Spring is a magical time in New York City. Layers are getting lighter, flowers are blooming, and New Yorkers are coming out of their cozy hibernation in their 400 square foot apartments! Truly a lovely sight.
The best part about the weather getting warmer is the ability to explore the many beautiful parts of the city forgotten momentarily during the brutal winter. And what better way to quickly travel from borough to borough in this gorgeous weather? Biking, of course!
The possibilities are endless. In Central Park alone, our bike tour covers over 30 attractions! These must-see locations are certainly not limited to this list, but here are a few of our favorite spring destinations to see on bike in NYC.
Cherry Hill – Central Park
At the top of our list is Cherry Hill located in the southern region of Central Park. Cherry Hill is a beautiful picnic and lounge spot year-round, but people flock to see the freshly bloomed cherry blossoms in the Springtime. Just make sure to take your allergy medicine because the pollen is nothing to mess with!
Shakespeare Garden – Central Park
Another Central Park must-see in the Springtime is the Shakespeare Garden, tucked away in the south-central region of the park, not too far from Cherry Hill. We highly recommend visiting Shakespeare Garden this season while the flowers are in full bloom!
Hudson River Greenway
Whoever you may ask about where to bike in the city, Hudson River greenway is always at the top of the list. With two designated bike lanes, you can enjoy a leisurely ride along the water, enjoying an unbelievable Springtime view of the waters and city landscape.
South Street Seaport
South Street Seaport is a must-visit destination in the Springtime. With the cool breeze coming from the waters, the bustling energy from the boardwalk markets and a gorgeous view of the Brooklyn Bridge, you do not want to miss out on this location.
You can tell we are really into scenic waterfront rides, but reasonably so! Brooklyn Bridge is a great biking destination for both tourists and residents. Crossing over to the Brooklyn side of the Bridge leads you to DUMBO, a fun and trendy neighborhood with lots to see and do including Springtime art galleries, food festivals, and a gorgeous view of Manhattan across the water.
