The result? Our listing of the Most Romantic Gardens in the U.S.
From the Shakespeare garden in New York City to the Ladew Topiary Gardens in Maryland, find out where romance is blooming near you — for Valentine’s Day and year-round.
3 Highlights of Romantic Gardens
The Most Romantic Gardens in the U.S. are:
Beautiful Outside and Indoors: Flowers need rain to blossom, but you and your best bud may not want to get soaked while taking in the atmosphere. Pennsylvania’s Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and other gardens we chose have greenhouses to enjoy on those less-than-perfect days.
Mystical, Not Massive: Some of the most beguiling gardens are smaller and less popular. New Jersey’s Frelinghuysen Arboretum and many of the other gardens we chose offer a sense of intimacy for you and your beau. So once you’ve found a place you two can cherish, mums the word.
Picture Perfect: Whether you’re looking for a place to wed, propose, or for that first date, you want a setting that is a perfect backdrop for memorable photos. For example, New Hampshire’s Fullerton Gardens has flowers, trees, and privacy — all paramount for Instagram photos you two will want to share.
