10 Tips for Planning a Fun and Easy Road Trip

10 Tips to Planning a Fun and Easy Road Trip

Central Park New York

Central Park has to be one of my favorite spots in New York City. When I am feeling a little "overdone" in the concrete jungle of New York City, I love to spend some time in Central Park.


Check out the videos we found on Central Park in the winter, Asking the Locals what they like to do, the Boat Pond and Races, some quieter lesser known areas in the park, and carriage rides.


These videos will give you a sense of Central Park and why you should make sure that you include Central Park in your plans for your next New York City vacation.



You can enjoy it in the any season, my favorite is the fall when the leaves are changing.



This video shows you Central Park in the winter (brrrrr) but it looks beautiful and a lot of fun!

Central Park New York: Carriage Rides

What can be more romantic or more "New York" then taking a carriage ride in Central Park? On our first trip away together, Warren sucked it up (he is really allergic to horses) and took me on a romantic ride through Central Park. It has always stayed with me as one of our more romantic memories.


I actually thought it would be kind of hokey, but it wasn't, we really enjoyed it. Since then we took a carriage ride from Times Square on a Sunday night late after leaving a club to our hotel near Penn Station which was really pretty cool as the city was quiet and we had 5th Avenue to ourselves! We also took one in the rain from Tavern on the Green (we were there for Easter Brunch) to our hotel across the park. It was much better than a taxi!


Kelley Ferro of Tripfilms shows you how great the carriage rides are and where to get them in this video.
