Take one of four daily Central Park Bike Tours and experience the top tourist destination in New York City in style. This two hour tour will have you huffing and puffing (in a good way) as you cycle past the 250 acres of lawns, 24,000 trees, 150 acres of lakes and streams and 80 acres of woodlands that make up the most famous public park in the world. If you go when things are in full bloom, the thousands of bulbs, shrubs, flowers and trees that grow each year are quite a sight to behold.
Besides the natural beauty that the park contains, your Central Park Bike Tour will bring you past famous locations like the Bethesda Fountain, Strawberry Fields, the Dakota and the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. One other advantage of the tour is that guests get the opportunity to feast their eyes on lesser- visited sights like the Sheep Meadow, Shakespeare Garden, Swedish Marionette Theater and Cleopatra’s Needle.
While you’re exploring the park you might want to ditch the bike (temporarily of course) for a Central Park Movie Tour. Every tour is different, but you are guaranteed to take in some of the top sights from stage and screen including a look at landmarks like the firehouse from Ghostbusters, the outside of Peter Parker’s apartment from Spider-Man and the building that the cast of Friends made famous.
