Priceless little urban get away…President Teddy Roosevelt was known as the conservation president. Roosevelt Island is such a great tribute and such an easily accessible reminder of how legendary the story and how valuable the asset, our National Park System!
Did you know that forest bathing is a staple of preventive healthcare and healing in Japan? I first heard of forest bathing on NPR on one of my drives out of Cleveland to Washington. How convenient! A forest bath is not a bath or a hike, but an immersion of the senses. The guest, therapy guide, Melanie Choukas-Bradley, leads forest bathing retreats at Roosevelt Island.
So treat yourself to a forest bath! The bike ride there alone, is worth the price of admission!
