We visited the Morris Arboretum for the first time last weekend, as a nearby alternative to Longwood Gardens. We really enjoyed our visit and the arboretum has a lot to offer. I will note, for any party which includes someone in a wheelchair - the parking lot, near the gift shop and cafe, is at the top of a hill, so your visit starts with a sharpish trot downhill into the gardens, and you spend the rest of your visit winding your way back uphill. If you are not in good shape, pushing a wheelchair through Morris Arboretum is a serious challenge. In general, they are not particularly accomodating to handicapped visitors, although the main paths are paved, and there is a bathroom for disabled visitors at the cafe. The shuttle bus from the lower parking lot didn't look feasible for the wheelchair, but we were lucky enough to get a space at the upper lot. Many of the gardens (rose garden, log cabin, fernery, among others) are not accessible. However, as noted, we did enjoy our visit, and there is still much to see. The Garden Railway is a real gem (no paved path, but accessible if you can push your wheelchair on the dirt path).
