H's mother was visiting in the recent weeks.
She loves Christmas, so I thought it would be fun taking her to the Holiday Train Show at New York Botanic Garden.
Knowing that the train show is a popular holiday activity, I strategically planned the visit on Thanksgiving Sunday when there were significantly less crowd.
Many New York iconic landmarks were made into miniature scale with painstaking details using natural plants.
It is truly enchanting to see the show after sunset when the twinkling lights illuminates the conservatory.
Many parents bring their young children to see the show.
Kids' eyes lid up watching the train passing through the miniature New York architectures.
The mini conservatory looked just as beautiful as the real one.
It was a warm day when we visited, so we were able to enjoy the botanic garden as much as the train show.
For those of you who are interested in visiting, read up the great tips to make your visit more enjoyable.
If you are driving and going with more than 2 people, you may want to sign up for the Garden memberships.
The discounts, guest passes, and free parking may be worth it!
