  • Love love love this garden. I have been coming here with my family since 2005 and it never gets old. The gardens are gorgeous and maintained well. The best part about this place however apart from the incredibly diverse plants and flora, consistently amazing food at the restaurant (especially the mushroom soup), world class conservatory, fountains, and decorations, is its dynamism. It is one of the few places that is worth getting an annual membership for because every season, almost all the flowers, plants, trees, decorations, etc are switched or replaced, curating a completely different and unique experience each time you come. 100% recommend this place to anyone and always look forward to coming back
  • One of my favorite places in Pennsylvania. There is so much to see and do here. The entire thing is absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. There are usually events and other things going on. I love going multiple times a year. The shop is also really cool. I highly recommend visiting any time of year. It's totally worth it.
