Cross the charming Gapstow Bridge on your way to the Central Park Zoo. Stroll the tree-lined Mall and discuss the literary figures along its path, ending at the instantly-recognizable Bethesda Terrace and Fountain. Cross Bow Bridge on your way to Strawberry Fields and the Dakota to learn about John Lennon’s final day. Pass by Tavern on the Green—you might want to book dinner for later in the evening—or join the locals in Sheep Meadow, where New Yorkers can kick back and relax.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: 432 Park Avenue, 432 Park Ave, New York City, NY 10022-3534

    After meeting your guide at the Latin America History equestrian statues on the corner of 6th Avenue and 59 Street, you enter the park. One of the first things you see is the surviving ASPCA horse drinking fountain sited in 1912. This represents the only place in the city where one can bring a horse to drink water if they happen to have one.
