If you are planning a trip to New York City for the first time in your life, you are in for a huge surprise! Known as the city that never sleeps, it holds true to its name. The night life in New York City is fabulous, and there are hundreds (no thousands) of night clubs, dinner theaters, museums, historical sites, and much, much more for every member of the family to enjoy, young or old.
From Staten Island to Times Square there is always something to see or do. And, don’t forget that world famous New York Pizza! While it isn’t true that there’s a pizza shop on every corner, it isn’t much of an exaggeration. Once the largest building in the world, visit the Empire State Building. Or, ride the ferry to the Statue of Liberty that has been a symbol of freedom for more than 200 years.
|Don’t forget the stores in New York! One of the fashion capitols of the world, the City is famous for its trendy stores. Who could visit New York without visiting the home of the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Of course you won’t be watching any floats, but you’ll see what makes Macy’s synonymous with New York! But that’s just the beginning of store after store after store, each trendier than the last.|
|Home to roughly 8.2 million people, according to estimates by the United States Census Bureau, New York City was actually the first capitol of the United States. It is a city as rich in history as it is in fun and exciting things to do. Whether strolling through Central Park, visiting world famous Chinatown, or touring Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, there is never a lack of something to do. After just one visit to New York City you’ll see why it has been lovingly tagged as “The Center of the Universe.”|
