Yankee Stadium and America's largest zoo are the top two tourist destinations in New York City's northernmost borough. The borough that gave us hip-hop, J.Lo, and Kerry Washington is northeast of Manhattan, across from the Harlem River, and it has a lot of places to see while visiting New York. The only borough that is not an island is the Bronx, which can be reached by bus or subway from various locations in Manhattan as well as from the LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International Airports in New York City. With this list of the top Bronx selfie spots, you can find the best spots to take pictures while on vacation in the Big Apple. Keep reading the list with the top 5 places to take the best Instagram photos!
Vacationing sounds good but,..
Most people think that vacationing is an idea that only happens when the stars line up but we beg to differ. Vacationing happens when you say so or at least when you decide to plan it out.
Outlined underneath are five resource links that can help you achieve your goals of vacationing sooner rather than later.
"It's too expensive!" This is probably the most common reason why vacationing never happens and we agree but before we co-sign that excuse let's just find out how much the flight and hotel will cost.
"I can't afford it!" Got it! You want to go but you don't know how to pay for it. Do a reverse layaway. Put it on a low interest rate credit card then pay it off afterwards. It really is that simple. Here is a link to some really great credit card offers. Now book your trip and enjoy.
Families and animal lovers must visit the largest urban zoo in the nation. The famous Bronx Zoo, operated by the Wildlife Conservation Society, is only a short distance from the E. 180th St. subway station and has more than 650 species. If you make the trip to this unique attraction, which includes exhibits like the Congo Gorilla Forest, Wild Asia Monorail, a Children's Zoo, and opportunities to connect with animals through interactive programs, you will get your money's worth. Its tagline is the "Wildest Place in the City." Every year, the Run for the Wild event brings people together for a 5K run/walk to raise money for endangered species conservation. Don't miss the chance to admire all those animals, but also to fill up your Instagram feed with great photos!
The 250-acre New York Botanical Garden, located close to Fordham University and across the street from the Bronx Zoo, is a must-see destination for its many gardens, iconic Holiday Train Show, and stunning Orchid Show (held from February to April). Travel to a tropical paradise by entering the magnificent Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, taking a stroll through an old-growth forest at the Thain Family Forest, and taking pictures of gorgeous blooms in the Jane Watson Irwin Perennial Garden and Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. The New York Botanical Garden is a fantastic option for those looking for a serene outdoor location for a wedding. A ton of photos are waiting for you while enjoying this stunning Garden!
Location: 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, New York
A visit to Yankee Stadium, the home of the 27-time World Series champions, is sure to be a memorable one whether you are a baseball fan or not. This new Yankees stadium, which opened in 2009, elevates the experience of watching baseball thanks to comfortable lower-level seating and a variety of food concessions beyond curly fries. Eat at Jersey Mike's, Benihana, Mighty Quinn's BBQ, Haru Sushi, or Bareburger while watching the Yankees compete on their home field against teams like the Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Baltimore Orioles, and Toronto Blue Jays, among others. Bareburger even offers vegan options. Visit the Yankees Museum to learn about the team's history and view memorabilia, or go outside to Monument Park to see plaques honoring notable Yankee players. Make your followers on Instagram admire this beautiful Stadium
The Bronx Museum of the Arts, housed in a former synagogue donated by the City of New York, specializes in political and social themes important to the local communities while showcasing contemporary art that reflects the many cultures that make up the borough. The Grand Concourse Cultural District is home to the Bronx Museum of the Arts. More than 2,000 works of art by artists from Africa, Latin America, and Asia are included in its permanent collection. Additionally, the museum hosts activities, educational programs, and school field trips. You will have the opportunity to take a lot of wonderful photos for your Instagram account.
The Italian influence is pervasive throughout this vibrant business district in Little Italy, Bronx, which is marketed as "The Good Taste of Tradition". The authentic Italian restaurants, delis, bakeries, butcher shops, fish markets, pastry shops, and specialty shops that can be found here reflect its rich ethnic heritage and amazing culinary influence. Unbelievably, many of these neighborhood businesses are still run and owned by the original Italian families who founded them in the early 1900s. Also nearby Little Italy in the Bronx are Yankee Stadium, the New York Botanical Garden, and the Bronx Zoo! Feel Italian and upload amazing pictures to Instagram!
