The holidays are the only time of the year when it's appropriate to point at a plant and expect a kiss. Channel your mistletoe horticultural display into romance, then reward yourself with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to Night Lights: A Winter Solstice Celebration at the Naples Botanical Garden (up to a $30 value). The event takes place December 20–23 and December 26–30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Brian Holley, executive director of Naples Botanical Garden, welcomes guests to join the mirth and merriment of Night Lights: A Winter's Solstice celebration. Each night of the festival, the air hums with live music and audiophile butterflies that crowd-surf amid the blooms of six gardens. Strolling amid 170 acres of verdant flora, guests can munch on treats catered by Tastebuds or toast their own marshmallows over an open fire. Polychromatic lights decorate the event spaces, creating an enchanting aura of holiday cheer and entwining winter-wary shrubs to prevent their escape to equatorial climes. On December 22, the garden takes advantage of the year's shortest night to project The Polar Express on Winter Solstice Movie Night.

“I had not been to the gardens in several years so it was a big surprise to see the changes. The place is laid out beautifully and, for me, it was a photographers paradise. The only criticism I can give the garden is that they have a strict no food rule -- that is fine, but the small garden restaurant was not open. On a real positive note, they had several hydration stations throughout the garden. They supplied disposable cups and extremely cold water. That was a real nice touch. I am looking forward to going back to the garden when the new orchard section opens. By the way, it appears that the garden is also very kid and pet friendly.”
“Take the short guided tour .... It is a great start to your day at these beautiful gardens!”
