We went to Central Park on a Saturday morning, we hired bikes and set off round the outside track. The brilliant thing about weekends is that apart from police cars and bin lorries, there is no other traffic, so you can cycle round safely. Once we had explored round the edge, we took the bikes back and hunted out some of the statues in the park, because we had already cycled round the edge, we had a pretty good idea of where things were. This had to be one of the best things we did during our trip, the park is so beautiful and it was lovely to see so many people enjoying the park.

Brilliant atmosphere for a stroll - we caught a jazz school orchestra practise, a giant bubble blowing man and the afrobat gig - NYC s cheapest n best way to spend an afternoon ! Tail ended it with a visit to the apple store near by .. Quite a landmark in itself.

Green, space, air, what's not to like? Personally, I'd avoid the horse and cartridge thing - bit too twee? Take the kids for walk to the natural history museum thriugh the park and bring a picnic to sit and have on the way.
