My Friday Five topic this week is My Favorite Things To Do in NYC
It’s no secret that I love NYC and I try to visit as often as I can. When I go, I like to be active. So here are my 5 favorites:
- Run In Central Park
You can either take a City Running Tour where you have a guide who tells the history of what you are seeing while you run….
or you can get a map and run around the park on your own. You do have to go back many times. The park is HUGE!!!
Either way, you must do it.
2. Take a Food Tour
There are quite a few that your can take. I have done Greenwich Village and Little Italy with Best Tours (2 hour tours) and NoHo/Nolita with Foods of New York (3 hour tours). All were excellent. You walk, learn about the history and culture of the area and EAT!! I can’t wait to do another.
3. Run a Race
4. Visit a Museum
Don’t worry, the museums are large and you will get a lot of walking in.
My favorites are:
Here is a complete list of ALL the NYC museums – https://www.ny.com/museums/all.museums.html
5. Take a Boat Ride
Okay, you don’t get a lot of exercise on the boat but you can walk around when you get off.
The most popular one is the Circle Line Cruise to see the Statue of Liberty and or Ellis Island.
I love taking the Staten Island Ferry (and it’s FREE).
There are also boats that you can eat on such as the North River Lobster Company.
I could keep on going and going but I’ll just add one more:
6. Walk the streets or the High Line and people watch.
I’m linking up with three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC . Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
Happy Running! Have you done any of the above in NYC? Anything else to add as your favorite?
