When most people think of NYC, usually the images of the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and Central Park come to mind. With Spring finally arriving, and a quick ride on the Bronx River Pkwy, we decided to explore the Botanical Gardens. If you are a native New Yorker, and have only been to the Bronx to see the Yankees, you are missing out.

I may not be a horticulturist, but I can appreciate lush landscapes, trees as tall as buildings and older than 100 years old. If you decide to visit, the Mertz Library is a great place to explore, and will bring out the botanist in you. The 250 acres of trees and flowers can be used to educate kids, and celebrate unions as they have locations on the grounds for weddings or parties. During our visit, we stumbled upon a wine tasting. It’s not a wine tasting in NYC, if there isn’t a long line. Luckily there were multiple vendors to keep the public happy, and a band to entertain.
Although NYC is home to many attractions, we should not forget about the local flavor that makes NYC what it is. No matter where you live, there has to be a museum or a park that can distract you from your technology. What plans do you have for your weekend?
