Spring Fling: Visit NYC and Washington, D.C. Parks and Gardens This Spring!

Posted on Mar 23, 2016

Spring is finally here and what better way to be out doors and enjoy the weather than to visit the beautiful parks and gardens.

Alexandria and Washington, D.C. are in bloom with the cherry blossoms and it’s a gorgeous time of year to explore the parks and gardens around ​each ​city.  Combine outdoor explorations with indoor ​”​ special”​ museum exhibitions, ​and historic homes ​with beautiful gardens.  Stop for lunch in fun neighborhood restaurants, ​ perfect for ​a romantic meal or dine with ​the ​entire ​family.

Although New York City has over 30,000 acres of park land, the most famous spot for viewing the cherry blossoms is at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Get the real dirt on New York’s famous and powerful residents interned at some of the most beautifully landscaped parks with a guided visit to Woodlawn or Green-Wood Cemetery.  Both are National Historic Landmarks and combine architecture, history and gorgeous gardens.  ​In addition, your guide will help show you the secret gardens of New York which can include the famous four squares, vest pocket parks, atriums, the new waterfront parks and of course, Central Park!
