One of the first things I did in New York, after a crapy overnight flight from Vegas, was walk over to Central Park to do a carriage ride! This was my buddy, Bruno!
We started off at the entrance where all the carriages seem to congregate. We had booked the carriage ride long before we got to New York online so we didn't have to faff around with it all when we got there.
The ride itself took around 45 minutes and took us to all the main points in Central Park. Our guide was great and pointed out all the movie spot locations, any places of significance, and we had the opportunity to get out for photos at certain spots.
Now, Central Park is massive and it is so pretty! There are random lakes and fountains all over the place. It would be very easy to spend a whole day getting lost in Central Park. You can also hire bikes if a carriage ride is not your cup of tea.
This is, obviously, a very popular spot! There were people out in boats, people sunbathing, and others just generally walking around. It was a really hot day, so I was definitely grateful for the shade of the carriage!
Excuse the dirty camera lens, but this is the "Friends fountain" which was typically under refurbishment when I was there! This isn't THE fountain, but the one that they use in the intro was modelled after.
There were so many picturesque spots throughout the tour. We didn't cover even half of Central Park!
We stopped at Strawberry Fields, the spot in Central Park dedicated to John Lennon. It is located near John Lennon's former home, and has this "Imagine" memorial.
All the bridges throughout Central Park are so pretty. I believe this in Pine Bank Arch, which I think has been seen in Elf and a good few other films.
The ride then ended back at the start. It was such a good way to spend some time in the afternoon, and a great way to see a lot of Central Park and its sights.
Finding a bit of pixie dust in every situation.
