The Big Apple’s attractions are no secret, which is why New York is at the top of the bucket list of so many travellers from all over the globe. From picnicking in Central Park or shopping on Fifth Avenue to climbing the Statue of Liberty and seeing Times Square, this huge US city is packed full of things to do and sights to see.
New York hotels are plentiful and very varied, so there’s a hotel in the city to suit everyone. Whether you’re looking for hotels in Times Square, New York, centrally located hotels in Manhattan, New York or you want to stay in one of the other districts, like the boroughs of Brooklyn or Queens, you can find a hotel to supply just what you want - whether that’s five-star facilities or a basic crash pad to use as a base.
Eating out is one of the big highlights of any visit to The Big Apple. From sampling a bagel with lox (cured salmon) and cream cheese from a corner deli to munching on a big burger with shoestring fries at an All-American diner, there are so many culinary pleasures to be had. There’s a strong Italian influence too, due to the number of migrants that have settled in the city, meaning that New York offers some of the best pizza and pasta on the planet.
From an English-style gastropub to a Michelin-starred restaurant within one of the city’s top hotels, there’s so much dining to discover stateside. Then, the city has all kinds of restaurants offering cuisine from all over the globe. Whether you crave Greek, Thai, French, Indian, Lebanese or Nepalese, you’ll have no trouble satisfying your appetite. You might even stumble upon a genuine speakeasy bar too, if you’re lucky.
New York’s shopping scene is, of course, world famous. The City that Never Sleeps has everything from designer goods to some of the biggest and best department stores you’ll find anywhere. From SoHo to the Meatpacking District and Lexington Avenue to the city’s many famous flea markets, this town has everything you could ever possibly want to purchase.
Beyond shopping, eating and drinking, Liberty Island is a must-do, while the Empire State building is equally statuesque and impressive. Take a Staten Island ferry, and a ride on the subway, and spend an afternoon in Central Park.
