It would be nearly impossible to list all of the activities that you could participate in while visiting New York City… but here are a few choice options that are sure to guarantee a good time.
Take a quick visit to the High Line. What is this High Line that you speak of? An abandoned railway has been turned into a beautiful space with botanic gardens and walking paths. It is busiest on the weekends, so try to visit on a weekday if you can.
Stop by Maoz Vegetarian for counter-serve Middle Eastern food and head over to Central Park with a blanket and a good book. Pass the afternoon under the clear sky watching the joggers, walkers, and picnickers pass you by.
Crank up the humor with an evening of laughs at one of New York’s comedy clubs. Timeout website ranks the most popular clubs in the city and provides details such as location and the type of show you might expect. If you are looking for the top club in the city check out Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in Chelsea. For a full list of the top clubs in NYC check out this article.
Selfie your way through the city with views of the Statue of Liberty, Madison Square Gardens, The New York Botanical Gardens, and the Empire State Building. No selfie tour of NYC would be complete without a few snaps of Times Square and Broadway.
Expand your cultural horizons with a visit to one of New York’s famed museums. Of course, depending on how dedicated you are, visiting museums could take up your entire visit (and your next one, too!). The Guggenheim, American Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Staten Island Museum, and the Museum of Jewish Heritage are just a few that we recommend.
Take a City Tour
View the city with a tour guide. Your call on whether you want to tour by foot, boat, bus, or bicycle. There are over 24 walking tours, 12 cruise tours, 11 bus tours, and 11 bicycle tours. This is by no means exhaustive- we bet there are hundreds more to suit your needs.
