What to Do in New York City

What to Do in New York City

Visitors to New York City are never short on fun activities and captivating attractions - the only issue is which to choose first. From its world-renowned theatre district and memorable museums to landmark buildings and lush green space, the Big Apple offers so much to explore and experience.

  • 1. Broadway Shows

    No trip to NYC is complete without experiencing a Broadway show featuring some of the top performers from around the world. From musicals to dramatic performances, Broadway offers it all.

  • 2. Central Park

    Take a break from the bustle of the city with a visit to the tranquil surroundings of Central Park. With nearly 900 areas of greenspace, Central Park offers visitors interesting sculptures, cooling fountains, flowering gardens and even a castle.

  • 3. Statue of Liberty

    It’s no surprise that Lady Liberty tops the attractions list of most NYC travelers. She symbolizes the freedom and democracy America is known for. Walk the over-350 steps to explore the statue’s crown but remember to book in advance as same-day tickets are not available.

  • 4. 911 Memorial & Museum

    NYC’s most somber but unforgettable attraction is the 911 Memorial. With its interactive technology, interesting artifacts, photos and videos depicting the day’s events, the memorial pays tribute to the victims and heroes of that infamous day in American history.

  • 5. Empire State Building

    There’s no better way to capture a 360-degree view of New York City and beyond than heading to the 102nd floor of one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. Be sure to experience this historic structure at night all lit up with colorful lights honoring an event or holiday.

What to Pack

What to Pack

Along with packing weather-appropriate clothing depending on the time of year you’re traveling, there are a few must-have items to bring along on your NYC getaway.

  • 1. Comfortable Walking Shoes

    New York City is best experienced by foot so be sure to pack a pair of your most comfortable shoes to truly get the most out of your time in the city.

  • 2. Portable Charger

    Don’t let your smartphone run out of battery as it’s not only a source for mapping out your route and communicating with your travel mates but essential should any emergency arise. Invest in a good portable charger, keep it with you, and be sure it’s fully charged at all times.

  • 3. Crossbody Bag or Backpack

    While Manhattan is considered a very safe city for visitors, travelers should always be mindful of protecting their personal possessions. A crossbody bag is a great way to prevent a purse snatching or pick-pocketer. If you prefer a backpack, be sure to either carry it in the front or keep valuables hidden deep in the pockets.
