‘A Longwood Christmas’ at Longwood Gardens: A Winter Wonderland Awaits!

A half-million lights, 6,000 seasonal plants, an 18-foot Fraser Fir, and a dose of holiday cheer combine to create A Longwood Christmas, one of the Brandywine Valley's most beloved holiday attractions. Back for the 2016-17 season, this annual event transforms the grounds of Longwood Gardens into a bona fide winter wonderland — think dazzling light displays (best seen after dark), strolling carolers, organ sing-alongs, fire pits, model train displays, dancing fountains, and much more.

A Longwood Christmas is in full swing and runs through Jan. 8, so be sure to gather together some friends for the 13-mile road trip from Wilmington to Kennett Square. And don't forget to buy tickets ahead of time (they're known to sell out, especially on the weekends).
