Tower Hill Botanical Gardens is a great place to spend the day if you are itching to get out of the city. As Spring hits, the 132 acres of gardens, meadows and woodland trails display over 95,000 flowering bulbs. Bring your own picnic or enjoy lunch at Twig's Cafe. (Their cool cantaloupe bisque is excellent!)
