Trot Through Central Park
Central Park Sightseeing now offers a unique way for visitors to tour historic Central Park. Visitors can trot down the bridle trail with their equine companion and experience all the historic and famous sights Central Park has to offer.
The company offers both one-hour ($149) and two-hour rides ($249).
Established in 1853, after the New York State Legislature set aside more than 750 acres of land in the middle of Manhattan Island, Central Park was formed. It is a natural park right in the heart of the city and was the first major landscaped public park in the country.  Visitors enjoy the natural landscaping including lush greens, gorgeous gardens and bodies of water like the lake and reservoir. Central Park also boasts historic sculptures and the architecture in which New York City has become known.
Central Park Sightseeing also arranges walking tours, bike tours and bike rentals, pedicabs and picnics.

NOTE: Airline fees can and often do exceed the cost of your flight! Additional charges now apply to budget and sale rates on most airlines for a carry-on â€‹bag, checked baggage and advance seat assignments. The least expensive fees are charged when these options are purchased during the ticket booking process.  Fees climb higher after flights are reserved and even higher when adding these options at airport check-in. Kayak offers the most up-to-date Fees Chart for all domestic and international airlines.
