Frequent visitors would tell you that New York City is not a backpacker-friendly city. This is one of the most developed cities in the entire world, and you may have to shell more than expected. However, that shouldn’t stop you from visiting NYC, which has a charm that cannot be matched in any measure. In this post, we are discussing a few things you must be explore while you are here on your first trip.
As hyped as it is, you have to make time for Times Square, which is busy in the day, but by the evening, this is the arena for entertainment and some of the most-loved Broadway shows. You can find discounted tickets for shows on the same day on many websites, and we recommend that you attend at least one musical or Broadway show.
Birdland Jazz Club is one of the best places in NYC to enjoy jazz. The city has many jazz clubs, which have events and concerts all through the day, and you will find many soothing cool-jazz shows too. Make sure to reserve your place in advance, and yes, do reach at least 30 minutes before the show to get the best table.
Located bang on the middle of Manhattan, Central Park is an experience in itself. The good thing is this is a huge park, so there is something for everyone, but the bad part is you cannot cover it all. There are concerts, live shows and many other attractions to check, and if you want to explore more, consider a carriage ride.
The Statue of Liberty
There is no denying that The Statue of Liberty is the most iconic thing in the city. It is located in New York Harbor, and if you don’t want to climb all the way, just take a few good pictures from the observation deck. You can also choose to take the free ferry ride to Staten Island, which just feels amazing because of the views of this landmark and the Manhattan Skyline.
There are over 80 different and unique museums in New York City, and it is almost impossible to see it all. Metropolitan Museum of Art is a great point for first-timers, and you can also visit the American Museum of Natural History. Note that the NY CityPASS covers both for free, so it is a wise idea to consider the experience.
