Visit This Daffodil Garden In Rhode Island For That Beautiful Scenic Experience You Crave
The Blithewold Mansion has been a Rhode Island icon since the late 1800s. Once the home of a prominent family, the estate is now used as an arboretum with beautiful gardens. And every spring, the daffodils in bloom make it look absolutely magical.
The Blithewold Mansion is located in Bristol, at 101 Ferry Road.
The estate has been kept in excellent condition, and it shows.
The original owners, Augustus and Bessie Van Wickle, requested both native and exotic trees and plants when they were designing the property.
These days, there's an entire horticultural staff maintaining it.
This is definitely the perfect time to visit the gardens here, as you'll find about 50,000 daffodils in bloom.
And it looks as beautiful as you'd imagine.
There are over 13 different types of daffodils on the property.
And since they all bloom at different times, the visual effects are stunning.
Come see why Blithewold was listed in Yankee Magazine's Best 5 Public Gardens in New England in 2010.
You can visit daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The daffodils just happen to be in peak bloom right now, so visit as soon as you can.
For $15 ($6 for children) you can go on a self-guided tour of the two-story mansion and explore the gardens and ground for as long as you'd like.
