We walked back through Central Park from the American History Museum, we had a day of snow which made the walk perfect, New York in the snow is stunning. Amazing statues to look at as you walk through the park.

It was my 4th time in NYC, and this is the first time I actually took the time to visit Central Park. Despite the lack of colors, due to the season, it was still very beautiful. I definitely want to go back and see it in all the different seasons.

Whatever the season there’s always something to see and something for all ages. Don’t miss skating on the Wollman rink in the winter months and walking the ramble or boating on the lake in the summer. There’s also the iconic carousel for all ages, the zoo, many statues and things to look at. Although the park is surrounded by busy roads most of the park is really quiet and a lovely getaway from the excitement of the city. Take a packed lunch and sit and watch the world go by. There’s nothing better!

We recently visited New York and Central Park is well worth a visit. We went twice as it wasn’t to far from our hotel. Really lovely to walk around on a nice day.

Close to the park you will find the Plaza Hotel which has been featured in numerous films, including Home Alone as well as 5th Avenue with various designer shops

We did a bike tour around the park which was really interesting, the guy give you information about the statues etc that are in Central Park along with random facts and information. He also pointed out certain locations where various well known films had been filmed as well as the buildings in which famous people currently live or have lived previously. He also stopped in a couple of places for you us to go off for 10-15 minutes ourselves and he also took photos for us.
