The Big Apple is a top destination for tourist all around the globe and it’s no surprise to me. Why? Well, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting twice and it was beautiful to say the least. From being the city in the US with the most songs and having millions of movies filmed there it inspires the American Dream. So that’s why here is my top 5 list of places to visit
Empire State Building Experience
No visit to New York City would be complete without a stop at this masterpiece of Art Deco design, and perhaps the most famous office building in the world. Opens daily from 8am to 2am.
2. Statue of Liberty
A stirring symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty has been a beacon in New York Harbor since 1886. A gift from the people of France, the Statue was designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by Gustave Eiffel. Box office opens daily from 7:45am to 4:30pm.
Boats departs every 30-45 minutes. First boat departs at 8:30am from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day and 9:30am the rest of the year.
3. 9/11 Memorial
The 9/11 Memorial honors the thousands of people killed in the attacks on September 11, 2001 and those who died in the World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Experience a powerful reminder of the loss of life that occurred at the twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size. They feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America and are inscribed with the names of the nearly 3,000 victims. Opens daily from 7:30am to 9pm.
Don’t forget to visit amazing museums like The American Museum of Natural History or The Metropolitan Museum of Art and obviously major city hotspots such as Time Square, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and World Trade Center.
