Today is the last day to purchase half-off tickets to Logwood Gardens on Groupon.
The justly famous Longwood Gardens have something to enjoy in all seasons and weather. There are extravagant European-style fountains, a picturesque 600-foot garden walk, and 40 indoor and outdoor gardens. Inviting paths tempt visitors to meander through the property’s 1,077 colorful acres, where they run into everything from flowering trees and delicate hybrids to carnivorous pitcher plants and an 86-acre Meadow Garden.
Admire the gushing waters at the Festival of Fountains (through Sept. 1); stroll through the beautiful gardens during the Autumn’s Colors event (Sept. 6–Nov. 23). Discover new layers of beauty in the new 86-acre Meadow Garden with three miles of walking and hiking trails, ever-changing colors with native wildflower plantings, the historic Webb Farmhouse & Galleries, and more.
