A Christmas Wonderland

Longwood Gardens is a premier hortiicultural display whose plants become a wonderous Christmas display of lights through the month of December each year. Some of the fountains and waterfalls are also lighted with seasonal music played every few minutes after 5PM daily.

The Entrance

This building is where tickets are sold for your self guided tour of this garden. There is a store inside with maps and programs. Tickets for adults are $15 and the light show is daily in December 5PM until 9PM.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your nighttime shots since my camera froze! It was such a great way to get in the holiday spirit.

    Looks like a bright and wonderful evening. BTW...why trains at Christmas? My in-laws in Penna. always had them under their tree. Not common in RI. ???
