The City that never sleeps - The Big Apple

With a globally recognizable skyline and 8.4 million people who call it home, New York City is bursting with diversity and excitement – from the iconic attractions you’ve seen on TV and in the movies to hidden gems waiting to be uncovered.

It’s a cliché to say that New York is the “city that never sleeps,” but it’s true. No matter what you’re looking for – karaoke, live music, dancing – you can find it at all hours. See the New York Yankees’ historic home ballpark, head to Madison Square Garden to catch an ice hockey match, basketball game or concert, the city offers more than any city in the US.

New York City Attractions

You’ve seen them a million times in the movies, but there’s nothing like taking in these quintessential New York City landmarks in person. First stop, a tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, capped with a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry for stellar views of both.

Immerse yourself in the bustle and bright lights of Times Square followed by the incomparable spectacle of a Broadway show – both experiences that you can’t find anywhere else but NYC. Explore Rockefeller Center, and take a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Experience Grand Central Terminal, a unique architectural gem and the city’s major transportation hub.

Is New York family friendly?

YES! There’s plenty for families too: Visit Brooklyn’s nostalgic beach neighborhood Coney Island to stroll the boardwalk and enjoy amusement park rides. At Bronx Zoo, the USA’s largest metropolitan zoo, you’ll see everything from American bison to baboons. If shopping is more your style, the five boroughs are brimming with department stores, boutiques, showrooms and vintage havens.

Museums in New York

Culture buffs love the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art’s modern masterpieces and the Whitney Museum of American Art’s many contemporary works. Stop at the enormous American Museum of Natural History to marvel at the rich collections on display.

Don’t miss the numerous institutions outside Manhattan. The Brooklyn Museum, Queens Museum of Art, the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Staten Island Museum are all inspiring cultural destinations.

Enjoy New York!
