New York . . . When someone says they want to go to New York they specifically mean the city that never sleeps. Although New York is a state, New York City is possibly one of the most well-known cities in America.
With many attractions and iconic sites, it’s easy to see why. New York City is made up of five boroughs, which all sit where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Manhattan being the central hub.
There are so many reasons to travel to this city, and while you are there, so many things that you can do. Here are a selection of some of the popular things that you should add to your bucket list, if you are thinking of taking a trip to NYC anytime soon.
The Manhattan sky helicopter tour
One of the best ways to marvel at this big city is by air and there may be no better way than in a helicopter. It could be deemed as a pricey excursion to take. But it will allow you to see all of the wonders of the skyline and the glory of NYC from a different perspective.
Why not take a cruise?
Another fantastic way to take in the big apple is by boat. There are many boat tours available that can offer you fantastic views and picture opportunities. Even taking in one of the most iconic landmarks, The Statue Of Liberty.
An iconic site, The Empire State Building
No NYC visit would be complete without a trip to the Empire State Building. It also happens to be one of the most known attractions and has featured in many films set in NYC. The observatory deck gives amazing views and it is certainly one of those things that is likely to already be on your bucket list.

From shows that have ran for a while, or new play scripts hitting the theater, you are bound to find something you like.
Top of the Rock
Another place worth a visit is the observatory deck at the Top of the Rock. A recommendation would be to go around sunset where you can see the city twinkle beneath you.
Walk around central park
Central Park is another iconic site to experience, and you could even take a tour. However, many people like to just explore this wonderful park themselves, taking it slowly and enjoying the scenery. It looks particularly spectacular in the snow and winter months.
The 9/11 memorial and museum
No one can take away the sadness of that day. But showing respect and visiting the memorial site will be an experience not to forget.
Have your picture taken at Times Square
Finally, no visit to New York City would be complete without visiting Times Square. The famous intersection has bright lights, advertisements and shops galore. Well worth a visit just to say you have been there and to grab a selfie while you are at it.
