Beam me up for the grandure that is a Longwood Christmas! There is simply so much to do at Longwood Gardens during the Holiday season that I have to make these multiple posts Today, it’s all about the lights!
With over 500,000 lights on display, Longwood has one of the most romantic holiday walks around. And this doesn’t even include the evening lit dancing fountains.
Walking the vast acreage of lights is wonderful. Even the grand fountain lawn is lit up.
The tree’s are great, either up close are from a distance!
I love taking this stroll each year. And it’s become my new tradition. It’s romantic, crisp and festive. My fellow wanders are always smiling. They also have a fantastic little hut where one can buy hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream, cookies or a hot buttery pretzel (my favorite).
And don’t forget to go below the conservatory and head outside. The view is lovely.
They also tend to have the outdoor trains here! Yet another fun treat.
And of course there those trees that are adorned in all their outdoor glory. This one is a hit every year!
Come back to see part two of what’s in store at Longwood this holiday season! Next time were going indoors! You can see what is on tap at Longwood now through January 9th, 2011 by visiting www.longwoodgardens.org
