This was a wonderful program! We covered a lot of territory. Got to see some museums that I hadn't been to before. The flower show was wonderful and Longwood Gardens was fantastic.

i thoroughlty enjoyed my time in Philadelphia. The people were friendly and interesting, the Barnes and Art Museum were wonderful, Longwood and Winturthur spectacular, and the Flower Show a welcome breath of spring. Despite the cold and wintry air, I feel refreshed and look forward to another Road Scholar trip.

Being able to get into the Philadelphia Flower Show before the general public was a highlight of this trip to us. We had a docent led tour for 2 hours. We saw most of the highlights with her. Seeing the new Barnes Foundation was also a highlight.
