Visiting NYC - Parks and donuts

View USA East Coast on divatmotoros's travel map.

After setting up our trailer in the marina we felt a lot of energy in the kids, after a whole day of travelling we all need some activity. So in the evening we walked to Liberty State Park which gave a beautiful backdrop to our sandwich dinner overlooking Manhattan and the Liberty Statue. It was late but there were a lot of families enjoying the warm summer night with BBQs and music. We even enjoyed a nice playground and a less appealing public toilet with the kids.



The next day we planned a long walk themed with "The secret life of Pets", one of our kids favourite. So we started at Washington Square Park and walking there we bumped into an icecream car giving away free icecream, great delight to begin our walk!

We went straight to the dog park to let Echo meet new friends and we also met Adam, who is a great NYC guide and a good friend from Serious Fun Children Network where we both worked.


We used the subway with a large baby stroller and the dog and people were very excited about Echo. At least 20 people asked what breed he was and everyone congratulated how nice he was. He was behaving very well in the difficult conditions, using elevators, very hot tunnels and cool but noisy subway cars.

The next destination was Central Park where we visited several interesting places.


We started at Heckscher Playground, then the Wollman Rink, then the Mall and Literary Walk and Bethesda Terrace.

We also went to the statues of Andersen and Alice in Wonderland which are double serving as climbing opportunities for kids.


Then we returned to the Columbus Circle and filled up with donuts. We completed the day with 16.500 steps which was a great achievement from our 5 and 7 year olds.
