I have gone to the Botanic Gardens in all seasons and it always amazes. In the spring, summer and fall, there are different flowers in season. We bring our grandchildren to the children's garden which has learning stations for them, a digging pit and water...More

Stopped by last year for a special art installation by Alexander Calder and were smitten by the water features, indoor and outdoor plantings. Very clean and quite the spot! Worth repeated visits if you like this sort of thing!

We have visited the Botanic gardens several times, and each time it has been an excellent adventure. Very educational, somewhat peaceful and always clean and attractive. They have an awesome concert series in the summer and many classes and changing exhibits

I've attended weddings and plant/book sales at the Botanic Garden. I have also spent a quiet Saturday wandering around and admiring the gardens. Absolutely lovely and highly recommended. Cute gift shop as well.

We love the Botanic Gardens and have member passes there. We always take out of town guest to visit and go ourselves nearly every season. They keep the grounds flawless and beautiful and it’s peaceful and relaxing to stroll the park. Love it there!

It can get pretty cold in Dec, and we've been to the Gardens that month. The conservatory is the same as usual, but wandering around outside can be cold - or, given that it's Denver, it could be relatively pleasant. No way... More

I haven't yet but hope to! My DIL is a semi-pro photographer...I'll ask her. And if I get there before you do, maybe I'll have some tips.

Still trying to get Brooklyn right. (6 Replies)
I'm working on our day in Brooklyn but can't get what I need from HopStop because I don't know the correct name of the destination. EG: We want to go from 4th & Lex to Brighton Beach, but there are 2 destinations shown and I have no idea which one to pick. From there we want to walk the boardwalk to Coney. I have no idea how to "explain" that to HopStop. I did get a schedule from HopStop - Coney back to Brooklyn Museum/Brooklyn Botanic Gardens but it involved 2 changes of buses,...More

Ok.. I’m going to try to give you some general directions, put other people will reply to this post, so read them all and take the best of each: I’m a little confused about the 4th and Lex start, but lets’ assume you’re starting from the 53rd street Lexington ave stop. Take the V downtown to west 4th street station. Change for the B train and take that all the way to the end, the Brighton Beach station. That will be a long ride, maybe 45 minutes. Depends on the time of day. Walking along...More

Kayak and Whale Watch with young kids? (10 Replies)
We are heading to Southport Island next week, and would love to do some kayaking and perhaps take a Whale Watching trip with our 5- and 7- year old kids. It seems that Tidal Transit is the best choice for kayaking, and I'd love to take their Wildlife Tour, but not sure if we can take our kids. They have kayaked with us before and love it, but on ponds in the Adirondacks and Lake George. Has anyone taken their young kids on one of their tours? My kids are nature and animal fiends, and I...More

My kids absolutely love the aquarium in Boothbay Harbor. its tiny but thry have a huge touchtank that occupies them for an hour or more. they ask to go every year. The whale watch is a lot of trip and not necessarily a lot of whale. The non-whale part was way too long for my kids and it was not a successful outing. There are other more kid friendly cruises. I just don't think the whale watch is. They loved the Lucky Catch lobster boat cruise in Portland helping bait traps and catching lobster.
