Goodbye and good riddance 2020 and welcome 2021! It may be cold outside but there are plenty of indoor attractions open in the Brandywine Valley.
Longwood Gardens is extending its “A Longwood Christmas” through January 17, 2021. After that you still have the amazing conservatory to walk through that will transport you to a tropical paradise. Check their website to learn what is going on now.
Another change for this winter is that Winterthur is staying open in January and February. During these two months they are offering Weekend House Tours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11-2 PM. You’ll see the entertaining spaces where the du Ponts’ own friends and family were invited in the 1930s and 1940s. Reservations are required so that they can maintain safe social distancing. They are also offering garden walks and birding tours. Have a sled and no safe place for sledding? Winterthur offers Sledding Sundays in January and February from 11-2 in a designated safe sledding zone. Check snow conditions and for other information here.
Now all you have to do is select your favorite room at Hamanassett and you are all set. We are offering a Winter Special through April 15, 2021. Stay with us any 3 nights that includes a Tuesday and Tuesday night is absolutely free.
