Must see cool parks & hot gardens!

For those of you planning a trip to the east coast, be sure to visit Valley Forge National Park and Gettysburg National Military Park.

They're part of the National Park Service, US Dept of the Interior and are must-sees for the beauty and  historical preservation of our American heritage.

It's amazing to walk trails and fields over acres of land and woodlands, tour 18th and 19th century buildings and linger over artifacts from our past. And enjoy the beauty of nature.

If you love visiting spectacular gardens, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square PA is worth the visit.

Beside world-class gardens, ponds, fountains and fireworks, be sure to view the amazing light installations by Bruce Munro that are mingled throughout the acres of woodlands, fields, and in the conservatory. 

But hurry- the light installation runs until September 29th. Well worth the visit!

Share your favorite gardens and parks! And enjoy your summer!
