This place is one of the nicer spots on the planet. A place to see natural beauty that has been cared and lovingly nurtured. There is so much to see and look at that you could spend the entire day and not see everything. Bring a camera, the views and plants encourage people to be photographers. You might think the admission is a little steep for a garden going in but chances are you will be considering a membership application on the way out.

A must visit for anybody. You can spend the entire day walking at kind this place. Bring your own basket with lunch and enjoy it under the sun or in the shade on the grass. They restaurant within the gardens is very good as well. There is lots too see here especially when everything is in bloom. We are annual members and will renew every year. This place is great.

Longwood Gardens is perfect for all ages. It's 1,077 acres of gardens which makes it perfect for a day trip. There is so much to explore here. Every season it's beautiful. Spring time everything is in bloom, summer time they have night events called Nightscape where they illuminate some trees and paths which makes for a special night. Summer also includes magnificent fireworks. Fall is when all the leaves are transformed and end up being a perfect shade of orange, yellow and red. Winter time is my personal favorite because they decorate for Christmas and put lights on all the trees and have everything decorated.

The membership here is worth it. The events are amazing, whether your there to take your kids to have breakfast with Santa or the Easter Bunny. The Christians decorations are a must see. They put a lot of work in to making things look perfect year round. Also, check out the bathrooms in the conservatory, they're world famous for being one of the highest rated bathrooms in the country.

This is a great place to visit alone or with family and friends. My husband and I have gone several times and discover new gardens and places to explore in every visit. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a ton, although there are nice spots to sit and relax all around. The cafe has surprisingly yummy food, although it has been chaotic with each visit, with lines out the door, and disgruntled employees providing services. Once you get your food and find a table, it is all good and you can enjoy yourself again.

Peaceful, not many mosquitos and starts to get old after a while. We had a membership for a couple years but find ourselves at Ridley Creek state park more often.

Our Bonsai Collection fascinates visitors of all ages. Learn more about the art of bonsai, and the history of our collection on our blog: http://longwoodgardens.org/blog/2015-06-09t000000/short-history-tiny-trees
The Japanese art of bonsai originated in China as the practice known as penjing. Early in Chinese history, trees and other plants were collected from the wild and grown in containers. The practice moved to Japan many centuries ago through social and economic interaction with China. Over the years, both countries developed various techniques that we continue to use in creating bonsai today. The Japanese word bonsai translates to "tree in a shallow...

There isn’t a more beautiful season to explore Longwood Gardens and all 30+ Gardens in America’s Garden Capital than during Spring! We’re just one of many Philly Gardens (all located within 30 miles of one another!) that has tulips in bloom. Make plans to visit us and all of the Gardens that make up America’s Garden Capital at americasgardencapital.org. #AmericasGardenCapital
