It's no secret the New York Botanical Garden's Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is one of our favorite local* spots. (Disclaimer: if it is accessible by subway, it counts!) So we could not be more excited that it is finally time for the Garden's annual The Orchid Show. Time to admire tens of thousands of brilliantly colored blooms amid a tropical paradise of stately palms and exotic foliage. Sigh.
If that is not enough incentive, plan your visit in conjunction with one of the exhibition's Orchid Evenings, where you can swoon - or be swooned - over orchids, cocktails, and a disc jockey.
The New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, New York, NY 10467. The Orchid Show runs through April 22nd. Adult admission starts at $20. Orchid Evenings are March 9th and 23rd, and April 6th, 13th, and 20th, from 6:30-9 p.m.
