  • 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.
