Cross the Brooklyn Bridge
It’s not enough to just go and meet him and take a picture. Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from one side to the other is one of the best experiences you can have in New York. The views of the city are incredible, and from the middle of the bridge you can get some spectacular pictures of the Big Apple.
It is highly recommended to cross it at sunset, to see how the sun hits the skyscrapers of Manhattan and to watch the sun go down until it gets lost in the horizon is an indescribable sensation.
Walk through the High Line Park
The High Line is one of the most sensational walks in New York, walking over the city is exciting, enjoying the nature that mixes with the asphalt is fantastic. This is an essential destination, a well maintained elevated park that will give you a different view of the city.
Throughout the park you will find nature, green areas, fountains, graffiti, art, statues, benches to sit on and a few places to drink and eat. Walking in High Line Park is a pleasure.
Cross the river on board of Staten Island’s ferry
The Staten Island ferry is free and is one of the best ways to get a closer look at the Statue of Liberty without paying a dollar. Another plus to taking the Staten Island ferry is that you can take some amazing pictures of downtown Manhattan as the boat moves away from the island.
Take advantage of the ferry, this is a perfect plan in which you can kill two birds with one stone.
Explore the Central Park
This park will delight your senses, is an overwhelming place and is the most loved park by New Yorkers.

There you can do hundreds of activities, you can walk through the park from north to south, you can also go and have a picnic, rent a bicycle and tour it in its entirety, in short, there are many fun things you can do in this wonderful place.
Walking around Times Square
An activity that you don’t do is like you weren’t even in New York. As you walk around Times Square you’ll see the famous neon signs, visit the fashion shops, shop, see hundreds of street performers, take pictures and feel all the New York excitement that is a bit frenzied, but you should experience.
Go up to the 86th floor of the Empire State Building
This is another essential visit you must make on your trip to the Big Apple and is that you cannot leave the city without visiting one of its most iconic buildings. Once the tallest building in the world, it’s one of the most visited attractions, so we recommend that if you want to go up to the 86th floor, it’s best to buy your tickets before you go, otherwise you’ll have to wait in line for up to two hours.
Another advice to keep in mind is not to go up on a cloudy day, because you won’t be able to see the city. The best time to visit is at the end of the day, at dusk, when you can capture the best postcard in New York with your camera.
To appreciate the beauty of the Grand Central Terminal
A place of unparalleled beauty, this train station is the most famous in the United States and is used by more than 100,000 people every day. Its size, halls, central hall and décor are somewhat majestic, the Grand Central Terminal is a work of art in itself, where you can shop in its many shops, eat in its renowned restaurants and enjoy its distinctive ceiling. It is definitely a must-see on your trip to New York.
Go to a Broadway musical
This is another must in New York, every night there are musicals and plays that will leave you speechless. This is one of the most spectacular experiences you can live, the best thing is to buy tickets in advance as you can find promotions and discounts that will help you save a lot of money.
All the Broadway’s plays and musicals are in other level, it doesn’t matter if you go to a child play or a dramatical play, none of them disappoint you.
Visit some museum
New York is a city full of wonderful museums and you could spend days visiting them all. Some of the most important museums are the MoMa, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum and The American Museum of Natural History. On each of them you will spend a wonderful day, and each has something singular, for example in the MoMa you can find an incredible modern art collection, in contrast, in the Museum of Natural History plants, animals, fossils, human cultural artifacts and much more.
So, going to a museum is a highly recommended plan when you’re visiting New York, you’ll have a lot of fun. Advice is to visit one a day, because trying to go to several museums in one day can be overwhelming and would leave you very exhausted.
Enjoy the multiculturalism of a city like New York City
Visit as many boroughs as you can! Many times, some people when they go to New York usually focus their visit on doing things in Manhattan, but you should keep in mind that this area of the city is only 1 of the 5 districts that have the Big Apple.
Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island are wonderful places where the charm of New York spreads, venture out and get to know what else you can beyond Manhattan.
