Overview

In 1906, industrialist Pierre du Pont (1870-1954) purchased a small farm near Kennett Square, PA, to save a collection of historic trees from being sold for lumber. Today, Longwood Gardens is one of the world’s great horticultural displays, encompassing 1,077 acres of dazzling gardens, woodlands, meadows, fountains, 10,010-pipe Aeolian organ and 4.5-acre conservatory. Longwood continues the mission set forth by Mr. du Pont to inspire people through excellence in garden design, horticulture, education and the performing arts, through programming that includes exhibitions, musical performances by leading artists, renowned horticulture education programs, horticulture research, environmental stewardship and community engagement.

The gardens are beautiful even in the fall, and the staff is well positioned to explain things (like how not to get lost). This is a rare American treasure. The fountain show (at 3pm in front of the arboretum) is actually spectacular and not to...More

I love Longwood Gardens and have since my first visit more than 50 years ago. The greenhouses are wonderful to explore and the outside walking paths are great. We watched a fountain show and it was lovely.

Longwood is a treasure. Fabulous gardens, amazing glasshouses, incredible fountains that move to music and one of the world's biggest organs. A real day out. We hired a car and drove just under an hour from Philadelphia. We live near Kew Gardens in England and...More

I wouldn't think so. The roads outside Longwood are very busy. Besides, along with the fireworks are fountains displays and music. The fireworks are only part of the show. Sorry so late with this answer.
