New York Botanical Gardens Train Show


New York has an overwhelming list of “to do’s” during the holiday season. Most of the tourist attractions are overcrowded and NOT FUN for little ones. I suggest waiting until your kids are older and are able to walk on their own and go on a toilet before you trudge around Rockefeller Center.


Drive to the Bronx instead and check out the New York Botanical Gardens Train Show.

It is breathtaking; everything is intricately handmade to match New York landmarks. My son is a train enthusiast and was flabbergasted by all the trains running around the exhibit. When he saw Thomas and Percy I believe if he had more of a vocabulary he would have told me it was the highlight of his year. We also went with Ari’s bestie O who is the same age but not as into trains as Ari and she couldn’t stop smiling the entire time.


They do have a café but they allow you to pack a lunch if you prefer.
