  • Longwood Gardens is a tradition with my mother. It is absolutely stunningly beautiful anytime of the year. My mother used a complimentary wheelchair which was her first time using one. LG is completely wheelchair friendly. It's a fantastic place to bring someone who is generally housebound as you can be out in nature in wheelchair accommodating environment. We had a wonderful leisurely lunch in the restaurant which started our visit off perfectly. The rest of our visit was awe inspiring as it always is.
  • This place is absolutely beautiful. We have the season pass because it’s so nice to just be able to walk around and look at all the beautiful gardens. It’s a very calming place and makes you wish your own gardens could look as nice. If you’ve never been, you definitely have to go because there’s nothing else like it.
  • Beautiful, peaceful gardens and amazing conservatory. Always something really cool going on here whether its live music, concerts, or Christmas joy. Membership here is well worth it. Great food and local brews. Fountains and fireworks show is unlike anything I've ever seen. Absolutely stunning!
  • I always have and always will love this place. When I first visited many years ago, the fountain display was under construction. Now there are so many new features and an amazing fountain show. Every time I go it is new experience and I am not left without awe. I cant wait to see what new features the holiday display has this year
  • An amazing place to be at for a whole day. They have the most beautiful and enormous water fountains. They dance to the music . It's a totally different experience to see the musical fountains up close and from far away, right outside the green houses. Just below the water fountain is a spectacular water fall. The whole garden is picturesque with lots of flowers, trees , couple of tree houses.
