No matter the season, there's something to do at Longwood Gardens, such as scheduled OrKid Days visited by musical storytellers (February 18 and March 16) and Beyond the Garden Gates days, held twice a month, during which visitors learn what makes the arboretum possible from the mouths of the gardeners themselves. Exotic specimens in bloom within the greenhouse at the moment include the SVO Black Pearl, a nearly black hybrid orchid; the bright-orange aloe nyeriensis; and Mandela’s Gold, a sunshine-colored bird of paradise. Perusers may also stroll through the 4-acre Orchid Extravaganza exhibit, a daily event which showcases more than 5,000 orchids in different settings, forms, and artwork.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Longwood Gardens

Though Longwood Gardens owes its current incarnation to the tireless efforts of industrialist, philanthropist, and conservationist Pierre du Pont, the property’s history stretches back to precolonial days. The Peirce family purchased the land from William Penn himself in 1700, and by the end of the century the Quakers had already begun developing an arboretum on the premises. In the century that followed, the homestead was purchased by an ambitious 36-year-old du Pont in 1906. Throughout the next 30 years, du Pont built a legacy rife with extravagant European-style fountains, a picturesque 600-foot garden walk, and 40 indoor and outdoor gardens. Today, visitors experience a bit of du Pont’s passion for the tropical flora of the Americas during jaunts through the property’s 1,077 colorful acres, where they run into everything from flowering trees and delicate hybrids to carnivorous pitcher plants and an 86-acre Meadow Garden. In addition to cultivating lush flora, the garden’s stewards also encourage growing minds with an ever-changing roster of events, such as internationally acclaimed musical acts and immersive educational experiences.

Customer Reviews

We took our 4 and 6 year old children there over the weekend...it was the perfect thing to do on a cold, snowy day to get their energy out in the conservatory. The conservatory is huge and gorgeous and smelled like spring which was a huge pick me up for our winter weary family. The children's area is magnificent and magical. Every time I visit, I can't help but say out loud, "Aren't we SO lucky to live (relatively) close to a wonderful place like this?" Can't recommend it enough. And the gift shop is great too.
