Lights Explode at Longwood Gardens this Christmas

 In Holidays


This week I waxed on about Longwood Gardens and why it is an amazing place to check out during the day with toddlers. We were not able to stay for the nighttime lights, but I wanted to give you a peek at what would be in store if you made it down in the evening hours.

Happy holidays everyone!
