It is always nice to escape from home for the day and have an adventure with your family or friends. Fortunately for us, as residents at Peter Cooper Village Stuyvesant Town apartments, the Bronx is near and offers a number of activities for us to enjoy. Make note of the following ideas for a day trip that you won't soon forget.
The Bronx Zoo is perfect for animal lovers of all ages. With over 6,000 animals, this zoo has a wide variety of animals. Watch the sea lions sun bathe at the sea lion pool, watch the Madagascar swing from vine to vine, be amazed at the size of the big bears, and check out the birds of prey. Head over to the children's petting zoo, watch a movie in the 4-D theater, go for a camel ride, watch the penguins at feeding time, ride the bug carousel, and so much more.
The New York Botanical Garden is a great way to escape the city into a world of nature and beauty. This attraction is situated on 250 acres and has a plethora of gardens, acres of native forest, rolling hills, a river, and waterfalls. There is even an indoor rain forest and desert. They also have special exhibits and special events. For instance, on May 9th and May 10th, there is a Mother's Day Weekend Garden Party, and from April through October, they have an Edible Academy Program.
Head on over to Yankee Stadium and watch the New York Yankees play a baseball game. Cheer on your team, eat hot dogs and nachos, drink soda and catch the action with your friends and family.
The Bronx Museum of the Arts is the place to be if you enjoy contemporary artwork. Here you will find over 1,000 pieces of beautiful art. They currently have several exhibits on display, including Three Photographers from the Bronx. There is no admission fee to enter the museum.
The Lehman Center for the Performing Arts is ideal for seeing concerts and performing arts. Here you will find a large variety of dance, music, and theater performances, including comedians, ballet, hip hop music, R & B music, and so much more. Make a night of it with dinner on the town, followed by an unforgettable show.
Step back into history at the Van Cortlandt House Museum. This building is the oldest standing building in the Bronx. It was built in the 1700's. Learn about the history of the house and hear many stories from the past, such as the early years of New Amsterdam and the experiences of one family who sought to help secure New York City's future.
The Bronx Equestrian Center is a great spot for your children to ride a pony, for you to ride a horse, or for the whole family to go on a haywagon ride. You can also take a horseback riding lesson or go on a peaceful trail ride at Pelham Bay Park.
