    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).

    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.

    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.
