Visit the New York Botanical Garden

It's a New York City classic, so we can’t help but put this on the top of the list. Take in the views of every beautiful blooming flower imaginable as you walk through the NYC Botanical Garden. From rare orchids to dazzling tulips, who knew there could be so much color in one place? Plus, there’s free admission all day on Wednesdays and from 9am to 10am on Saturdays. I mean, how could you pass this one up?
