New York City
Architecture, fine art, theater, dining, shopping… what can’t you experience in New York City? Cloud-breaching skyscrapers dot its skyline, while Lady Liberty stands proudly in New York Harbor. Visitors taking a bite of the Big Apple will find endless options in this metropolis’ five distinct boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx, Staten Island). Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and the High Line, a park situated on a former elevated railroad, are just a few of the major NYC attractions.
This behemoth at the nexus of the Hudson River and the Atlantic Ocean is the most populated city in the United States. The character, landscapes, culture and peaks of human achievement that New York City displays make it an indisputably essential travel destination. Alicia Keys may have said it best in her song “Empire State of Mind”: “There’s nothing you can’t do.”
