The kids will be out of school soon for the holidays and it’s time to muster up ideas on how to keep them entertained. Unfortunately for me, I have to work but I am packing up our weekends with some major holiday fun. Ever since Andre was younger, I have wanted to take him to the New York Botanical Garden‘s Holiday Train show. I’m excited that I will finally be taking him with my nephews!
A must-see New York tradition where enchanting model trains zip past popular landmarks under the twinkling glow of the magical Haupt Conservatory! Step into a city in miniature featuring more than 150 iconic buildings, all re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials. Marvel at G-scale trains humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center—surprising at every turn—on a quarter-mile of track as they enliven this cherished holiday experience. The Artist’s Studio showcases how visionary artist Paul Busse and his team craft these amazing small wonders. Real trains, real landmarks, real fun—only at NYBG!
The Holiday Train Show® may be the centerpiece among the Garden’s seasonal offerings, but it’s the first stop in a wide range of events and programming geared toward families and adults alike. Explore 250 acres of crisp winter landscapes during tours of the Garden’s many collections, experience festive evening events, and take care of your holiday shopping list!
The Holiday Train Show is open now until January 19. You can purchase tickets at http://www.nybg.org/visit/tickets2.php
