We at Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast are so fortunate to be so close to Longwood Gardens in the Brandywine Valley. If you didn’t get to see their magnificent Christmas display you still have time. And they are open until 10 PM on New Year’s eve. There will be strolling musicians, handbell players, a barbershop quartet and much more for you to enjoy. From there you can drive down to Kennett Square, only 4 miles away, for their first ever drop of a lighted 700 pound mushroom at midnight. Don’t forget, Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world. Or if you want to be closer to Hamanassett, drive into Media, Pa. to enjoy their festivities and the ball drop at midnight. Longwood requies timed tickets purchased in advance but if you stay at Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast, you can purchase tickets through us which allow you to go any time. Happy New Year to all!
