New York City, New York
Recently we kicked off our summer of 2017 with a family trip to share the sights of New York with the grand kids. The unfolding of lush green landscape of Central Park soon became the number the one destination for us in NYC. Central Park provides the perfect spot for kids and grown ups alike to slow down, stop and let off a little steam.
The location of our hotel on Central Park West provided a panoramic view of the park flanked by the city skyline. So each day we were soothed from the hustle and bustle of the day and busy city life by a visit into the park.
In the park we found plenty of activists to keep the energies of two youngsters in check. The kids rented bikes and rode the trails throughout the park. They hit upon all the mapped out highlights. Eventually they returned with an itinerary of the spots that we should visit on our excursions.
The Tavern on the Green
As we ventured on our walks through the park Tavern on the Green was a welcome stop. After a cool drink and the resting of weary legs, we were off again.
Sprinkles of rain were not going to slow the kids down. The boys enjoyed navigating the radio controlled boats on Conservatory Water.
Strawberry Fields was a must see for me. I have been a life long John Lennon fan. This part of the park is such a beautiful tribute to a fabulously talented man.
We walked along the shore of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. Next we visited Belvedere Castle. Finally, we stopped and just played.
I hope that you have enjoyed my reflections of Central Park. It was such a blessing for me share this beautiful park with my family.
In later travel posts I will share more of our adventures out and around New York City.
Remember to have fun loving and living life to it’s fullest!
