Ways To Spend A Weekend In New York City
23 Sep 2019
New York has long been one of the most popular tourist cities in the World. With a rich heritage in the arts, business, and entertainment, the local residents of this bustling metropolis are fiercely proud of their home, and it’s easy to see why. There are plenty of things to do in New York, though those with only a weekend to spare will want to be particular with the ones they choose. To give you the chance to make the most of your time in this city, this post will be exploring some of the greatest attractions on offer.
Manhattan has a long history when it comes to performing arts. From the comfortable and welcoming jazz clubs, to the hugely popular theatres found on Broadway, it’s easy to find something to sit down and watch when you’re in New York. Broadway tickets are a lot more accessible than they used to be, with most people having the means to buy them for at least one show when they are on their break. There are often more than 200 shows available for booking at any given time, creating a huge amount of variety and enabling you to see exactly what you want.
New York is a very diverse place, with a lot of people coming to the city from all corners of the globe. Love of food is something that every culture has in common, though different parts of the world like to do things their own way, and will bring these methods with them when they move somewhere new. Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and a whole host of other exotic cuisines can be found on the city’s streets, though New York has some signature dishes of its own. Bagels and hot dogs are very popular, but it’s often best to look where the locals are going before you decide where you should eat.
Having been under the spotlight for so long, New York has had a rare opportunity to build up a huge range of sightseeing attractions in a relatively short period. The Statue of Liberty, for example, was a gift from France, and has been an icon of New York since it first arrived in the city. You can climb to the top of this towering monument when you pay a visit. The Rockefeller Center is filled with some of the biggest businesses in the city, and you can find a huge range of museums, galleries, and other attractions dotted in each of the city’s iconic areas.
With all of this in mind, you should be feeling excited to book your weekend in New York. While you won’t have much time on a trip like this, there is plenty to see in this city, and you won’t have to worry about running out of things to do. The culture and spirit of this place is like no other found on Earth, and other cities around the US have a similar charm. Of course, though, they have to be saved for another post.
