“Green Oasis outside of Philly”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

Longwood, located right outside of Philadelphia is a cornucopia of sights for the nature lover out there. The Gardens are acres upon acres of all types of plants, flowers, trees, and anything else involving plant life. There is not much to do here besides walking around and taking in the sights. This may not be for everyone, since it is a lot of walking and there is no action taking place. Think of it as a zoo for plants. There are also waterfalls and fountains and a pretty decent and green restaurant.

“Probably the best gardens anywhere”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

The outdoor displays and indoor displays make this a treat any time of the year. We are lucky enough to live nearby and go oftern and have never been disappointed. Other gardens we have visited around the world pale by comparision.

We normally go at Christmas to enjoy the beautiful displays throughout, but the place is gorgeous just about anytime of year. Just GO!
