Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion

Japanese, Italian, Moonlight and Rock are just a sampling of the nine themed gardens at the stunning Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion. Located in Canandaigua, N.Y., in the western portion of the Finger Lakes Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, many of the gardens reflect the original early 20th-century designs of the owner of more than a century ago. Now a New York State Historic Park, the gardens reflect various cultures and historic periods, including 12th-century Asia, 4th-century Rome and the French Renaissance. A Victorian-era greenhouse is home to tropical plants and flowers, such as orchids and succulents, as well as vegetables.
