The Big Apple might be a big city, but it's easily accessible for sightseeing visitors. And if you thought the Subway was the only way to get around, think again.
On a New York city break there are so many ways to get from A to B, whether you’re in a ubiquitous yellow taxi or a horse and carriage in Central Park, or simply walking. What’s more, a new way for you to get around New York is launching in May, called Citi Bike, which takes its inspiration from Boris Bikes in London!
This self-service bike sharing scheme provides both locals and visitors with easy access to a network of thousands of bicycles. Pick up a bike close to your hotel, ride it around New York’s sights and landmarks, then return it to any of the hundreds of stations to be located throughout the city. They are great for getting around the parks and riding along the waterfront in the suburbs of Queens or Brooklyn.
Plus, travelling on two wheels negates the worry about finding a parking space when you want to stop at a coffee shop for an afternoon macchiato!
