This is a great place to take the kids and let them run. Beautiful gardens and imaginative works of art. Great for taking pictures or just a stroll through the wonderfully laid out gardens.

Even in the absence of the sculptures, LongHouse Reserve is one of the finest botanical gardens/arboretums I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. They have amassed some remarkable specimens, and the landscape design flows naturally between the different areas of the property. That said, the sculpture...More

The grounds and sculptures are equally superb, and even qualify as fairly peaceful if you arrive soon after it opens. Buckminster Fuller and Dale Chihuly are among the big names, but their works are not necessarily the most arresting.More
