Holiday Train Show

We took our son to the Holiday Train Show at the Botanical Gardens.  We had a great time.  My husband and I went to the Holiday Train show 5 years before. We really enjoyed it and couldn’t wait to take our son.  Last year, I wanted to take him but he was only a month old and he would not really pay attention to it.  This year was better.

The Holiday Train Show at the Botanical Gardens in New York City is very popular.  Many people make it a tradition to take their children to see it.  There are many trains that run through many tracks.  It’s amazing to see all the buildings that are build using natural things like bark, pinecones and so many other things found in nature.  When we got to the Botanical Gardens, the lot was full, so I was afraid that it was going to be very busy.  It was busy but we were able to walk through and see everything.  The train show is located at the Conservatory at the Botanical Gardens. There are timed tickets but that makes it easier to view it.

The change between the past 5 years was that there is a short video about the person who created the train show as well as how they put the whole thing together.   It’s amazing how many people it takes, how many trains there are, how many tracks there are and how they come up with the whole idea.

The buildings that are designed are all Manhattan buildings.  You have Rockfeller Center, Yankees Stadium, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and so many others.  It’s amazing just taking your time to view these buildings created.  I could not stop taking photographs of everything.  I really recommend everyone to visit the train show at least once in their life. I am lucky that I live in New York and I am able to visit it every year.  I can not wait to make it a family tradition and visit the Train show every year with our son.
