Kennett Square, Pennsylvania: Longwood Gardens
You don't have to be a garden lover to enjoy Longwood Gardens, probably the most interesting of the facilities of this type that I have visited. The AAA Guide describes it as "the country estate of Pierre S. du Pont," and he obviously knew what to do with his money. There are all sorts of fountains, gardens, lakes, etc. here. The picture above came out in particularly vivid fashion, but I could have selected several others.
Be sure to check out the schedule for the fountain show; Las Vegas would be proud of it (an odd compliment, but appropriate).
