Untermyer Gardens

Reviewed By Karen M - Phoenix, Arizona

We went here on a recommendation of a lady we met in a store in Sleepy Hollow. It was so beautiful. Part of the gardens is under construction but the parts we did see were still really lovely. It was a nice place to stop and take pictures.

Manor Park

Reviewed By mosaferNY - new york

Manor park is a beautiful park in Larchmont on the water, with breathtaking view. In the summer the kids love to run up and down the rocks, or just simply sit there and enjoy the view. You can not picnic in the park, and must have your dog on the leash at all times.

New York Botanical Garden

Located in the Bronx, just 20 minutes from Midtown Manhattan via Metro North Railroad, the 250-acre New York Botanical Garden is a showplace of nature in every season of the year and a must-see destination for NYC visitors. Discover 50 breathtaking gardens, indoor rain forests and deserts, 50 acres of native forest, a river, waterfalls, and rolling green hills. Major seasonal exhibitions and events complement the existing beauty of the permanent gardens, and highlights include the Holiday Train Show (November - January) and The Orchid Show (March - April). NYBG is the perfect excursion for visitors looking to experience the natural beauty of New York City.

Reviewed By GMBG - Brooklyn, New York

The annual Orchid Show is one of the highlights of the year. While wonderful in the day -on Friday and Saturday nights, the NYBG sells ticket for 6:30, 7:30or 8:30 entrance. Go for the 6:30 entrance as you will get to see the gorgeous flowers in day light as well as artfully lit in the evening. Plus music is piped in and there are three bar stations. What a fun and beautiful evening experience.

Greenburgh Nature Center & Manor House

Reviewed By preglad - New York

The Greenburgh Nature Center has some nice trails considering where it's located. The main house works effectively enough in terms of interest for very young children, and the rest is over before one knows it. Everyone is quite likable and caring, but it just seems other venues are in a financial position to do this better. It's also a bit unnatural encountering generally wilder creatures inside the second floor of a house surrounded by neighbors with bikes in their driveway.

For me, The Greenburgh Nature Center's main attribute seems to be proximity for those within easy reach. We went with a three year old who, with no complaints, seemed to clearly enjoy herself better in all other trips in our company. Bear Mountain Zoo and surroundings do this all much better, with wider variety of offerings and less expensively.

-- One would imagine, in fairness, with far greater fiscal resources and subsidy as well.

Woodlawn Cemetery

Occupying more than 400 acres in the Bronx, this cemetery is known for the ornate and imaginative mausoleums and monuments of some of the country's most famous industrialists and politicians. Notable individuals include Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Celia Cruz, Irving Berlin, Herman Melville, and many more. Guide maps are available at both cemetery entrances.

Reviewed By mabeena - Bronx, NY

Go in through the Jerome Avenue gate. That is where you should start your tour. All the large mausoleums are there. So many famous people are buried here. Download a map or pick one up at the 233rd St gate. Tours are given and in the fall they have night time tours. it really is a beautiful peaceful setting

Twin Lakes Park

Reviewed By Peter M - Eastchester, New York

It is hard to believe that you are so close to the New York City line when you are in this magnificent park. We love to go bird-watching here, it is a mecca for all sorts of wildlife. Lovely trail around the large lake. The trails are acceptable for mountain bikes since they are also used by the two horse stables in the park. Take your binoculars and especially look out for the waterfowl.

Hudson River Museum

Reviewed By WestSideKid - Bronxville, New York

The Hudson River Museum overlooks the Hudson River along Warburton Avenue just below Odell Avenue. It captures a variety of subjects and modalities, including painting (some Hudson River School paintings, as well as wall panels, posters); some items of sculpture; ecology--the ecology of the Hudson Estuary and River Valley; space (a small planetarium with a changing and excellent sky show); all adjacent to one of the old Hudson Valley mansions of the old Dutch-English families that dominated New York society and business into the early 20th Century. It is probably a good way to introduce younger children to museums since it has so many different types of exhibits, and in fact, it is also used as an educational center for the Yonkers schools. Docent led tours of the museum and particularly the mansion are available. Parking is free in a large lot adjacent to the museum. It is a little tricky to find it driving there, so make sure you use your GPS. The problem is that there are only a few streets that cross that part of Yonkers from the parkways to Warburton Avenue. A small gift shop oriented toward kids with some snacks available, but there is no café.

Chartered in 1935 the Pioneer Shooting Center is the oldest operating range in Westchester County, NY. ​ Fully renovated in 2014 the Pioneer Shooting Center has evolved into a full service shooting range that caters to a variety of shooters including beginners and tourists.

Got a Groupon to take a class on shooting and shooting range time. The safety class was easy and fun setting expectations and gun guidelines. The 50ft shooting range was a great experience and we look to go back for a second visit soon!

Tranquility Spa

Reviewed By Klsmcclain - Nanuet, New York

Been going to this spa for over 10 years. I lived in Hartsdale so it was convenient. I've moved to Rockland County & I still come back over the bridge to tranquility because I couldn't find a spa that could measure up. Surperbly clean, including steam & bathrooms, lockerooms include cookies, water, citrus water, tea, coffee, etc... Friendly attitude by all staff T he professionals, massagers, facial, aesthetician everyone genuinely conveyed that they want you &;your friends & family to come back and not just on holidays
