Outdoor Activities You Never Thought About Doing

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Outdoor Activities Jet Ski Hudson River Skyline

New York is known for being a real concrete jungle, but today I’m going to show you some of the most amazing outdoor activities you never thought about doing in New York! So, see below how to explore NYC in a different way!

People come to New York and end up doing the most common activities and experiences like visiting famous landmarks, restaurants, bars, shopping, museums and galleries, etc. But, not everyone knows the different and pretty special outdoor activities you can though out the city.

I decided to show you 3 of them for you to try out! From customized picnics at the park, to horseback riding and jet skiing in the Hudson River, I’m sure you’re going to have a fantastic time!

But wait! There is just so much more that we can organize for you: rollerblade rentals, bike rentals, bike tours, walking tours, pedicab tours, food tours, secret tours, and more!

If you have time, why not book all three? You don’t need to do anything, just contact us with your request and we’ll set is all up to you and your friends/family.

So many people come to NY and tell me that they’d love to have a picnic at the park. They see so many locals having fun and they want the same experience, but don’t know where to start from or don’t have time to plan it all.

In addition, going to Central Park can be an overwhelming experience due to all the tourists roaming around. But, going to Central Park, with the right information of the best hidden spots for a delicious, unique picnic, can be priceless!

Plus, it’s also a great idea for a special celebration or a romantic afternoon at the park!

Well, we love this experience, so do many of our private and corporate clients, and we’ve written about it before!

You will definitely have a great time! There are countless different options to choose from so contact us for more information and to book the experience!


Horseback Riding

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Outdoor Activities Horseback Riding Central Park

Yes! You can do horseback riding at Central Park too! Different from the carriages that over work the horses, our partner takes really good care of them.

Each horse works a maximum of 6hours a day and are transported to the park properly.

The tours are 1 hour long and pass by the most beautiful spots in the park from Strawberry Fields, where the John Lennon memorial is, to the Reservoir and other special spots.

If you have kids, it’s also a great activity since they have 10min pony rides. Little ones should be 2 years old at least and the guide is beside them all the time.

I rode Oscar, a huge, beautiful, white horse and had a great time exploring Central Park through another angle.

I had heard before that people could rent a jet ski, hop on and enjoy the Hudson River! But, I had never really tried it.

Well, I finally decided to be brave and go try it out, after all, how cool is it to actually ride a jet ski on this famous river?!

We got the ferry at a downtown spot, ride beside the 9/11 Memorial and head to a Marina on the Jersey side. It’s only 15min away from Manhattan. Super quick and seamless.

Each way costs $8/person and ferries leave quite frequently, so don’t worry.

There are 2 types of rides, a shorter one that covers mostly Midtown Manhattan and downtown, and the 2.5h ride that you actually drive around the entire Manhattan island. So cool!

I had a great time! The view is truly spectacular, it’s a priceless experience and the Hudson water is quite, by the way!

Many times we travel to the best places in the world and we forget to register some of the most amazing moments, right?

Or, during that fantastic time, just being responsible for registering everything can be more stressful than pleasant.

And still, during our daily life, moments are created, but not registered.

That said, we are excited to share another BTSNYC Experience with you! Our fantastic partner, an award winning documentary photographer is specialized in family photography, weddings and events.

This Brooklyn-based visual biographer, as she calls herself, will give you another perspective on all the special moments during a NYC trip, or even, during a day in your life (if you live here).

Please contact us for details and to book!


What is Day In The Life?

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Photography in NYC Movies

For people who believe in recording memories of childhood for their kids, our partner photographer will do this job for you. How? By spending a day with your family capturing all the little moments that are the essence of who you are, but might be gone forever unnoticed because of how hectic our life is.

The “Day In The Life” experience is like building the bridge from today to the day in the future when you are going to miss today badly. And, then you’ll be able to cross this bridge in the opposite direction and find a comfort in it.

You’ll be amazed by how much love, hard work and appreciation goes into your everyday.

This session is fully documentary, which means: The Photographer does not give any directions, uses only available light, works extremely hard to capture the right moments.


This type of session is also great for capturing your NYC vacation!

BTSNYC Experiences On Going Photography in NYC Mural

Listening to a street musician in Central Park, dining in Little Italy, taking a ride on Coney Island Wonder Wheel – those are such fun activities to experience, right?! But is it as much fun to also be responsible for capturing the precious memories? We don’t think so!

This session is such an interesting combination of a regular Day In The Life. It focuses on everyday moments that showcase the essence of a family, as well as personalities of each family member. And, a Vacation Session, where the focus is on the city and on travel adventures.

Imagine how awesome it would be to have a professional documentary photographer hanging out with you for a day doing her magic and then having an album full of authentic moments as a keepsake from your trip!


What’s included in Day In The Life package?

Day In The Life package consists of 3 components: “Captured”, “Printed”, “Downloaded”.

Captured” is your session fee that covers photographer’s time and talent during the session as well as post processing.

Printed” is the way your story is going to be presented in print. You can select a custom keepsake box with prints, photo book or photo album. “Printed” is always our clients’ favorite.

Downloaded” are your digital files. You can either purchase a smaller selection of the very best images from your day. Or, get all the good ones that will make you happy!

Please contact us for details and to book!
