It seems like all things are designed for the gram these days. Love it or hate it, the social media is real and it’s not going away. So, embrace the coolness of the photos you’re scrolling through and check out the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Yet, another place that will leave you wondering if you’re even in New York and have you telling all of your friends. While Winter may not seem like the season to visit a garden, the timing is extremely important as one of the neatest exhibits is gone after this weekend!

Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an urban botanic garden that connects people to the world of plants, fostering delight and curiosity while inspiring an appreciation and sense of stewardship of the environment.  In the Garden, in its community, and well beyond, Brooklyn Botanic Garden inspires people of all ages through the conservation, display, and enjoyment of plants; with educational programs that emphasize learning by doing; and with research focused on understanding and conserving regional plants and plant communities. The Team behind the Brooklyn Botanic Garden kicks it up a notch this time of year and presents something you won’t find anywhere else. As we alluded to earlier, it’s not here forever so you best catch it before its gone!

Explore Brooklyn Botanic Garden like never before at the after-dark, illuminated spectacular Lightscape. Join with family and friends to celebrate the beauty of nature in winter on this enchanting trail animated by a curated soundtrack and over one million dazzling lights. Discover international showstoppers like the Winter Cathedral tunnel, Fire Garden, and Sea of Light, as well as new works by local artists, including a series of poems by celebrated author Jacqueline Woodson written in light.

We just wrapped up the holiday season, so these types of events are hard to find unless you want to wait another year. Make the trip. Heck, it even fits in with dry January!
