First stop for many has to be Times Square. This bustling square is the nucleus of the city, with those iconic illuminated billboards fighting for your attention. Just off Times Square you'll find the Broadway theatre district and, whether you choose tickets for a classic like Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera, or a more modern spectacle like Wicked or The Book of Mormon, seeing a show on Broadway, one of the world's most celebrated theatre hubs, is a must.
Shopaholics will love 5th Avenue. Stroll down and pop into Tiffany & Co a la Audrey Hepburn, or make like Rachel from Friends with a spree in Bloomingdales. For those holidaying with lucky little ones, FAO Schwarz, the legendary kids toy store (as seen in BIG) is an essential stop, or why not follow the lead of the NYC cool kids with a browse of the SoHo shops?
Head to the Statue of Liberty for a cultural and iconic day out. This colossal neoclassical structure is located on Liberty Island (a short boat ride away) and it is well worth the visit. Make sure you also visit Elis Island to check out the Immigration Museum – a fantastic social history of New York
The Empire State Building is a must. Open until late, so don’t worry about queuing, the views from the observation deck are staggering. You can see the entire city and beyond while imagining King Kong holding onto the tip of the tower! It’s definitely worth getting a guided tour and try to aim for when skies are clear.
Central Park is a fantastic experience all year round. With a zoo located in the middle that houses all sorts of animals – including polar bears! – a stroll around will make you feel like a real New Yorker. You’ll be met by magical little gardens and shady inlets of incredible flowers and bushes.
With so much to do in New York, it’s hard to pick a few things out. Much of the city centre, though, is walkable, so you’ll be surprised how much you can do in a day. The best advice though is to start each day with a good breakfast – and you can find these all over the city! Enjoy free coffee refills, fried polenta and eggs over easy!
