Another exciting trip is planned for 2020. We will spend two nights in Virginia Beach at the Spring Hill Suites located directly on the beach

perfect setting for an early morning wake-up call to watch the sun rise. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/orfvo-springhill-suites-virginia-beach-oceanfront/   We will visit private gardens in Virginia Beach area and take a guided tour of the Norfolk BotanicalGarden https://norfolkbotanicalgarden.org

The second half of our trip will be in Raleigh, NC.   We will be staying at the Sheridan Raleigh Hotel, convenient for dining at night. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/rdusi-sheraton-raleigh-hotel/ In Raleigh we will visit some beautiful private gardens and visit two public gardens, the JC Raulston Arboretum https://jcra.ncsu.edu//  and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens https://gardens.duke.edu

A trip wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t go shopping and we will have two opportunities for that—Big Bloomers Flower Farm http://www.bigbloomersflowerfarm.com and Plant Delights https://www.plantdelights.com.

The cost of this trip is $850.00 per person shared accommodations; $1215.00 per person single accommodations.  Cost of the trips includes motor coach transportation and bus driver's gratuity, four nights accommodations including breakfasts, all lunches, admission and tours at Norfolk Botanical Gardens, JC Raulston Arboretum and Sarah P Duke Gardens, first night social, rental of personal listening devices and miscellaneous expenses.
