The Secret Garden In New York You’re Guaranteed To Love
New York may not be able to make up its mind over what season its in, but enough of us have gotten a taste of warmer temperatures that we’re ready to start plotting out our next big adventure. If you’re looking to take a day trip that will completely relax you and surround you with a variety of scenic settings, then it’s time you make your way to this one garden that you’re guaranteed to love.
Sitting right at the northern end of Canandaigua Lake is a historic property that's dripping in beauty.
Opening up to the public for the first time in 1973, Sonnenberg Gardens was once the summer home of the Thompson family.
Now the 50-acre property is part of the New York State Parks System and is only one of two public gardens that we have.
The perfect place to take a stroll or enjoy a picnic in the shade, your jaw will drop over the Alice in Wonderland style landscapes.
One of the only Country Place Era Estates that you'll find left standing in our country, visitors have the opportunity to take guided tours of the estate depending on the weather!
From peaceful ponds to roses and orchids to cacti, you'll be able to see a stunning array of fairytale-worthy sights.
The variety of gardens is just one of the many reasons why visitors love to come and relax at Sonnenberg.
Whether you prefer to spend your time soaking in the details that make up the Old-Fashioned Garden or enjoy the exotic landscapes that are featured in the Japanese Garden, there's something for everyone to fall in love with.
A little piece of heaven right in the Finger Lakes, Sonnenberg Gardens is more than worth a visit.
