Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square is one of the local attractions that was awarded Michelin stars in the French company’s first edition of Philadelphia Green Guide, writes Emma Dooling for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The Philadelphia guidebook is expected to be available in English next month.
The City of Brotherly Love is the eighth U.S. city to be covered by the Michelin Green Guide. The booklet provides an in-depth look into a city and all of its offerings and awards “star” ratings to various facets of the tourism experience, including attractions and specific aspects of those attractions.
One star rating denotes “worth a visit,” two stars stand for “worth a detour,” and three stars, the highest rating, indicate an experience “worth a special journey.”
Conservatory at Longwood Gardens was awarded three stars by the guide.
Meanwhile, Longwood Gardens itself, the Festival of Fountains at Longwood Gardens, and the Italian Water Garden at Longwood Gardens all got two stars.
Pierce du Pont House at Longwood Gardens is among the one-star recipients.
The Green Guide does not provide rating for hotels or restaurants.
