Enjoy a winter visit at the Bronx Zoo.

If you find yourself in the need to warm up, and a visit to the café for some hot chocolate is not enough, enter the indoor Jungle World for some rainforest warmth.

The New York Botanical Garden in the Winter
The New York Botanical Garden is a true winter wonderland. What better wait to beat the winter blues than to get out into nature. While it may be difficult to motivate, in a winter landscape you can appreciate the different hues of nature, especially against a white snowy canvas. But don’t worry, you can always find a place to warm up, whether in the tropical feel of the conservatory or enjoying a bite in the café. If you don’t want to venture on your own you can join one of garden’s guided activities.
