12 Things to See on Your Trip to New York City


New York, New York… the Big Apple. One of the most iconic cities to ever stand and one of the biggest melting pots of culture and class in the world, New York is a fascinating place to visit and will be sure to provide you with an experience that you will never forget. There is so much to see and do that you could spend an entire trip just wandering the streets of Manhattan, but in order to get the most out of your vacation, there are twelve spots that you absolutely must hit. They’re listed here in no particular order.

1. The Statue of Liberty

Everyone has seen it in pictures or in the movies, but you can’t truly appreciate the beauty of the statue until you see it in person. Take a ferry to Ellis Island and tour the statue- the view from the top is amazing!

2. The Empire State Building

Speaking of great views, you’re definitely going to want to take a ride to the top of the Empire State Building. Most famous for its appearance in the film classic King Kong, the Empire State Building is right in the heart of the city and should not be missed.
