Great time & a lot to see. Make sure U give Urself at least 4+ hours to see it all. When they have the fireworks show I would highly recommend n it'll be the best show U'll ever see. Well worth the $$
Beautiful gardens... My favorite are the water lilies, orchids, butterfly plants, & pond gardens near the gazebo & castle tower. But watch out for lots of poison ivy near wooded paths (see photo).
This is good for photographers, artists etc. The flowers are gorgeous, and the children's garden is perfect interaction. This place is gorgeous in all seasons, and open for all. Love. MUST GO!
Such a lovely way to ignite the Christmas spirit, beautiful scenery, amazing horticulture and indoor flower displays as well as lights and a musical, water fountain show to top it all off!
Wander through twinkling lights, poinsettias and Christmas trees at Longwood's annual Christmas display. Beautifully lit fountains dance in a starry wonderland, and concerts are presented daily.
The grounds are breathtaking, but if you have time, stay for the fireworks. Other than Disney World, this is the BEST fireworks display I've ever seen. Dinner at The Terrace Restaurant was a yummy e
Dramatically beautiful and impeccably staged conservatory. The rigors of design are rewarding with epic views all around . Look up, look up! Even the glass topped conservatory has flora and fauna
Everything here is beautiful! The cafe food is yummy, the grounds are amazing. Orchids and water lilies are my faves. Definitely go for Christmas. The lights are beautiful!
I wasn't really impressed by the tree houses, but the kids loved them. Main fountain display is closed until 2017. Conservatory was uniformly fantastic.

Fantastic mushroom soup in cafe. Bring a change of clothes for the kids after playing in the indoor children's garden. They do hand out towels now too.
Great place for kids. 3 tree houses. Indoor children's garden with water play. Grab scavenger hunt cards while you're in there. Outdoor train display in winter.
Do not miss the Italian water garden if you're there in the summer. It's a hidden gem on the outskirts of the property buy its well worth the visit.

A great place to unplug and admire true beauty. It's lovely. Only $10 for students.
Beautiful. I visit Delaware family from NYC and we drive into PA 30 minutes to see Christmas lights. Lots of walking but serene
If you have kids, bring some slices of bread for the fish in the ponds. You won't regret it.
Today, we understand the importance of environmental conservation. That wasn't so common in 1906, when Pierre du Pont purchased this land to preserve the trees.
If you have bad allergies the conservatory may not be the most ideal place for you regardless of the beauty.
The Italian Water Garden is stunning and the flowers are absolutely beautiful!
Beautiful! Very pretty around Christmas and a great place to watch 4th of July fireworks
I went for the Orchid season, it was cold and not much life outside but inside was spectacular ! I would go again in an instant.
Spring is beautiful, but the Christmas greenhouses and light displays are not to be missed.
Be sure to check out the Bruce Munro exhibit going on now. It was really amazing!
I'm 110% enchanted with this place. I will visit over and over again.
They have the most beautiful flower show every Spring. If in town check it out
