New York Botanical Garden
The New York Botanical Garden turns 125 years old in 2016, and its beloved Holiday Train Show is scheduled to continue chugging along until January 18. The display features miniature trains moving among 150 NYC landmarks made entirely from plant parts. This year, organizers built an extra 3,000 square feet of exhibition space for guests to enjoy during the day and, for the 21-and-over crowd, on some nights.
The garden's Orchid Show is set to run from late February through April. Haupt Conservatory will be decked out with thousands of hanging orchids, creating a beautiful aerial display for visitors to wander through. The flower show also features dance performances, poetry and nighttime programming, so it's a full-fledged event.
