Destinations
Wave Hill House - photo by Luxury Experience
Looking for a fun New York "day getaway"? We fell in love ... with Wave Hill located on 28 stunning acres along the Hudson River in the Riverdale section of Bronx, New York, which is a stunning oasis to relax, refresh, and enjoy art and nature. Their slogan is "A public garden and cultural center," and on the day we visited there were beautiful gardens to explore, new art installations in their galleries, and dance performances by Pigeonwing Dance . Although we were only 12 miles from Midtown Manhattan, it felt like were worlds away. Easily accessible by car, Metro-North train, subway, and bus, Wave Hill is the perfect place to spend the day for New Yorkers, Tri-Staters, or "Big Apple" visitors.
