A Very Tranquil Place

One of the many things to do in the area during your stay at the Webster House is to visit Dow Gardens in Midland.  While one might think of it as a place to go in the spring, summer or fall, it is a year-round garden.   The plant life in the Conservatory was as beautiful and interesting as the many butterflies that inhabited the exhibit.  On the walk to the Conservatory, we enjoyed such beautiful landscaping along well-groomed pathways and walkways, streams and ponds.  It is a very tranquil place.  You can enjoy a stroll through the 110-acre botanical garden with its exciting horticultural displays, but there are also many activities scheduled througout the year at the garden:  Art in the Garden, Lunchtime Concerts, Friday Outdoor Movie Nights, Folk Music Sundays, Christmas Walks.  You can also tour the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Alden B. Dow home.  It is a garden for all seasons to be enjoyed!
