Today, board your Starr Tours motorcoach for a day in the Brandywine Valley. Start with a tour of Longwood Gardens, one of the world’s premier horticultural display gardens. When you’re at Longwood Gardens, it’s easy to imagine that you’re in a giant, royal garden in Europe. Built in 1730 by Joshua Peirce, this historic home has been greatly enlarged over the years by successive generations of Pierces and later by Mr. Du Pont, who purchased the property in 1906 and used it as his summer home.
Stroll along the acres of exquisitely maintained grounds featuring 11,000 different types of plants. See the Italian Water Garden, Flower Garden Walk, aquatic display gardens and many others. Amble through Peirce’s Woods, eight outdoor “rooms” of distinct woodland habitats. Each season brings a different pleasure: spring magnolias and azaleas; summer roses and water lilies; fall foliage and chrysanthemums; and winter camellias, orchids and palms. Lunch will also be included today in the Café with your visit to Longwood Gardens.
Next, visit a local area winery for a tour and tasting. Wine tasting season never ends in the beautiful hills of the Brandywine Valley! There are several local wineries in the Brandywine Valley, each with their own areas of expertise and their own specialties.
Tonight, you will enjoy dinner and a show at the Candlelight Theatre in Wilmington, DE. The Candlelight Theatre combines fine dining with superb musical theatre entertainment. It is Delaware’s first dinner theatre. Depart for home following the show. (B,L,D)
