Philadelphia Flower Show
Feb 28 - March 3, 2015

with Longwood Gardens and Winterthur Museum

Get ready to plan your garden for next year! Join Huron Tours on our 15th tour to the City of Brotherly Love and the world’s oldest and largest indoor flower show.

While in Philadelphia we will take the opportunity to visit one of America’s most important horticultural showplaces Longwood Gardens, enjoy a private escorted Philadelphia city tour, and experience the main event, the famous Philadelphia Flower Show.

We also include a visit to the world renowned Winterthur Museum as part of our day exploring the Brandywine Valley.

A brief itinerary of your tour follows.

Saturday, February 28 ~

Arrival in Philadelphia and time to explore before our included welcome dinner

Depart your city and arrive in Philadelphia early afternoon and make your way to the perfectly located Philadelphia Marriott Downtown (connected to the flower show location!) Why not explore the near-by Reading market, a fabulous indoor marketplace with all varieties of shops, food and restaurants? Later, join your tour escorts and fellow travelers for a nice glass of wine and welcome dinner at a great restaurant steps from our hotel. D

Sunday, March 1 ~

Visit Brandywine Valley including Longwood Gardens and Winterthur Museum

Today we visit Delaware’s Brandywine Valley, home of renowned museums made famous by the legacy of the du Ponts. Our private motorcoach's first stop will be the incredible and much-admired Longwood Gardens, once the private estate of Pierre S. du Pont and regarded as one of the world’s greatest gardens. With more than four acres of breathtaking indoor conservatories, you will enjoy the seasonal floral displays and lush tropical plants that grow year-round.

Afterward, we’ll visit Winterthur Museum and Gardens, once the home of Henry Francis du Pont. Today Winterthur is a nine-story building filled with more than 90,000 American decorative art objects. Our visit will include a guided tour of the house, a garden tram ride and entry to the galleries. You will also have plenty of time to browse the wonderful Winterthur Museum Stores.

Monday, March 2 ~

The Philadelphia Flower Show

Just a short walk away is the Philadelphia Flower Show, and you have the entire day to enjoy all that this well-respected show has to offer. You will quickly understand why this is America's premier flower event, with some even daring to say that it is better than England's Chelsea Flower Show (if you've never been to Chelsea the Philly show is a nice substitute, but we don't agree that it's better!). This year’s theme, while still being refined, will be based on "the magic of the movies" and is sure to dazzle you. Don’t miss the fabulous market place with over 150 vendors. Foodies will love the International Wine and Spirits Garden and the International Dessert and Coffee Bar. The more studious gardeners will want to take advantage of the many lectures and workshops taking place throughout the day. Feel free to leave and return as often as you wish.

Excellent Addition:
We include the ‘Flower Show V.I.P.’ package that includes: An early morning private tour of the exhibits with behind-the-scene stories (great photograph opportunity), a flower arranging demonstration by award winning floral designers, 10% off purchases at the Flower Show Shoppe, a free gift bag, and all day access to the private members lounge at the Show!

Tuesday, March 3 ~

Private Philadelphia City Tour and Departure

We begin the day with a leisurely and enjoyable private city tour of the historic and modern element of Philadelphia. Enjoy stops at the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, and if you feel up for it, take a quick run up the steps at the Art Museum (famous from the movie 'Rocky.') You will gain new appreciation for our founding fathers, and our Nation's history, as you explore Philadelphia's fascinating past through its streets of stunning and diverse architecture.

Following our tour, enjoy a very special farewell lunch at the historic City Tavern restaurant which has celebrated more than 230 years of hospitality and features ales, breads and entrees from historically accurate recipes. Our motorcoach returns us to the airport for our evening flights home with new friends and wonderful memories from another fabulous Huron Tours & Travel excursion.
