Summertime in the Bronx means New York Yankees baseball season is in full swing, but that’s not the only thing that has people cheering. It’s a monumental year for the borough, which is celebrating its centennial as a county in 2014. And those who have spent time here understand its charm: the peaceful floral surroundings at the New York Botanical Garden; a visit with giraffes, sea lions, pandas and more at the Bronx Zoo; or a culinary journey to the Bronx’s own Little Italy along Arthur Avenue. It’s all waiting just a train ride away. The Bronx also features two grand greenways for a warm summer’s day: Van Cortlandt Park and Pelham Bay Park. Both offer golf courses, historic houses, playing fields and recreational areas. Can’t decide where to start? Take a tour to experience the borough’s best.
