One of our holiday traditions is to take in the Holiday Train Show at the Botanical Gardens. The Holiday Train show includes adorable model trains as the  make their way through some of  New York’s popular landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

The Botanical Gardens Holiday Train show is transformed into a winter wonderland filled with replicas of popular landmarks made entirely out of plant-based materials such as twigs, acorns and leaves. In addition, there is gingerbread town, filled with gingerbread houses designed by city bakers. Your little ones can step inside a child-sized gingerbread playhouse, as well as decorate a gingersnap cookie.

Where: New York Botanical Garden
