  • Iron Orchid Photography Kennett Square
    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.

  • Inniscrone Golf Club
    Perched on a hilltop, the Inniscrone Golf Club clubhouse is an enchanting colonial structure made of stone walls with a white porch and columns. But that's not the only feature that draws inspiration from the past. Carved through the rolling hills of Chester County, the 18-hole, par 70 course conjures an old world feel with fairways threaded through mature trees, mounds, and thick rough. The layout also reflects strategic course design, especially on the par-four 18th hole. Though only 350 yards from tee to green, the signature finishing hole plays into an elevated green guarded by a gauntlet of bunkers, like the secret lair of a paranoid greenskeeper. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 70 course Length of 6,561 yards from the tips Course rating of 72.1 from the tips Slope rating of 143 from the tips Five tee options Scorecard

  • Kreutz Creek Winery Live
    In 1989, Jim Kirkpatrick received a winemaking kit from his wife, Carole. At the time, neither Jim nor Carole knew it, but that kit churned out more than just wine—it also produced a dream. When Jim's homemade concoctions were a hit, the couple decided to try their hand at growing their own grapes, and soon moved to a home in Wrightsville surrounded by 3 acres of land. Just 100 yards from Kreutz Creek, the Kirkpatrick's new location presented the ideal location to expand on Jim's newfound dream. Today, Kreutz Creek Vineyards generates an assortment of red, white, and seasonal varietals. Jim and Carole also use their tranquil grounds to host community events throughout the year, including bonfires and movie nights.
