Photo Diary: Central Park, New York

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you’ll know that this year I visited New York for the first time, and absolutely LOVED it. It’s one of those cities that is on so many people’s bucket lists, and although it can be quite a pricey city to visit, I had such a good time and would honestly recommend visiting if you can.

One of the things that we enjoyed most during our few days in New York was visiting Central Park. Central Park is more amazing than I thought it would be – and bigger! Did you know that it is 2.5 miles long and covers 843 acres?! Given it’s parameter to Times Square, it is unbelievably huge, and has so many different sections and areas, you’ll be surprised at how much you can do and see in Central Park.

We spent pretty much a whole day there, but could’ve spent much longer and explored more. My favourite thing that we did, that I had no idea you could even do, was rowing a boat on one of the lakes. So much fun, and so cheap to do as well! We also had a really lovely time just walking around and taking in all of the sights. Here are just a few of the snaps I took while we were there –  obviously this was in the summer, so it’ll be looking very different at this time of year!

      Thanks Robyn. I’d been dying to go for years and so glad we did! We had great weather, apart from one huge hour long downpour which caught us out! Next time I want to visit in Winter and see all those amazing lights! Highly recommend taking the time to go! x
