Despite being a Pennsylvania ‘thing’, whenever people ask me what the must-see destinations are in Delaware, my first response is always ‘Longwood Gardens!’ I go as often as possible and every time I see something new that I had previously discovered. Try as I might, I’ve never been able to make time to go during the holiday season for the annual Christmas at Longwood display. Now that I’ve been, I will be back every year.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…
Tickets are required for admission to this event, so be sure to buy in advance as they do sell out. My advice: don’t wait for the weekend! Skip the crowds and chaos of the weekend tourists and visit during off-peak times – Monday through Thursday evening – to see this stunning show. Also, I did not make it around to the fountains on this visit but there are fantastic water shows set to music.
The holidays can be hectic with all the shopping and the visiting friends and family. Put a little magic back into your holiday and visit Longwood this holiday season.
