Extremely beautiful and Its a wonderful way to spend summer. The entrance is beautiful and its very lovely in the summer because the flowers are blooming. Also there's a part where you can just sit there and relax. It's like having a mini Central Park in Long Island. Furthermore there are picnic tables where you can have fun with the... More

Old Westbury Gardens is absolutely beautiful. It is best to go in the spring or summer because you will be walking around outdoors. There are many different paths and flower gardens you can visit. All worth seeing. If you are in the area and would like a nice day out- I would recommend this spot.

The old Phipps mansion and gardens are beautiful. An attraction that is not to be missed if you visit Long Island in the summer, especially if you love the romance of gilded age homes.

I visited the Old Westbury Gardens this past summer. I am an avid photographer so I have wanted to visit the gardens for quite some time since I heard how beautiful they were. I took a number of photos and really enjoyed my outing there. There is an entry fee but the donation goes to the upkeep of this restored... More

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, even on a misting late fall day! ( I would suggest going in the spring so you get the added attraction of seeing everything on the property in bloom.) We began with a scone, clotted cream and apricot preserves. Then we had an assortment of delicious petite sandwiches and 3 choices of... More

A lovely place to spend the afternoon. You may have seen the gardens during the wedding scene in Hitch, or maybe during Royal Pains. Truly a lovely home and estate!

Calm, tranquil, a place you want to go to. Relax, take a long walk. Look listen and get a little of the old time "Gold Coast" flavor. Look for and go to one of there activities.
