Take a winter walk with me and experience winter in Central Park! Winter is the perfect time to experience a different side of Central Park, especially if you visit after a snow storm.
Have you noticed me complaining about the weather lately?
I just can't seem to help myself. It has been positively frigid here in New York, and I've had a hard time focusing on anything other than the icy temperature and my freezing face!
Thankfully, it warmed up a little earlier this week. Nothing crazy, but two digits are definitely better than one when it comes to winter temps!
I decided to take advantage of the relatively balmy weather (ha!) and go for a winter walk in Central Park. But first, I need a little fortification, so I stopped by Jamba Juice to try their new Cold Pressed Juices.
Since I was planning a walk in Central Park anyway, I stopped by Jamba Juice’s Columbus Circle location. It’s somewhat hidden in The Shops at Columbus Circle, but head downstairs and you’ll find it in the basement at Whole Foods.
Whether you’re visiting New York or a local, it’s the perfect stop before a walk in Central Park, which is just a block away.
After sampling a few flavors and a little debating, I decided to go with Orange Reviver, a mix of oranges, apples, banana, and beets.
After being cooped up due to cold weather, I was ready for a pick-me-up, and this flavor ended up being the perfect choice!
After picking up my juice and warming up a bit, I was ready to face those chilly winter temps.
I headed outside to Columbus Circle and Central Park!
Central Park is so beautiful in winter, especially after a fresh snow.
Everything looks so bright and sparkly, and it’s not nearly as crowded as in summer.
I love all the beautiful bridges found throughout the park.
You might even have one all to yourself on a cold day!
In the summer, this field would be full of people picnicking, working on their tan, or just hanging out.
I was all alone on this day though!
I think my favorite thing about Central Park is how it feels like an oasis from the city.
You may be surrounded by tall buildings and busy streets, but the trees and fields make it feel otherwise.
Have you visiting Central Park in winter? What was your favorite part?
