LIVE THE HIGH LIFE AT
YOUR NEW LUXURY APARTMENT
While there’s plenty of natural beauty right at home at Thomas Meeting, the apartments near Longwood Gardens allow residents to be minutes from one of the nation’s most renowned botanical centers.
The rental community is just a half-hour from Longwood Gardens, making it a perfect fit for nature lovers of all stripes who can enjoy annual memberships to take in the dazzling displays of flowers, trees, and plants. It’s hard to take in all of the sensational sights at Longwood in just one day (or even several!), so a membership pass for residents of apartments near Longwood Gardens is a smart choice. While Longwood is known for its impressive holiday collection and lights, it is a year-round bustling botanical center, whose exhibits change with the seasons, always offering something new and exciting for visitors.
The property’s rich history as an arboretum dates all the way back to the 1700s. In the 1900s, famed philanthropist William du Pont transformed the former farmhouse and park’s small collection to the award-winning center it is today. Longwood is now comprised of nearly 1,100 acres of indoor and outdoor gardens, wetlands, meadows, and other natural habitats. Visitors can stroll the winding paths to take in rare and exotic flowers, and marvel at the meticulously kept lawns and towering, historic trees. In the spring, the gardens come to eye-popping life with blankets of tulips and, in the winter, the grounds are bedecked in festive lights. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, there’s plenty to see and do inside, with a 4.5-acre conservatory home to more than 4,500 plants and trees.
While the sights at Longwood Gardens are impressive alone, it is also a hub of education. Visitors are encouraged to learn about all of the different collections and take part in workshops, courses, tours, and hands-on activities to deepen their horticultural knowledge. More than 1.5 million people visit the site each year, which has led the area around Longwood Garden to explode with shopping, dining, and entertainment to capture all those guests — just another bonus for those living in apartments near Longwood Gardens!
