Have you voted for Longwood Gardens today?

What does the New York Botanical Garden have that Longwood Gardens lacks? Perhaps its surrounding neighbors.

The New York site’s 250 acres lie within the Bronx, one of the nation’s densest, greenery-starved locales. How else to explain the fact that the New York attraction keeps grabbing the lead from Longwood in the 2016 USA Today Readers’ Choice Travel Awards?

Certainly, it’s not a question of acreage: At 1,077, Longwood boasts more than four times the display space. So it may come down to numbers – and regional pride.

Longwood officials are hoping that area fans will help keep them at the top of the list of the best 20 botanical gardens in the country. So if you don’t want to see P.S. du Pont’s elegant legacy eclipsed by the Big Apple, click here.

Members of the public can vote once a day between now and noon on Monday, March 28. Time is running out to make your votes count and enhance the region’s bragging rights.

Longwood Gardens, the former estate of industrialist Pierre S. du Pont on Route 1 near Kennett Square, is open daily, including holidays. Admission is $20 for adults; $17 for seniors (age 62 and over); $10 for students (ages 5 to18 or with valid student ID) and free for children 4 and under. Group rates are available.
