The Orchid Show in NYC guide

Enjoy an early spring at the The Orchid Show—NYC’s incredible floral display at the New York Botanical Garden

The Orchid Show—NYC’s ode to springtime—should not to be confused with the season’s other stupendous garden party the Macy’s Flower Show. However, both bloom fests are worth visiting. If you’re not familiar, The New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show exhibits thousands of species of beautiful blossoming orchids, and it’s one of the best NYC events in February, and lasts through April. Get over your winter blues by enjoying the lush scents and sights of one of the best things to do in The Bronx.
