Explore Central Park
Central Park is where almost everyone goes to exercise, relax, or momentarily get back to nature. The park covers a total of 843 acres. This urban oasis includes several noteworthy attractions. There’s the Central Park Zoo (penguins, anyone?), the Great Lawn (great for a picnic), the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir (a popular place for joggers), the Loeb Boathouse (rent a canoe and have something to eat), Strawberry Fields (a “must see” for all John Lennon fans), and more. Rent a bike, go jogging, or just take a leisurely stroll.
Catch A Broadway Show
Give your regards to Broadway! Visit Manhattan’s famous Theater District, off the Times Square area. See the marquees advertising the newest show and the various Hollywood celebs who often do stints here. There are lots of choices, but the most popular shows have to be booked in advance. Tickets can be expensive so check the Times Square TKTS booth for same-day discounts. You could save up to 50 percent. Come to NYC during the popular biannual Broadway Week (in fall and in winter) and score “two-for” deals.
