The Greater Philadelphia Area is rich in public gardens, arboreta and historic houses with gardens. Each garden has unique offerings and special collections. Some gardens offer tours, classes, or workshops. There is a central site, Greater Philadelphia Gardens
, which links to more than 30 gardens in the region. Tickets to any of these special gardens coupled with a B&B Connection Gift Certificate
would make a thoughtful present for your garden lover.
A favorite, Longwood Gardens
, is the world's premier horticultural display garden. Nearby are a few charming, classic B&Bs including the Chadds Ford B&B
and the Federal Victorian Mansion
. The Main Line Victorian
is a short drive away and also near Chanticleer and Jenkins Arboretum. Morris Arboretum
, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Most of the Chestnut Hill Area accommodations
on our website are conveniently located near the Morris Arboretum.
Tickets to the Philadelphia Flower Show
would also make a wonderful gift for the garden lover! This exhibition, from March 2-10, 2013, is held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Any of the Center City accommodations
on our website are located near the Convention Center.
