The Whole Loop Pedicab Tour takes you through the WHOLE of Central Park, all six miles of old carriage roads and all 843 acres. If it’s in Central Park and it’s worth seeing, you’ll see it in one of our pedicabs.
Our pedicab tour of Central Park begins with The Carousel, Wollman Ice Skating Rink, and the Mall. After passing the statue of Balto we will make a brief stop at the Loeb Boathouse Cafe used in 27 Dresses and Sex and the City. You may want to have dinner there later. We will also take a walk down to the Boat Pond to see the toy sail boats and the Alice & The Wonderland Statue. After conquering Cedar Hill, one of the steepest hills in the park and a favorite spot for sleds in the winter, we will come to the 3500 hundred year old Obelisk taken from Egypt and dragged through the streets of Manhattan in the late 1800s.
Our next stop in Central Park, requires a short walk into the center of the Park to see Belvedere Castle which has views of the Great Lawn, Delcorte Theater and Turtle Pond – which – true to its name has many turtles. A little further up, we will stop at the Jackie Kennedy O’Nassis Resevoir to watch the battalions of joggers.
After passing the North Meadow we will come to the Conservatory Garden, a small highly manicured enclosure of hedges and fountains. This is how the entirety of Central Park probably would have looked if Frederick Olmsted and Calvert Vaux had not come up with a more novel plan. We will also take a short walk to see the Harlem Meer, the northernmost body of water.
After the Conservatory Garden we can either stay in the park or we can go down Museum Mile past the Guggenheim, 1040 Fifth Avenue where Jackie Kennedy-ONassis lived, and the MET before reentering the park at 72nd Street. We will stop at Cherry Hill to see the San Remo where Bono, Tiger Woods and Dustin Hoffman live among others. We will also take a stunning walk through the Ramble. After a stop at Strawberry Fields and Tavern on the Green, we will return you to the southern edge of the park or anywhere you want to go next in midtown.
