Our holiday bus trip takes us to Longwood Gardens!Christmas Trees Re-Imagined” This year, Longwood pays homage to the Christmas tree with an imaginative display featuring traditional favorites and inspiring new twists. Festive firs suspended from above, towering tannenbaums created from books, stained glass, and other unexpected materials. Explore the famous Conservatory adorned with decorated trees and poinsettias, stroll the Outdoor Gardens and see colorful lights, hundreds of sparkling snowflakes, twinkling tree forms, and a 12-foot fountain of lights in the Main Fountain Garden.

We arrive at Longwood Gardens at approximately 1:30 p.m. For a restroom break and group orientation. Please dress for the outdoors and wear comfortable shoes. Longwood Gardens is a rain or shine, indoor and outdoor experience. Walking is required and no shuttle inside the Gardens is available.

There are three options for dining: THE CAFÉ offers an ever-changing selection of fresh local salads, soups, sandwiches, three hot entrees, pizza, burgers, pastries and more; the restaurant 1906 is a full dining experience and you must make reservations; and the Beer Garden if you choose to dine alfresco.
