For flower fanatics, the start of April means one thing: Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week! This annual event spans the entire great state of Virginia, and encompasses 48 member clubs and 30 unique tours of spectacular gardens further enhanced by floral arrangements provided by the Garden Club. Options near Centreville include Old Town Alexandria, Middleburg, and McLean, plus more far-flung cities throughout the state from April 17 through April 24. Make a plan to visit one near you, or do a road trip to one of the farther sites like Virginia Beach or Williamsburg if you’ve been looking for a reason to get away.

Each event is priced separately, so find the one that works for your schedule and location of choice, and book one of these relaxing afternoons among the flora and fauna of Virginia’s spectacular private gardens. The website is your best resource for all the planned events, plus helpful policies and considerations for a safe and enjoyable tour.
