Half a Million Twinkling Lights Make Longwood Gardens Sparkle at Christmas

Longwood Gardens is a beautiful sight at any time of the year, but it is especially breathtaking at Christmas time. Twinkling lights as far as the eye can see, fountains dancing to holiday tunes and a family carol sing-a-long. This is a must-do holiday season activity for the whole family.
