Hey guys. It’s been a while. Well I recently visited New York and wanted to write about it with some advice on what not to miss there so here goes. It’s one of the greatest cities, which is always a whirlwind of activities. Our trip to New York is certainly an experience of a lifetime. Simply mesmerized by the famous sites, historic places, shopping destinations, nightlife and amazing hospitality, we knew we would never have enough time to see it all.
Do not miss the City’s five boroughs which have its own roster of never to miss destinations, some of the best restaurants, amazing cultural spots and gamut of activities to keep you entertained throughout the day and night.
I had a long list of places to visit (not knowing that this was just a drop in the ocean) and successfully made to some of the most famous places. Looking forward to my next trip to spend some more memorable days in this magnificent city!
Spend Some Leisure Moments In The Iconic Central Park
Central Park – how could I even think about missing the most iconic parks in the world?
We spent a lazy afternoon simply walking through the rambles and soaking in the natural beauty and romance of the place. The carriage rides through the iconic pathways which crisscross the Park is never to be missed. There are several attractions within the borders of this park which include the Strawberry Fields, Belvedere Castle, the Lake and Zoo. If you visit Central Park in the summer, do not miss the concerts which take place at regular intervals.
Experience Jaw-Dropping Views From The Empire State Building
It’s a breathtaking view from the 86th floor of the observatory which offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the beautiful skyline. Flexible timings of the building help visitors in selecting if they would like to view the metropolitan scenery during the day or at night. The beautiful Central Park, the Hudson River and The Statue of Liberty – all can be seen from the 86th floor.
Relax Along The Brooklyn Bridge
Take a relaxed stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoy the breathtaking views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. We chose the Brooklyn side and came across some great eateries offering local as well as international cuisine. You can also try the Jet Ski Tour for a completely different perspective as you pass under the bridge.
Visit The Statue Of Liberty
Can your New York trip be complete until you visit the Statue of Liberty? As recommended by friends, we took the free Staten Island Ferry for some of the best views of the lady. One of the most replicated statues of the world, this is a must visit place even if you are in the city just for a day.
Spend a Few Hours In Times Square
I knew I had to be at Times Square to get a feel of one of the most iconic places in the city. If you are a complete foodie and looking for some of the best in local cuisine a visit to Times Square is a must. There are numerous restaurant and some of the best theaters in the city.
The Exciting new attraction of NYC is the High Line. This was actually a former rail line which is now all transformed into a beautiful fun walking trail. We loved the spirit of the place, the hustle and bustle of the locals energized the spot.
New York has lot to offer – there are several places we couldn’t visit though we tried our best. Plan your itinerary in advance so that you do not miss out the top attractions of the place.
