Every spring, the South becomes a lush garden just waiting to be explored. In April, Middleton Place’s formal gardens—the oldest formal gardens in America—are alive with the deep colors of rhododendrons and the perfume of magnolias, while the 21 enchanting squares of Savannah showcase multihued azaleas and delicate gardenias. The Burgwin-Wright House in North Carolina was occupied by the British general, Lord Cornwallis, shortly before his defeat at Yorktown. In addition to the house’s historic associations, it has preserved its seven gardens, where the beds and borders have been planted with the same flowers and shrubs as bloomed there in the 18th-century. At Berkeley Plantation in Virginia, visit the site of the first Thanksgiving and explore the mansion’s magnificent collection of 18th-century antiques; then wander through the five terraced gardens that lead from the house down to the James River. Join us for a memorable exploration of some of the loveliest cities, seaports, homes, and gardens of the South during the glorious days of spring.
