Thursday, June 21—Sunday, June 24,2018
Pettengill Farm is once again offering its many customers an opportunity to see one of the world’s most amazing gardens on this latest tour focusing on Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. The excitement is—after two plus years of construction—the over 500 gorgeous fountains re-opened in 2016. For those folks who traveled four years ago to Longwood and Brandywine, we have incorporated new venues to visit making this a brand new itinerary that is simply fabulous.

We will begin our journey by departing Pettengill Farm at 8:00 am on Thursday, June 21st, traveling to Kennett Square, PA and our hotel, the Fairfield Inn. Dinner tonight will be at one of the wonderful restaurants in Kennett Square—famous for it’s mushroom farming. We hope to have a speaker who can talk about the history of mushrooms in this area. Friday morning, June 22nd, has us visiting the star of the tour Longwood Gardens right in Kennett Square. We will arrive there and won’t return to the hotel until after the fountain show which begins at 9:15 pm. You will have a Dining Dollar Card that you can use for your lunch, dinner or cocktails in any of the three restaurants at Longwood. Enjoy the fantastic fountain show—these fountains have been totally reconstructed at the cost of some $50 million and are said to be the best in the world. On Saturday, June 23rd we’ll be heading to Monkton, Maryland, a one hour drive, to visit Ladew Topiary Garden. It’s fantastic! Wait until you see how they are able to create statues, animals and much more doing incredible work with topiary. Also there are many beautiful gardens that will be perfection late in June. Luncheon will be included at Ladew. But this day isn’t finished yet. We’ll travel north of Wilmington, DE to the Candlelight Dinner Theatre where we will see a performance of BOEING! BOEING! The evening starts with a delicious buffet which is beautifully presented and very ample. Service is by the actors who are terrific. This is a play guaranteed to give you lots of laughs. Fasten your seat belts for a riotous farce and a perfect way to end this wonderful day. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, but not this tour! We’ll depart the Fairfield Inn and Kennett Square on Sunday, June 24th by 9:00 am, but before we “hit the road”, we’ll be making a stop at Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, Pennsylvania. This is a renowned garden, famous for its beauty and interesting plantings. Quite a different stop from the other fabulous gardens you have already visited. Then at Noon we’ll start home with a dinner stop, arriving at Pettengill Farm in Salisbury by (hopefully) 8:30 pm. This will be a tour to remember for a long time to come. Thank you for the pleasure of joining Pettengill Farm for this journey.

Deposit: $200.00 Per Person: We will accept bookings right up to date of departure, if there is space available. Early booking is definitely recommended

Cost Per Person: Double $699.00 (2 to a room), Triple $679.00 (3 to a room) and Single $899.00 (1 to a room)
