WINNER: Central Park
Central Park is the most frequently visited urban park in the United States with 42 million visits each year to its 843 acres of sheer beauty. The park is home to ballfields and playgrounds, statues, a mature conservancy, monuments, bridges, ponds and woodlands. You’ll find endless activities and sights to explore.
Fed by a network of springs and mountain streams, Lake Placid is one of the cleanest freshwater lakes in the world. In the summer, it’s a fantastic destination for boating, water skiing, swimming and more. Set up camp at one of several local campgrounds, and be sure to explore the nearby village of Lake Placid, which hosted the winter Olympics twice. You can take a bobsled ride here year round!
