Jersey Shore at Longwood Gardens

  • 10:30 AM
Join us at one of the world’s great gardens– a living expression of all that the founder, Pierre S. du Pont found inspiring, meaningful and beautiful. From the intricate fountain systems to the meticulous gardens to the architectural grandeur, there are awe-inspiring discoveries everywhere! “Spring Blooms” will be featured on 4/24—one of the most glorious times of year to be at Longwood.
 (Please note that all must wear masks.)
The plan will be for us to meet at the WAWA parking lot on 537 in Jackson (near Great Adventure) at 10:30 AM for an 11:00 departure. We will caravan the 90 minutes to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and tour the Gardens at our own pace for 2 1/2 hours. We will then meet back in the parking lot between 3:15 and 3:30. The next stop will be an early dinner at the lovely Portabellos restaurant less than 15 minutes away. Did you know that Kennett Square is the “Mushroom Capital of the World”?! 500 million pounds of mushrooms are grown here annually totaling HALF the US mushroom crop. So of course we’d eat at a restaurant called Portabellos!
So here’s what I need you to do! If you’d like to join us, please email me at NLT Thursday, March 25th. I realize that’s only a few days away, but Longwood is currently only operating at 35% capacity AND tickets need to be purchased in advance. Group ticket rates are listed below. When you email me— let me know how many people/which tickets you will need based on age/and whether or not you will be joining us for dinner. I’m asking please for you to then mail me a check made out to JSRPCA for the full ticket amount: Dawn Schneider, 432 Stagecoach Rd, Clarksburg NJ 08510. Any questions—please reach out to me via email or phone (908-803-0316). Again, we have a very short turnaround time.
Join us for a beautiful day!!
