So glad I got to see Central Park has always been on my bucket list. Wonderful feeling being in the middle but still seeing the outline of all the high rises. So many places to see and things to do in park, or just walk and relax.

If a sunset carriage ride through Central Park doesn't get you a goodnight kiss, nothing will. Beautiful, romantic informative.

Our family enjoyed a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. Cost for a family of 5 was $160.00 plus tip. Our driver was very funny and shared a lot of information with us about famous movie stars that live in certain high rises, skating rinks and certain areas were movies were filmed. Loved seeing the whole park this way.... More

Nice space in the centre of Manhattan it's large so a good distance from one end to the other no real signs so you have to guess which direction to go in. Asked for directions and I was offered a map to purchase a quick go left or right would have been great but unfortunately this help was not forthcoming.

Central Park is more of a warm weather spot than a winter wonder land. However, we did enjoy the snow for a hour or so. It's a beautiful park and a horse drawn carriage is a great way to see it all. But on a day where the temps are in the single digits, I wouldn't recommend it.

This park have plenty of open space in a congested city like New York. Best option to explore the park to rent a bike from the nearby stores. But be cautious to drive bike as... More

We can't visit NYC without a long walk in the most beautiful park in the U.S. We love the quiet parts, the bustling parts, the statues, everything.

Central Park is definitely my favorite place in NYC. It is huge and beautiful. It is a place where you can relax after the overcrowded and noisy NY streets and have a romantic walk. Take some nuts with you - there are a lot of squirrels:)
