Looking for the perfect activity that will highlight your visit New York City? While there are many stops that can be considered for NYC bus tours, one that should not be missed is the New York City’s Central Park. This expansive green space offers the perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of the city living. Visit it this winter, and you will see how idyllic it is, different from its character during any other season.
Even if Central Park is covered with snow in winter, it still has a unique beauty that you will surely find captivating. It is even made better by the fact that there will be lesser visitors, which means that you will be able to enjoy this large park sans the crowd.
You will never run out of activities to enjoy. Adults and little ones will have endless fun. One of the most popular is ice skating. Wollman Rink is the perfect place to be. You can go ice skating and admire the splendid view of the Manhattan skyline.
Other winter activities in Central Park include sledding, which is specifically held at Cedar Hill and Pilgrim Hill. You can enjoy this activity as long as the park experiences a minimum of six inches of snow.
While at the park during winter, you might also be interested in cross-country skiing. Many parts of the park, including what used to be a baseball field during summer season, transforms into a place for cross-country skiing in the snow season. Sheep Meadow and Great Lawn are two of the best places.
Lastly, be sure to check out the annual Winter Jam NYC. This is one of the most anticipated events held at Central Park during winter.
