A Longwood Christmas
November 28 to January 12
Longwood Gardens—located on an estate once owned by industrialist Pierre du Pont in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania—decorates inside and out for the holidays. Within the four-acre heated conservatory, you can find almost any seasonal plant you can think of—poinsettias, amaryllis, lilies, and others—as well as decorated trees that grow as high as 18 feet. Fruit takes a special focus, with the entryway decorated with red and green apples, and a Douglas adorned with 175 hand-blown glass pears. Outdoors, more than 500,000 lights spiral around even more trees, and fountains "dance" to holiday music in the Open Air Theatre.
