Weekend Getaway in New York City

A weekend getaway in New York City provides an excellent chance to get a taste of a city rich in art, culture, diversity, and even nature. It truly is "the city that never sleeps," meaning there is no shortage of interesting activities.

A city for all the senses

Your weekend break in The Big Apple gives ample opportunity to see the city from above and below. Take a harbor cruise from Lower Manhattan for a unique perspective of the skyline that cannot be seen from the ground. Speaking of above the ground, see an aerial view of the city from the top of the Empire State Building or rise even further above with a helicopter tour.

Take some quiet time to explore the arts at one of the city's many museums. Listen to a guide or take an audio tour to get a deeper understanding of some of the world's finest art, history, and culture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the Museum of Natural History.

You might not think it, but weekend getaways in New York City provide visitors with an opportunity to get in touch with nature. Wander through Central Park, visit zoos, and let butterflies flutter around you at the butterfly gardens. Get close to the expanse of the universe and faraway stars at the Hayden Planetarium.

Stop and smell the roses at the city's botanical gardens. Smell and taste foods from around the world. There are plenty of opportunities to try culturally diverse foods that you might not be able to try anywhere else in the country. Although there are many popular restaurants in the city, some of the best restaurants are small out-of-the-way places that you can search for like hidden treasures.

The list of things to do can go on, but the most important thing is for you to have the best weekend getaway in New York City.
