Glimpses of: Longwood Gardens // Kennett Square, PA

I’ve been to Philadelphia a minimum of four times in the last two years and each time I beg to travel the 30 minutes to Longwood Gardens. There is a reason, and it’s not because I’m a creature of habit.

The horticulture oasis consists of more than 1,077 acres of pristine gardens, enchanting woodlands and expansive meadows in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. If you have a thing for all things magical, it’s a must-see.

And now, I imagine you’re thinking to yourself 1,077 acres of gardens? How many plants can I look at? Girl (or boy), trust. It’s 1,077 acres of 11,000 different plant varieties and alluring vistas for a unique experience at every turn. From the Italian Water Garden and the Flower Garden Walk to aquatic display gardens, you’ll find yourself mystified at each colorful turn. And that’s just the outside. Inside the conservatory (my favorite part) offers a lavish world of exotic flowers, cacti, ferns and bonsai.

If you’ve yet the chance to explore, here’s glimpses of Longwood Gardens to savor until you get a taste of the real thing:
