What I've learned on these short visits to a country or cities (Austria, Germany, Turkey, Ireland, Russia, Italy, Estonia, Egypt etc.)  is that going to "green spaces" or parks is not a good use of my time and money. There are breathtaking parks and nature preserved in Ohio.  If I had a week or two in the city, it would be great.  Also, after a few trips, the cathedrals that are in shambles and falling down, well, you only need one or two.  Especially if you have bursitis or arthritis.
