New York City, the City that never sleeps, is a place that everyone must visit at some point in their life. And with cheap deals to the concrete jungle in travel agents all the time, there is no excuse to not go across the pond and experience the fabulous City. New York City is recognized world wide for its many landmarks and attractions. And with more things to do in one area than any other place on earth there is so much to do in a New York minute. New York is home to five boroughs, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island, all worth making a visit due to their individuality and diversity.
However, with something to do and see every second of everyday, arriving in the Big Apple for first timers can be a little overwhelming. Where to go? What to do? What to see? Wanting to soak up every single ounce of the fabulous city, some people will really not know where to start when they arrive. New York is the perfect place to visit in any season, winter or summer time, rain or shine, there is always something to do. Visitors can spend their summer days strolling through Central Park eating the famous hot dogs, or their winter evenings walking down Broadway in the snow.
From Times Square, and the Empire state building, to the numerous restaurants and never ending shops, New York City has something to offer for everyone at any time of any day. There are too many places that need to be seen and experienced to mention but obviously there are the not-to-be-missed attractions during any New York trip. And one of the things that should be at the top of the list is the world-famous Times Square, where visitors will test all five senses with the bright lights and food stands on every corner, which must be visited both at night and in the day.
The New York City Skyline is truly breathtaking with the many skyscrapers, rivers and parks and is therefore a must-see during any trip. It is best to take in the view at sunset or sunrise and New York offers two ways to do this with observation decks up the famous Empire State Building and the Rockerfeller Plaza. Out of the two, the Top of the Rock is most definitely recommended as the 360 degree view includes the Empire State Building, making it a perfect place for photograph opportunities.
Of course waving down and having a ride in the iconic yellow taxi has to be on the to-do list. But if the taxi’s are too expensive for regular use then New York City provides an excellent subway service which will make anyone feel like a true New Yorker when travelling between uptown and downtown.
If visitors want to learn about some American history then they can take a boat to the historic landmarks of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island to experience how generations of immigrants arrived in America when seeking a better life.
Without a doubt a trip to New York would not be complete without a visit to the many shops on 5th Avenue, from bargain stores to upscale stores, the shopping scene is a must.
With so much to offer including ground zero, the museums, the parks, cupcake and coffee shops, the famous Madison Square Garden, baseball games, Broadway shows and more, any trip to New York will leave you wanting to go back as soon as you land in England.
