Take a romantic paddle around the Lake ($20 per hour, cash only)—or let someone else do the work during a Venetian gondola ride (half hour $45, up to six people) at Loeb Boathouse. It’s definitely one of the most iconic things to do at Central Park and can be a romantic setting for a date or an engagement.
Manhattan’s iconic green space (and one of the top New York attractions), Central Park, has a lot of entertainment to offer, regardless of which season we’re experiencing. In fact, you may be surprised to know that some of the best things to do in Central Park occur in fall and winter! While tourists and locals love to frequent one of the city’s best parks for its various lawns, fountains, walking paths, trees and picnic spots, Central Park also hosts major events from epic summer concerts and theater performances to the annual Winter Jam festival. There’s always an excuse to visit, but here are a few of our favorite happenings to get you started.
