What better way to spend a relaxing day than to combine a bike rental in Central Park with sailing a mini sailboat on Conservatory Water? Both bike and boat are available for rental right here at the park. Why would you combine mini sailing with bike riding? Here are four reasons to consider, and then come up with your own.
A Great Family Outing
The quintessential pastime of model boat sailing will thrill adults and children alike. Although model boating can be a serious adult hobby, children will also enjoy learning the intricacies of successfully piloting a remote-controlled sailboat. New to the sport? Not to worry. Friendly staff members will teach children and adults alike to sail the mini sailboats. Turn the fun into an educational moment for your children by sharing a brief history of NYC model sail boating, which goes back more than 140 years.
A Mini Vacation
Your day out becomes a mini vacation when you add model sail boating and a bike rental in Central Park. You’ll be able to rest and unwind as you watch the small boat glide over the water. Afterward, rejuvenate yourself with a ride through Central Park. The pace is up to you: a brisk ride to energize yourself or a leisurely ride to bring about total relaxation.
Enjoy Old Friends and New
Bring a friend along for a little friendly sailboat racing, or meet a new friend who shares your enthusiasm for model boating. There is a wide range of boaters at Conservatory Water, from the just-for-fun types to the serious model boaters who constantly seek to improve the boat’s appearance, time, or ability to negotiate the waters just a little better than anyone else’s. Who knows? You may find a boating buddy or the love of your life while boating or riding your bike rental in Central Park.
A New Hobby
After taking one of the model boats out for a sail around Conservatory Water, you just may get hooked. Model boating is a great hobby for anyone. Sail a premade boat or build one for yourself. Then bring it to Conservatory Water and sail it all over the lake. This could turn into a favorite hobby for you or for the whole family. Model boating is a wholesome hobby that is suitable for everyone in the family, although you may want to wait until the children are several years old before inviting them to join the fun.
So, pack a picnic lunch and plan to spend the whole day sailing a model boat and riding a bike rental in Central Park. You’ll be glad you did!
