5. Northern Central Park


The area of Central Park above Onassis Reservoir is often overlooked in favor of the Manhattan park’s touristy southern realm. Hit the open road and explore the environs of the North Meadow, the Ravine, and the Harlem Meer. This is also a great trek on foot. Before you go, check out the extensive renovation plans that are coming to this northern part of Central Park.
