Longwood Gardens is a tradition with my mother. It is absolutely stunningly beautiful anytime of the year. My mother used a complimentary wheelchair which was her first time using one. LG is completely wheelchair friendly. It's a fantastic place to bring someone who is generally housebound as you can be out in nature in wheelchair accommodating environment. We had a wonderful leisurely lunch in the restaurant which started our visit off perfectly. The rest of our visit was awe inspiring as it always is.
This place is absolutely beautiful. We have the season pass because it’s so nice to just be able to walk around and look at all the beautiful gardens. It’s a very calming place and makes you wish your own gardens could look as nice. If you’ve never been, you definitely have to go because there’s nothing else like it.
