“How can you do NY without a visit to Central Park?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

So much to do and so much to see. Take a picnic or pick up a lunch at Carnegie Deli and Relax. Run, walk, roller skate, people watch. I've gone alone, with friends and family, with my wife. Never dull, always a new experience...too many to mention. Lot's of great and unique parkes in the world. This is one.

Had a fantastic time wondering around Central Park in the snow! Belvedere Castle, the pond, Strawberry Fields plus walking past the Plaza!

“Just like the movies....”

Went for a winters stroll at christmas time and saw all the sites from the movies - the boat house and the ice rink, etc. Didnt catch a horse drawn carriage but this looks like a fun thing to do!

“Horse drawn carriage”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Whilst in NYC I went on the horse drawn carriage in Central Park with three children (aged 11 - 19) and a toddler. I loved going round the park but our driver didn't really point out the different places we passed. I would have loved a better description of where we were going.

“Just lovely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Definately worth spending some time in Central Park. We were there in winter and for part of the time it was covered in snow, which made it just gorgeous.

Take the time to walk around and enjoy the park. There are photo opportunities all over the place! We also hired bicycles and rode around for half a day - well worth it!
