Pennsylvania..... Longwood Gardens

Blog Post created by painedplatinum on Jul 29, 2017

I happen to live in a State that offers quite a bit. We have mountains, big cities, open lands, quick rides to the beach, one hour from NYC, two hrs from Washington D.C. We also have a place called Longwood Gardens. Pierre du Pont, back in the early 1900's purchased what had been a farm and surrounding land. He created this botanical garden. It has indoor and outdoor wonders. There are over 1000 acres to stroll, hike, breathe in, contemplate, and enjoy. There also is an indoor conservatory that is amazing. The orchids are my favorite. A real photographer could spend weeks at this place. I added a few pics below.

I stayed at the new Residence Inn Philadelphia Glen Mills/Concordville. The hotel was almost as colorful as some of the nature exhibits!
