Longwood Gardens Day Trip: August 6
Longwood Gardens Day Trip: August 6
Wedged between Pennsylvania's Amish Country, Philadelphia, and the Mason Dixon line, the small town of Kennett Square plays host to one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Longwood Gardens features a thousand acres of gardens, meadows, woodlands and makes for a convenient day trip to escape the metro.
In 1906, businessman and philanthropist Pierre S. du Pont learned that a two centuries old arboretum was under threat of being cut down for timber. du Pont purchased the property, invested in it, and eventually created Longwood Gardens, one of North America's most beautiful display gardens. The summer exhibit includes dancing fountain performances. Join Torque Tours on an August trip to the gardens to honor du Pont's legacy.
