5 Places You Need To Visit in NYC
New York City. The Big Apple. Centre of the Universe. The legendary NYC goes by many names, and is every bit as dazzling as you see in the movies. From Battery Park to Washington Heights to Brooklyn, the city that never sleeps will give you everything, but always leave you wanting more! But in a city with so much to do and see, just how do you structure your trip? Here are five amazing places you need to visit in NYC. You’ll thank us later!
1. Times Square
You just can’t go to New York without visiting Times Square. The beating heart of the Manhattan Jungle; the lights, noise, and buzz will thrill you like nothing else. Queue up for discount Broadway tickets at TKTS, sit on top of the Red Steps, or spend hours in the Hershey’s store. You’re sure to find something to do!
2. Coney Island
Relive the magic and mythology of Old New York with a trip to Coney Island! Check out the many rides and attractions of this peninsular neighbourhood, and think back to the ringmasters and freak shows of over a century ago. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the New York Aquarium while you’re there!
Nothing defines NYC quite like Broadway. Catch all the latest and greatest plays and musicals on the Great White Way, plus a great selection of the most beloved musical classics. For some weird and wacky small-scale theatre, head to the Off Broadway theatres for another fabulous experience!
4. Union Square
On 14th and 3rd, the hustle and bustle of Union Square is second to none. From shopping to food to markets, this fabled courtyard serves as the connecting point of the downtown Manhattan metropolis. Best to visit in December for the beautiful Christmas markets!
5. Prospect Park
You don’t have to stay in Manhattan to have all the fun. Prospect Park in Brooklyn is a glorious oasis away from the high-energy of the city. Not as big or as commercial as Central Park, yet equally as beautiful, Prospect Park is the perfect escape to nature in the Outer Boroughs. Equipped with numerous playgrounds, it’s a great place to relax with the family on a bright spring morning!
