Indoor Children’s Garden at Longwood Gardens

There’s an understandable “Observe in awe, but do not touch” edict at this immaculate Kennett Square destination. Except, that is, in the Indoor Children’s Garden, where wee ones are encouraged to splash in the jumping fountains, get up-close and personal with the whimsical statues, climb through the twisty displays and smell the roses. (That it’s tucked away inside the Conservatory means it’s a great foul-weather destination, too.)
