HOLIDAY SPARKLE AT LONGWOOD AND WINTERTHUR
Revel in the spirit of the season as we visit two beloved holiday destinations in the Brandywine Valley. You’ll spend the afternoon at Winterthur, H.F. Dupont’s magnificent Delaware mansion, where you’ll move at your own pace through rooms lavishly decked out for the holidays and visit the galleries devoted to decorative objects, including a special exhibit on the collaboration between the young First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and octogenarian Dupont that transformed the White House interior. Then, after a short bus ride to Longwood Gardens, you’ll immerse yourself in the decorated trees, poinsettias, and fragrant flowers in the grand Conservatory. Outside, the evening gardens will dazzle you with a half-million lights and lighted fountains. Warm up if you wish at a cozy fire pit, and eat dinner when you choose, in one of Longwood’s tented eateries. You’ll have a $20 voucher to apply to the meal. Remember to check the weather and dress appropriately for the evening garden stroll.
Cost includes transportation, entrance fees, snacks, a voucher toward dinner, and tips.
