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.
As owner and head trainer at Classic Touch Farm, Julia Hewitt brings more than a quarter-century of equine experience to each lesson, which can be offered in the disciplines of hunter, jumper, equitation, and dressage. Spread across 40 acres, the farm hosts students of all riding levels as they learn how to correctly and confidently command their mount across paddocks and over trails. Though beginners are encouraged to take private lessons in order to learn the basics and avoid snout-on collisions, more advanced lessons may be taken in a private or group setting.

At Launch Trampoline Park, visitors of all ages bounce, flip, and twirl as they burn calories and defy gravity on four jumping courts—including one designed especially for kids and another for playing extreme dodge ball—comprised of adjoining floor trampolines and angled wall trampolines. There’s also a mammoth crash pad so that you can be assured a soft landing should you attempt any feats of aerial wonder.
Four fun inflatable obstacles also available to challenge and entertain visitors. "The Big Baller" sees visitors attempting to leap across a line of giant inflatable balls, a la the popular television show Wipeout. "The Jump Off" is a BASE-jump-style amusement that safely mimics leaping from a building ledge onto a super-soft landing zone. "Daredevil island" is an ascending obstacle course that ends with a free-fall jumping platform combination unit designed to look like a rocky island. And "Meltdown" is an eight-player action game which challenges groups' stamina, agility, and reactions.
In addition to glow parties and special events, including after-proms and overnight lock-ins, Launch Trampoline Park also offers fitness classes that provide low-impact workouts while incinerating up to 1,000 calories each bouncy hour. For those seeking a break from bouncing, the park has an arcade, café with free WiFi, and a dedicated lounge for parents.
