Each year, the U.S. Botanic Garden warmly welcomes the holiday crowds with a special display known as Season's Greenings. No two years feature the same theme, so if you come by this holiday season, you'll be among the first to see the plant-based "Roadside Attractions."
As an homage to cross-country road trips, "Roadside Attractions" takes iconic pit stops from each state and makes mini versions using botanical construction materials. Check out pint-sized renditions of the frankfurter-shaped Coney Island Hot Dog Stand from Colorado, the Cadillac Ranch from Texas, and Lucy the Elephant from New Jersey. Toy trains weave in and out of the "Roadside Attractions," engaging little ones and adults alike at this free exhibit. It's on display at the U.S. Botanic Garden from now through New Year's Day with special holiday concerts on select Tuesdays and Thursdays.
