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....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

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 bubbles 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.

“Lush and an escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Loved some green in a sea of concrete. It is amazing to see all the birds/ducks. Lots of people walking/bicycling. Felt completely safe during the day walking round CP.

“Freezing cold but beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

You have to get a carriage ride through central park! it is the best way to see a fair bit of it for a decent price. otherwise you are stuck walking around in -2 degrees Celsius...not fun! The driver told us about the parts where movies have been filmed and the surrounding buildings. definitely and iconic part in the holiday. The trees still had a fair bit of their leaves on and were a beautiful orange colour and this time of the year. lovely scenery and picturesque.
