Night show way better than day show. Well worth the visit. Broadway show accompanied the fountain show. Gardens are exquisite. Conservancy wonderful. Lots of food options. Easy access. Worth the money.

Having been a member going often to Longwood Gardens for many years, I am excited to see they have continued the expansion of beverages (and food) available in multiple locations of the grounds. Especially, the added garden area next to the refurbished main fountains. There...More

I've been going to Longwood for over 20 years and have always thought it was one of the most amazing places around to spend an afternoon (or even the whole day). With the improvements they've made since I moved away from the Philly area 6...More
