4 out of 5 stars

This picture-perfect botanical garden in Kennett Square features a whopping 11,000 different types of plants spread out in a mix of thoughtful displays throughout the 1,000-acre grounds. Besides all the green things, standout attractions here include a collection of five fountains that light up and dance in timed performances throughout the day, the Italian Water Garden, and the 86-acre Meadow Garden that in itself includes three miles of walking and hiking trails through fields of wildflowers and, if you're lucky, the occasional wildlife sighting, which could include anything from the common butterfly and bee to beavers and deer.
