Top 10 Attractions in New York
There are several discount passes that you can buy before you go to New York. Two options are the New York Explorer Pass and the New York Pass. They are very easy to use and can save a lot of time and money. But which pass should you choose?
If you want to have a once in a lifetime experience and see Manhattan from above, you should take a helicopter tour ! For around £165 you’ll fly above the Big Apple, for around 15 minutes.
When you’re in New York for the first time and want to get to know the city, the best way is to take a Hop on Hop off Bus tour. I recommend the tours on the first day (or two) of your trip and just enjoying the ride, that way you get to see everything!
New York City is never short of a sports game or event. If you want to visit an exciting game, I suggest you go to see the New York Knicks play. It’s important that you have good seats but they needn’t be expensive.
Of course, a Top 10 wouldn’t be complete without an observation deck! On the 86th floor of the Empire State Building, you have a wonderful view of Manhattan. I recommend going on a clear day, that way you’ll see most of the city.
The Lion King is one of the most popular Broadway musicals. Seeing a musical will be the highlight of your New York trip. I recommend buying tickets before you travel. Buying tickets in New York is not only more expensive, it can also be a hassle and a lot of the shows sell out.
Real gospel music touches everyone! A lot of people therefore, decide to take a gospel tour. You can choose a tour in Harlem or Brooklyn. If you want, you can even extend your tour to include a real ‘soul food’ lunch.
One World Observatory and its 102nd floor observation deck offers amazing views of New York. The extremely fast lifts, called Sky Pods, bring you up to the top in style, so you can enjoy the ride and the views.
A relaxing, fun way to enjoy Manhattan is by boat. There are a number of tours available; the best value being the Circle Line: Best of NYC Cruise, which takes 2.5 hours.
Take a dinner cruise to experience the splendour of New York by night! Whether you want to relax on a luxury dinner cruise, or enjoy a dinner cruise with a buffet, there are plenty of options!
