Central Park walking tour
Discover the secrets and magnificence of Central Park, the 843-acre lush oasis that sits right in the middle of the concrete jungle. Stroll along The Mall--a tree-lined pedestrian walkway originally designed to accommodate the width of carriages of the time. Follow the path until the end, where you'll learn about the 26-feet high neoclassical sculpture Bethesda Fountain, also known as Angel of the Waters. Gaze upon the 2.5-acre Strawberry Fields tribute to the late John Lennon, commemorating his vision of peace and hope for the world.
Ice skating at Wollman Rink
Ice skating in NYC is a classic winter activity steeped in tradition dating back to 1858 with skating on the lake, and continuing nearly a century later when Wollman Rink opened in 1950. Skate during the day with the sunshine on your face, or enjoy a romantic evening skating under the stars with the city lights as your backdrop. Either way, the magical winter ambiance is an experience that should not be missed, whether you’re just visiting the Big Apple or are a long-time resident.
