Here are 5 must-sees in Central Park (in no particular order)!
1. The Belvedere Castle. I know - a castle in Central Park?! Well actually, it’s a miniature castle looking over the lake in the park. It served as a lookout over the park back in the 1800s and it was renovated in the late 1960’s. At least you’ll be inside and looking at the outside.
2. The Conservatory Garden. The garden within the park is a peaceful oasis of a variety of fauna. This late in the fall, you might not get as much variety but it still has a nice vibe and you can sit by the fountain to chill and enjoy a sunny but chilly afternoon.
3. The Central Park Zoo. Not everyone likes a zoo but the one in Central Park has been made iconic by Dreamworks’ Madagascar. Don’t you want to go see the animals and check if the lion roars, if the zebra treadmills or if the penguins just smile and wave?
4. The Central Park Carousel. If you want to relieve childhood or live a very cliché experience with a special someone, go check out the carousel and hitch a ride. You can re-enact the cool scene at the end of “Now You See Me” or tilt you head back and enjoy the slow but wavy ride.
5. Loeb Boathouse on the Lake. Another inside attraction, on a lake, in Central Park. But hey, why not go see another point of view of the lake from inside a heated boat house and maybe have a nice hot chocolate with a good book? You can even canoe on the lake in the right season.
So here you have it, the best things to do in Central Park, even on a chilly late-fall day. Don’t miss out on walking around the lungs of the Big Apple. Check out this link to see the trip we offer to New York.
