Longwood Gardens

Spring NOW

For the Philadelphia area, this winter started early and has been one of snowiest on record! Couldn't you use a little spring now? I sure could. We are so fortunate to have in our area some fantastic indoor gardens where we can escape the winter doldrums.

Longwood and its fabulous conservatory is the first that comes to mind. In the Conservatory there are a variety of sections —The Orangery, the Indoor Children's Garden, the Banana House, the Tropical Terrace, the Palm House — just to name a few.

On a opposite end of the scale, Morris Arboretum has a small toasty warm fernery to visit. It is the only remaining freestanding Victorian fernery in North America.

The Philadelphia Zoo offers a different type of spring escape: The McNeil Avian Center. Visitors are immersed in exotic landscapes full of color and sound, with over 100 spectacular birds from around the world, many of them rare and endangered. The exhibition features an African plain, Pacific Islands, and Tropical Rainforest. So… why not escape the winter right here!
