Bronx Botanical Gardens

One of the loveliest places in the world to me is the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. This is truly an urban oasis. In every season this is a great spot to visit; there are many gardens and trails filled with diverse flora, and there are groups that bird watch here as well so you are sure to see some wildlife. I enjoy walking by the river,

And enjoying the scenery.

There are wonderful programs such as the train show and the orchid show. With all of the splendid sights and colors you forget all about the bitter cold outside.

The gardens are free to the public on Wednesdays, and the Bronx Zoo is free this day as well.
