There really is nothing going on this weekend, at least that I can find. Sure, there are tons of samples sales, barbecues, etc. But nothing that really sings to my heart as sustainable.
So, let’s switch it up! Now is a great time for me to tell you all the amazing places you can go this summer that aren’t one-time-only.

The Botanical Gardens
Central Park is fine, but if you really want to forget you are in the city, try one of its two botanical gardens: Brooklyn Botanical Garden (pictured) and New York Botanical Garden (in the Bronx). The smell of a rose garden or the tranquility of a Japanese koi pond will erase those memories of terrible subway experiences right from your mind. Though they are situated at the opposite ends of the city, they offer unique pleasures. I would suggest trying both out.
What to bring: A pretty sundress for strolling with your beau.
