Many Manhattanites tend to stick to their surrounding areas when it comes to what they eat, drink and generally the places they hang out in.  Yes, we all love what this city can bring, but why not head up north a bit to see what The Bronx has to offer?  The Bronx is only a short trip uptown on the 4, 5 and 6 trains, and has a variety of fantastic places to go to that will definitely spark a new interest in this lovely neighborhood.

The South Bronx area was recently voted one of the best places to visit by Business Insider, and rightfully so!  Here is a list of some awesome spots to head to.  Eat, drink, be merry… and enjoy!
