If you're a serious home buyer, it makes sense to continue your search through the holiday season. Open houses are less crowded. REALTORS® have more time and mortgage companies are a bit more flexible. If you're considering buying one of our Elkhart homes for sale, you'll find an attractive assortment of homes and you can mix your home-shopping with local holiday fun.  

The holidays are also a great time to get to know Elkhart residents and community traditions. There are plenty of local holiday events. But if you have time for only one, visit Wellfield Botanic Gardens Winter Wonderland Holiday Lights 2017 presented by Welch Packaging. It's a "must-see" local Elkhart holiday event. 

Our REALTORS® live and work in Elkhart. Like many residents, we enjoy the Wellfield Botanical Gardens year round. It's a wonderful place to experience nature at its most beautiful. The gardens are even more special during the holidays when beautiful lights and music transform them into a true winter wonderland.

Enjoy the Gardens

The Wellfield site holds 20 beautifully planned gardens. Each garden was designed and built around a theme brought to life with bridges, waterfalls, pavers, and seasonal flowers. Depending on your mood, you may choose to visit the Annual Garden, Conversation Garden, Waterfall Garden, Sensory Garden or one of the other unique green spaces. 

As winter approaches, the gardens have already gone through their autumn transitions. Spring and summer colors have faded. Some plants lie dormant waiting for warmer days. The remaining trees, shrubs, and greenery form a perfect backdrop for holiday lights. Whatever their theme, the lights turn each garden into a wintertime fantasy.
