Garden Lovers Delight

May 12 - 16, 2020


Nothing can lift your spirits faster than spending time in nature. When the beauty of nature is as concentrated and accessible as it is in formal gardens, you can count on a wonderful travel experience. Amazingly intricate plantings, vibrant colors and a springtime tapestry of shapes and textures make you feel as if you have stepped into

nature’s most exalted art museum. If you love   gardens, this is your tour.


We start with an easy drive to Richmond, arriving in time to see the award-winning Lewis Ginter   Botanical Garden. That afternoon we’ll take in nearby Winterthur  Museum, Gardens and Library and Henry du Pont’s magnificent 175-room home, a premier museum of American decorative arts.  The next morning, we’re off to Pennsylvania to visit the spectacular Longwood Gardens. We’ll  have the entire day to explore beautiful Longwood Gardens and nearby historic Kennett Square. 


On our way home, we’ll stop and stretch our legs at the National Botanical Gardens across from the Capitol Building in DC. Our final garden highlight is the amazing rose bank at Duke University Gardens. A beautiful tour from start to finish!
