The Bronx is brimming with different cultures and fun activities that are guaranteed to keep visitors of any age and interest satisfied. Families often flock to the 265-acre Bronx Zoo and its accompanying children's zoo, while those looking for lush green head to the New York Botanical Garden's indoor floral displays. Visit Wave Hill, where winding, sometimes snow-dusted paths give way to sweeping views of the Hudson River, or test your balance on the ice rink in Van Cortlandt Park. Take a tour, too, at Yankee Stadium or with a guide from Tour America or SusanSez NYC Walkabouts. After a day of exploring, warm up inside one of Arthur Avenue's authentic Italian restaurants and bakeries—some claim they have the best fresh-made provolone, pasta and biscotti outside of Italy.
The Bronx's Little Italy serves up authentic cuisine and old-fashioned charm.
