Summer is around the corner, and that means you’re going to want to head outside when visiting Manhattan. Of all the places you must see, the iconic Central Park is at the top of the list, and you could honestly spend your entire stay exploring it. Here are some suggestions on how to enjoy the space.
Take A Yoga Class
Throughout the summer, you can find group yoga classes right in Central Park. Whether you get up to join a sunrise vinyasa, or let yourself bake in some afternoon heat, the venue promises to be as original and iconic as they come.
Go On A Bike Tour
Everyday this summer, travelers can join a bike tour in Central Park. They typically run from 8am to 8pm, and often include bikes, helmets, baskets, locks, maps, and waters. This is a great family activity to enjoy in Central Park.
Join A Scavenger Hunt
Randomly, and awesomely, scavenger hunts are a major thing in Central Park. It actually makes sense, since the park does sit on a massive plot of land that’s filled with hidden secrets and discoveries. These hunts usually have fun themes, like the Amazing Race.
Get In A Water Fight
Central Park is constantly popping with strange, quriky events that showcase the local community’s creativity. One of the most popular in recent years has been the annual water fight on the Great Lawn. Head over and join thousands spraying each other with super soakers and dressing up in fun costumes.
Go To A Concert
Central Park is home to one of the best summer concert series in the city. This summer’s most notable musical guests will include Jason Mraz, O. A.R., Dispatch, and as always, the free concert from the New York City Philharmonic.
