Aside from seeing Central Park from one of our comfy helicopters, there are other great things to do and see in the park this season. As the summer kicks in and the city gets flooded with people, we all need an escape from the hustle and bustle of the streets. Central Park is definitely a much needed oasis that is worth exploring.
Here are some of the top things to do in Central Park this summer.
Catch one of the many free concerts scheduled every week at the Summer Stage, near Bethesda Terrace. From top chart performers to small local bands, the summer stage is a great opportunity to catch on some top names without paying a fortune. For more details and schedules check Central Park’s website.
Renting a bicycle in Central Park is definitely among the best ways to explore the park. Instead of being stuck in a sweaty gym and away from any direct sunlight, just grab a bicycle and go for a spin in the park. Venture out in the north part of the park, where you will discover some magical places that very few people know about, such as the hidden waterfalls located at the Ravine. Learn more about bicycle rentals.
One of the recent trends in Central Park is BikeNYoga, a combination of an outdoor spinning class with an yoga practice in a hidden place in Central Park. If you are a yoga practitioner, you will definitely enjoy the experience.
