Opening this Friday, January 7, Country Strong is a hyped new movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Leighton Meester, Garrett Hedlund, Tim McGraw and Kayla Perkins. For fans of country music and just good movies, this is a must-see. The Los Angeles Times film critic states that Country Strong is “down-home and saturating”. Also Gwyneth Paltrow is applauded for her surprisingly sweet voice.

If you’re not up for a movie, go visit Longwood Gardens where you can enjoy dazzling trees, seasonal concerts and a themed holiday display. Although Christmas is over, Longwood Gardens will have their “A Longwood Gardens Christmas” garden decorations until January 9.  500,000 outdoor lights, holiday magic and some other surprises await you during Longwood’s incomparable Christmas display.  Go with your family, friends or a special someone to walk around the stunning grounds and look at beautiful holiday light decorations. Open from 9 am to 9 pm, the admission prices are six dollars for students and sixteen for adults.
