    They say "no outside food allowed" but lines at the cafes tend to get very long on weekends. If you aren't obnoxious about it, you most likely can get away with bringing your own picnic.

    Spend an entire lazy day here. Bring a book, find the hammock, take a nap, have a picnic or explore. Bonus: bring along an art history buff who can point out the paintings the sculptures are imitating

    Great place to wander & appreciate art. One visit doesn't do it justice, think of what each season is like! Do stop at Rats to eat, drink, sit outside by the water...
