Christmas at Longwood Gardens
December 2006
Longwood Gardens is an impressive sight all year long. However, during the Christmas season it transforms into something else entirely. Some of the fountains are turned off, but in their place are millions of Christmas lights. You definately want to be there both before and after nightfall.
