New York is simply one of the coolest places on earth. You just have to experience it for yourself to understand the buzz around the city. It’s constantly alive with activity so there’s always something to do.
Split into five boroughs ‘The Big Apple’ is home to many of the world’s biggest attractions. Make sure you flood your Instagram with The Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square, the list goes on and on. Each borough has its own highlights and it could take weeks to see everything.
Having been used as an iconic location for film and television, you’ll recognise loads of places from your film faves. If you look hard enough, you’ll likely see someone from the big screen too. Grab a selfie with them if you can!
‘The city that never sleeps.’
Nightlife in NYC is something else, a place where everything is always going on, you just have to find the place for what you want. It’s not the sort of place that goes completely wild like many European beach destinations, but it’s so much more than that.
It’s freedom. It’s choice. It’s everything. Whatever you crave at whatever time, you’ll find it here. From smooth jazz and blues bars for quieter drinks with friends, hilarious karaoke bars and live bands, to raves in underground clubs, international DJs and sprawling superclubs. You’ll discover the loud, vibrant and massive, as well as the quirky, crazy and stylish.
You simply need to experience it all for yourself.
