Music In Central Park

A great place to wander, especially at the weekend. There were musicians in all corners of the park.

Brazilian kids do not know the liberty of walking kilometers, by bike or walking, without robbers trying to steel your moms purse. So we must go there. Safe, delicious, lots of nice gardens, kids playing, wonderful. We loved it.

My husband and I took a walk through Central Park which was a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of the city, you can hardly imagine it exists. We would have loved to stick around and have a picnic but we ran out of time - definitely something for our next visit.

We hired bikes which was a great way to see the park although to explore into the centre, you had to dismount which was a shame. Seeing the skyscrapers from such a wonderful, green space was amazing.

Enjoy a stroll around this park or a horse and cart ride. I enjoyed the spring flowers and the cute friendly squirrels. Be prepared for it taking a few hours.

Central Park is a place to get away while in the hustle and bustle of the city. You can easily get "lost" while exploring this massive park. Well worth a visit.

Central Park is always a good choice. There are many things to to there: jogging, walking or just sitting there quietly to relax or for a chat. It is one of my favorite places in Manhattan.
