Virginia is for (garden) lovers
Before we head into the holiday madness that is fast approaching, why not spend some time this weekend visiting one of the wonderful public gardens in the area?
There are public gardens to inspire and delight you, no matter what your image of the perfect outdoor paradise entails. Plantations, deep forests, flora, and fauna will greet you on the garden paths of these wonderful Metro Area gardens.
Virginia Gardens - Visit the nation's oldest gardens right here in Virginia! From the most historic Berkeley Plantation to the spectacular displays at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and George Washington's Mount Vernon, Virginia's gardens are breathtaking and inspiring.
Maryland Public Gardens - Visit Maryland’s public gardens and discover hidden gems of the Free State. The gardens feature topiary, sculpture and colonial gardens, large and small cultivated pockets of horticultural delights, as well as forests and meadows celebrating Maryland’s native flora.
District of Columbia Public Gardens and Garden Walks - The U.S. Botanic Garden, the National Arboretum and others give you plenty of choices for getting outside and enjoying our beautiful fall weather.
