Be sure to traipse through Central Park, a green oasis smack-dab in the heart of Manhattan's concrete jungle. Stroll down the tree-shaded paths, ride the carousel, and watch experts breakdance and inline skate. Or, you can visit the monkeys and sea lions at the Central Park Wildlife Center—kids can pet goats, sheep, and a pot-bellied pig at the Tisch Children's Zoo. Check the schedule for summer concerts on the Great Lawn and puppet shows at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater. In winter, consider taking a museum break and head to the park for some ice skating!
