New Homes in Delaware Afford Year-Round Beauty and Culture

Delaware living: culture and fun on your doorstep

For such a tiny gem of a state, Delaware is certainly packed tight with beauty, history, culture, fun places to go and cool things to do virtually every single day of the year. But then, Delaware has the lofty distinction of being America’s first state,  so why shouldn’t it also be one of its most active and exciting too?

Longwood Gardens: a year-round wonderland

One of the most sensational attractions in the Brandywine Valley of southern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware is world-famous Longwood Gardens, a thousand acre wonderland of meticulous gardens, meadows, and woods perfect for the most discerning nature lover.

Longwood Gardens, right in historic Kennett Square, is less than fifteen minutes away from Darley Green, the delightful master-planned community of new townhomes in Delaware, and a go-to mainstay of Darley Green owners for world-class nature, dance, music, and education 365 days a year.

The current attraction at Longwood Gardens is its Orchid Extravaganza running from January 25th to March 30th. If you’re an orchid aficionado, then what better place to spend a day than in Longwood’s lush four-acre Conservatory surrounded by the majesty of thousands of orchids. Whether in hanging baskets or in artful arrangements or even the truly spectacular orchid chandelier hanging in Exhibition Hall, these living works of art are one of the hallmark delights of Longwood Gardens.

As the Longwood Gardens website aptly puts it, “Orchids are the rock stars of the plant world”.

For visiting families, how about OrKids Days where youngsters can learn about orchids at discovery stations or go on a Winter Wonders Scavenger Hunt? This year’s Orchid Extravaganza features Longwood Garden’s full collection of 7,500 orchids, both common and rare, and unlike any other orchid collection in the world.

New homes at Darley Green are in the middle of a world of culture

Longwood Gardens is not just about orchids, however. It’s a yearlong celebration of arts and culture with something for everyone.

It’s the Jazz Series in April with Grammy winners New York Voices or the Wine & Jazz Festival in June with Dee Dee Bridgewater and the Delfaeyo Marsalis Quintet. The World of Music Series brings the splendid Cherish The Ladies collective, the 2014 Philadelphia Flamenco Festival, the Max Raabe & Palast Orchester, and the Brazilian guitar virtuosos, the Assad Family to Longwood Gardens. The Classical Series with Vadym Kholodenko, the Van Cliburn gold medalist, and the renowned pianist, Andre Watts, visit this spring.

Longwood Gardens is a living, breathing classroom experience as well. Continuing education programs, K-12 programs with summer camps and Scout programs, college Internship programs and international internship and training programs are solid preparation for careers in horticulture.
