Tick Off the Iconic Sights
One of the major reasons for a visit to New York is the wealth of famous sights, monuments and landmarks that you’ll find. From the vertigo-inducing Empire State Building to the thought-provoking Ground Zero and the hustle bustle of Times Square, there are enough itinerary fillers to keep you going until your feet give in!
Chill Out in Central Park
This colossal park in the heart of Manhattan is a welcome escape from the skyscrapers and busy sidewalks. While you won’t find it empty of tourists, it’s big enough to accommodate everyone without feeling overcrowded. Hire a bike, tour the park attractions or sit back and relax as you look out across the mesmerising NYC skyline.
Tour the Statue of Liberty
Situated in New York Harbour, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognisable monuments in the world. Take a cruise around the harbour, or hop off onto Liberty Island and enjoy a tour of the grounds. Or, for the ultimate experience – and one that offers spectacular views of NYC – head up into the statue’s crown.
Catch a Show on Broadway
As New York’s answer to the West End, it’s essential to reserve a couple of seats on Broadway if you’re a theatre lover. Many of the world’s favourite productions have had stints on Broadway, at one of the 40 theatres found there. Current open-ended shows include Chicago, Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia! and The Book of Mormon.
