New-York is one of the most iconic cities in the world, sitting on the east coast of the United States. ‘The City That Never Sleeps’ is a fabulous place to visit all year round, and there’s a world class range of attractions to keep you entertained.
The first time you go to New York it almost feels like you’ve been there before. This is because there’s so many famous places across the city that you’ve seen lots of times in countless films, TV shows or on the news. From the Statue of Liberty to Central Park, and Times Square to the Empire State Building, New York is packed with familiar sights.
You might even feel like you already know certain aspects of the city’s culture, whether that’s gorging on a huge breakfast in a cosy café, joining the crowds in buzzing Times Square, or seeing a breathtaking Broadway show. Everything starts to make sense as you tuck into a New York strip steak or frozen yoghurt, and venture along streets that have stores made famous by films like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
If you’re a fan of the Home Alone films, then you’ll know how pretty and enchanting New York can be over winter as the city gears up for the festive season. Central Park is simply stunning covered in a layer of snow, although it’s just as great in the summer when you can join the runners and dog walkers along the pathways. Sit down in the grass and watch some local kids play baseball as you enjoy the warm weather before heading to the Meatpacking District for a night out.
