This U.S. Garden Was Just Named the Most Beautiful in the World



Sometimes, you need to stop and smell the roses. Other times, you need to stop and smell the lilies, hydrangeas, tulips, and peonies, too. And that’s where some of the world’s most gorgeous gardens come in — including the No. 1 most beautiful, which happens to reside in the United States.  

In June, Titan Travel released its study researching the world’s prettiest flower gardens. To find out which gardens are the most beautiful to visitors, the team searched social media platforms, including TikTok and Instagram, along with review sites like Tripadvisor, and utilized Google search data to see what people are looking for across the globe, normalizing an average score for each garden between one to 10.

After checking out all that information, the team named Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania the prettiest, with a score of 6.86.

“Sitting just outside of Philadelphia, Longwood Gardens is an accessible source of beauty, with over 10,000 species and varieties of plants to explore,” the team wrote about the botanical garden with more than 1,000 acres to roam. “Guests can explore the lush, formal gardens, open meadows, and winding paths to breathtaking Brandywine Valley vistas.” 

The researchers also noted the garden has a five-star review rating on Tripadvisor, where 19 percent of visitors use the word “beautiful” in their reviews. “The winning gardens also had among the highest volumes of posts on social media (307,185 Instagram posts and 6,096 TikTok tag mentions), as well as a 22.2 percent increase in searches over the last two years,” it added. 

Following Longwood is Shinjuku Gyo-en in Tokyo at the No. 2 spot with a score of 6.83. “Visitors love to share snapshots of the beautiful scenes, with 713,595 posts on Instagram and 4,550 TikTok tags — showing off the cherry blossoms in spring and the fields that turn into sprawling sheets of silk in the winter,” the researchers added about the urban oasis. 

Joining these two stunning spots at the top of the list is Pukekura Park in New Plymouth, New Zealand in third, followed by Kenroku-en, Kanazawa in Japan, Volksgarten in Vienna, Austria, Dubai Miracle Garden in Dubai, Singapore Botanic Gardens in Singapore, Mirabell Palace in Salzburg, Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York City, rounding out the top 10. Though really, wherever there are fresh blooms sounds beautiful to us.
