Known as the “City That Never Sleeps”, New York City is America’s cosmopolitan concrete jungle, considered the country’s epicentre for dining, shopping and the arts. New York City’s vibrant sights and sounds offer a constant buzz of unforgettable action where its iconic yellow cabs, towering skyscrapers and metropolis sights hold a romantic appeal for even the most intrepid traveller.
If you’re after a dose of culture, take a day to meander through the museum exhibits in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Next, take the ferry from Battery Park to the Statue of Liberty and explore the city’s history on Ellis Island, or see state-of-the-art multimedia exhibits at the World Trade Center site.
Start polishing that credit card, because New York City is a shopping mecca. Explore the city’s flourishing fashion scene with a day browsing through designer racks on shops along Fifth Avenue. If cultural experiences are more your thing, snag a ticket to an award-winning Broadway show, such as The Lion King, Matilda or Phantom of the Opera.
Impressive views can be found at the Top of the Rock Observation Deck, but for a truly unique view of the city and harbour, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset when the skyline sparkles at its finest. A trip to New York City would not be complete, however, without catching a glimpse of the flickering neon lights in Times Square, packed with novelty stores, restaurants and classic NYC filming locations.
Live like a local and leave the city behind in the expansive Central Park or take a walk along the High Line, a converted train track where colourful gardens, food stalls and panoramic outlooks make for a popular hangout spot.
Laid out on a grid system, the numbered streets of New York are easily navigated on foot, where every corner brings forth an array of local shops, restaurants, boutiques and markets to explore.

You won’t need much introduction to New York, so let’s get straight to its bars and restaurants. You’ll find them in all five boroughs, so you can pretty much book New York accommodation anywhere you like. A culinary tour through NYC is also a tour of world cuisines – you can get great Irish ale to go with pizzas at Megan’s Bar & Kitchen, or you’ll taste some of the finest sushi at Hama. For the famous NY food experience, including its famous bagels and lox, you can head to Sean’s Bar & Kitchen, or if you want to hang out in a typical NY high-rise bar, go to the St. Cloud Rooftop. For some of the city’s best restaurants, choose Club A or Boucherie Union Square. Manhattan has the higher density of bars and eateries, so pick New York hotels in that borough, like Shelburne Hotel & Suites.
You won’t be short of things to do in New York to keep the kids entertained on a family holiday. Look no further than a lift to the top of the Empire State Building or visiting the Statue of Liberty. You can also go to the Bronx borough for the Bronx Zoo Wildlife Conservation Corps, the highlights of which are wild encounters with penguins, sloths and even cheetahs. It also has areas: Tiger Mountain, the African Plains and the World of Birds. At the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum, you can see the actual Enterprise space shuttle. The children’s Exploreum here is a fascinating indoor activity zone. And no visit to New York would be complete without taking them to iconic Central Park. You can stay just opposite at Park Central Hotel.
Things to see in New York start with some of its most famous landmarks. A drive over the Brooklyn Bridge will make you feel like you’re in a movie, and Times Square at night is every bit as bright and exciting as you imagine. Theatre lovers have the world-renowned Broadway theatres – you could book accommodation in New York and spend your entire holiday here, there are so many productions. For more high-rise thrills, take a lift to the Top of The Rock Observation Deck, on the 70th floor of the Rockefeller Center. The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met), is another big drawcard, as is the ionic Guggenheim Museum. Add Carnegie Hall, Wall Street and Grand Central Station… the list continues. One of the good hotels in New York to choose here is Millennium Premier, in the Theater District.
The New York Yankees are arguably the city’s most famous ambassadors and probably one of the most legendary sports teams in the world. You can see them playing at home at the world-renowned Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx, while The Opera House Hotel is a lovely place to stay in this borough. Even though the new stadium is a block away from the one that Babe Ruth played in, you can still visit the original stadium site – it’s now the Heritage Field public park. Despite grabbing most of the limelight, the Yankees are by no means the only team in town. They share a fierce rivalry with their cross-town neighbours, the New York Mets – games between them are called the Subway Series. Their home stadium is in Queens.
