bird theme throughout. They flooded a whole hall to create a mirroring effect and one tree was decorated solely in peacock colors and ornaments. ProTip: Get away from the masses and take a walk around the exterior of the property. A new meadow is set to open in 2015 and the brand new raised walkways are really nice.

"ON VIEW APRIL 5 THROUGH MAY 23" This was the advertisement regarding their Tulips on their website. We went April 14, and there were absolutely no tulips in bloom. Plus all the fountains were shut off. The greenhouse was actually really nice, but that alone was not really worth the price of admission. I'm sure it looks pretty if you time it right, but for us its pretty much a disappointment. Don't trust the website. Hopefully if you call ahead they could tell you exactly what is happening.

Just visited Longwood Gardens for the Wine and Jazz festival and had a blast! Great weekend trip from an educational standpoint and equally fulfilling from botany/architectural landscaping stance. Make sure to bring a camera for the fountains and greenhouses. Spent the day strolling at a slow pace and still didn't manage to see the whole thing!
