The Best Classes to Take in Central Park

Central Park is one of the most well-known attractions in Manhattan. Located at the center of NYC, this famous park initially opened all the way back in 1857. It now spans over 840 acres and is a wonderful spot to visit for both tourists and locals who want a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the big apple and experience some beautiful nature. Central Park is full of incredible sights to see, such as Bethesda Terrace and Strawberry Fields, but it is also host to lots of great classes that are a perfect way spend your time outdoors.
