Keep busy with the coolest outdoor activities for kids and exploring spectacular local public gardens (it's officially time to stop and smell the flowers!). You'll also probably want to hit up our favorite kids' playgrounds if the weather's fair, and our favorute indoor playgrounds if it's not! Here's a list of fun ideas to get you started.
The cherry blossoms are making their appearance a little early this year, and we're so ready! Celebrate the occasion with the annual Sakura Matsuri festival at Brooklyn Botanical Garden, where over 60 events and activities will help families celebrate hanami (the Japanese tradition of enjoying the blossoms each year).
Learn about the Caribbean island’s diverse ecosystem through this bilingual exhibit that introduces its forests, caves, wetlands, and reefs. Live animals, specimens, artifacts, and models of animal species found only in Cuba will be on display in a variety of recreated habitats. And because Cuba is about so much more than fascinating wildlife, the exhibit also dives into the life and culture of the country. Stroll along an open boulevard that’ll plop you right in the middle of a vibrant Cuban street that’s come alive with music, dance, and performances. Learn about the spiritual teachings of Santeria and how to grow Cuba’s most important cash crop tobacco. If you were ever curious about what the island is about, then grab the family for an interactive lesson. You might just be booking a plane ticket right as soon as you arrive home. All ages.
