Virginia House & Garden Tours
April 18-25, 2015 (statewide)

Each spring visitors are welcomed to over 250 of Virginia's most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during "America's Largest Open House." This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia's springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,000 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.

Tour proceeds fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia's historic gardens, and provide graduate level research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth, and support the mission of the Garden Club of Virginia.

Virginia Beach Garden Tours
April 22, 2015 
Hosted by The Princess Anne Garden Club and The Virginia Beach Garden Club

Beach cottages hold a special attraction for everyone who’s ever enjoyed a vacation on the sand. They evoke memories of sun, fun and relaxing to the rhythms of the sea. A railroad company laid out Virginia Beach’s North End, a narrow three-mile strip that is only 2 blocks wide for much of its length, in the 1880s and sold lots for summer cottages. This tour includes 5 private homes and gardens in the North End, a garden, as well as the new Brock Environmental Center, Virginia’s “greenest” building, and home to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Today’s North Enders, both full-time and part-time, are increasingly interested in preserving the beaches and waterways that drew them here. Tour includes visits to an oyster garden, a bird watching tour at the end of the day at the Brock Environmental Center (space limited) and access to 6 nearby historic properties on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.  Questions? virginiabeach@vagardenweek.org
