Visit Bronx Botanical Gardens and Neighborhood

This will be our first outing where we will venture to the Bronx borough of New York City.  We will experience the multicultural diversity of the Bronx while viewing the scenery of the New York Botanical Gardens.

We will travel to the New York Botanical Gardens, one of the country’s most popular botanical gardens.  The garden contains 250 acres of over 1,000,000 plants, 50 gardens, and over 30,000 mature trees.  Other unique features of the garden are the Peggy Rockerfeller Rose Garden and the Haupt Conservatory, a large “crystal palace-style” greenhouse built in the 1890’s.  Visit for more information.

Our outing will conclude at Arthur Avenue, which is known as the “Little Italy” of the Bronx.  Arthur Avenue is a traditional Italian neighborhood that features a variety of stores, shops, restaurants, and bakeries.  We will have dinner at the Arthur Avenue Retail Market, a popular local tourist market.  The market features nine restaurants, five pastry shops, five bread stores, butchers, pasta makers, fish markets, gourmet coffee shops, and other small shopping options.

Important Note:  Admission to the Bronx Botanical Gardens is $10.00


*A detailed itinerary will be emailed one week before the date of the trip.
