Trip Report Springtime in Paris-Philly Flower Show Trip

Jump to last reply

A local garden store sponsored a one-day bus trip from Annapolis Md area to the Philadelphia Flower Show. $75 included entrance tickets and a snack bag. Members of the store's garden club paid less. I have been trying to go to this for years and finally am able to do it.

The two busses left at 10 a.m. and arrived at around noon. The show was held in the convention center and the downtown traffic there was heavy but not at a standstill. The beauty of a bus trip is getting let off at the door. A luxury for older folks whose walking might be slower. On the other hand, the convention center is HUGE and it was a long walk to the show's various rooms. Wear good walking shoes!

This year's Parisian theme was beautiful. In the main entrance, floral animals and pink-blossomed trees lead one to a copy of the bottom section of the Eiffel Tower. Not to scale but huge enough for crowds to walk under, and with lights that twinkled every hour.

After the tower, a merry go round with floral animals. All around are Parisian-inspired vignettes which I will try to describe.
