While we were on our trip to New York, we had a ‘bucket list’ of places that we wanted to visit.
One of those places was Central Park.
The last time that we were in New York, we took walks in Central Park.
Central Park is one of those hidden gems that people rarely remember to include on their travel list of things to do.
With New York offering so much to do, Central Park is often forgotten about.
I like that Central Park is free, is beautiful, and offers so much to do. It would be hard to do everything in one day.
On this day, we walked around and then decided to sit down to watch a softball game. It was a beautiful sunny day with a temperature in the 70’s. We had planned to visit the Central Park Zoo but, since we got there at 4 and the zoo closed at 5, we thought that we would not have enough time. Unfortunately, this was our last chance to visit the zoo on this trip.
The only really annoying thing about Central Park are the guys wanting to give you a ride through the park. Yes, this is so glamorized on TV and in the movies by lovers and others. But, these guys come at you left and right to ask you if they can give you a ride. The best way to dodge them is to not make eye contact and to tell them that you are a local if they talk to you.
