The Splashiest Summer Getaway

Escape the everyday here at Longwood, where the most beautiful, most peaceful, most enthralling summer getaway awaits.

Stroll through our gardens awash in brilliantly blooming annuals and perennials, or find a quiet, shaded spot among our towering trees to our serene woodland paths. Looking to make a splash? Head to our spectacular Main Fountain Garden, where fountains spin and soar during our daily fountain performances, giving “refreshing” a whole new meaning.

Find a starlit getaway Thursday through Saturday evenings with our unforgettable Illuminated Fountain Performances, as water of all shapes, sizes, and colors dances along to music in our Main Fountain Garden. A deliciously fun getaway beckons in our Beer Garden, where live instrumental music from traditional Celtic tunes to Caribbean steel pan grooves sets the tone Thursday through Saturday evenings.

From vibrant summer blooms to dancing fountains, everything but the everyday is here. Make your summer getaway with us.
