If you enjoy snazzy places, beautiful settings and fancy occasions, what better way to indulge your tastes than with a classy date? And while traditions would tell you this is best done through champagne and diamonds, we say there are more creative alternatives.
For a change in the date routine, take a visit to Brookside Gardens in Maryland. This 50-acre area of Wheaton Regional Park has over ten different varieties of gardens and absolutely lovely landscaping. Whether you’re strolling along the ponds at the Japanese Style Garden or perched under the gazebo overlooking the Aquatic Garden, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in the lap of horticultural luxury. Think it’s too cold for flowers? Think again; Brookside has two conservatories that are in bloom year-round, one for tropical plants and the other for seasonal plants. Stop and smell the roses!
