Central Park is really a town in and of itself, and one can spend an entire day exploring architecture, trails and other attractions. But, visitors short on time, can still get a taste of the park by booking a two hour bike tour.
For instance, the Central Park Zoo is a five-acre gem that not only houses130 species, but also offers classes and exhibitions. History buffs can ride uptown on the east side of the park to 106th Street to visit Fort Clinton, the place where the British first built a fortification in 1776, following their invasion of Manhattan.
Central park isn’t the only tour, however. Tourists with a little more time in the city can take a customized tour of different areas in NYC or even combine a bike tour with a Liberty Cruise tour, which gives spectacular views of New York Harbor.
