If you like the tropical exotic orchids here is "the place" to visit this spring. The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx offers the largest orchid exhibition in North America. This year they feature French botanist and artist Patrick Blanc's Vertical Gardens.
The exhibit is filled with countless kinds of orchids from all over the world. It is quite a breathtaking. The exhibit is definitely different from the past years if you have seen.
Greeting you is a high wall of various orchids in the fountain
There are also different gardens and facilities that you may want to check out before or after the Orchid Exhibit such as the Children's Adventure Garden, the brand new Azalea Garden that was just completed and opened last year, the Family Garden, and many more. There are tram cars running through the garden by schedules if you feel like enjoying the garden without having to walk (kids also enjoy that very much). The garden ground and facilities are wheel chair accessible.
