Favorite thing: I went to Longwood Gardens with my sister and my nephew and spent the day exploring the massive complex. It's a great day for anyone interested in gardening, but if you're like me and you don't know a tulip from a begonia, you'll still enjoy spending the day wandering among the beautifully landscaped grounds exploring hidden corners, spectacular topiaries, bursting colors and leaping fountains of water.
Favorite thing: See Longwood Gardens, a world-renowned site with acres and acres of different gardens, with fountains, ponds, Italianate towers, and more. A legacy of the Duponts. Don't miss the rainforest area--or the orchids!
