The New York Botanical Garden is one of the best New York attractions for a reason—it has a 50-acre forest, a palace modeled after Spain’s Alhambra, a rose garden, an observatory and plenty of spots to hideaway from it all. Plus, it hosts plenty of beloved events like winter's “Holiday Train Show” and the “Orchid Show.” No wonder it’s one of the best tourist attractions locals actually love! Let’s face it: We all get tired of pounding the pavement now and then (and hearing every damn thing our neighbors do), so head to the Bronx to take a load off. Make sure to check out some of the other wonderful things to do in the Bronx, too.
