The Secret Garden In Maryland You’re Guaranteed To Love
The recent wacky weather has most Marylanders craving springtime. As the cold air leaves for the season, we can’t help but envision getting outdoors and enjoying nature. If you’re a fan of gardens, you may want to check out the following spot. It’s little known, but absolutely enchanting. Start spring on the right foot with a trip to one of Maryland’s most beautiful gardens.
Along the South River, you'll find historic London Town & Gardens. This spot pays tribute to one of Maryland's first colonial towns, dating back to the 1600s.
Come learn about life and traditions from centuries ago, including musket firing demonstrations. This is a history lovers haven.
What many people don't know is that Historic London Town is also home to picturesque gardens. Spring and summer promises dreamy cherry trees...
And perfectly purple tulips.
See what colonists grew for consumption at the charming Kitchen Garden.
The Ornamental Gardens feature daylilies, roses, and more. The gazebo is the perfect spot to stop and take in the views.
Explore winding staircases among plush greenery and pops of color...
And end up at the water's edge, as the breeze enhances the scent of surrounding flowers.
It's worth keeping in mind that December just may be the most magical time to visit. Illuminated London Town is an event where the gardens are illuminated by luminaries...
And twinkling lights. It's a surreal sight to see, and cider and s'mores are also included to keep you warm and toasty.
This spot may be underrated but its natural beauty deserves a spot on your must-visit list. Bring the whole family.
