. If you’re not the type to lie around the beach and relax, and are looking for more action and excitement, then I recommend a trip to New York City. The hustle and bustle of the big city is thrilling and mind blowing. There are endless amounts of things to do, but here are my recommendations:
1. My favorite thing to do in New York City is to walk through the ever famous Times Square. Hundreds of gigantic television screens and shining lights will captivate you from the second you the second you step foot onto 42nd Street. There are huge steps on which you can climb to the top and take in all that there is to see. There is no place else like this in the world.
2. Something else I recommend is a stop at the 9/11 memorial. Paying homage to the terrorist attacks which occurred on September 11th, 2001, this museum has multiple exhibits. There is also a memorial where you can pay your tributes. The two ponds at the memorial represent each of the Twin Towers that fell that day.
3. Another enjoyable thing to do, is take a walk around Central Park. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, and most of the world. It adds a bit of flair to the busy feel of Upper Manhattan. With fountains, small bodies of water, and statues to look at you will see something different every time you walk through.
4. Lastly, to complete your trip in NYC, I recommend seeing a broadway show. This city is host to the best productions in the world. There are hundreds of broadway and off broadway productions. You will without a doubt find something to everybody's liking. My favorites are Jersey Boys, Newsies, Annie, and Billy Elliot.
Overall, a visit to New York City is a very unique experience. There is just so much to do. You will get to see and do things that you can’t do anywhere else. Other activities might include waking up early to catch the taping of The Today Show or Good Morning America, walking across The Brooklyn Bridge, seeing the Plaza Hotel, and stopping by Radio City Music Hall. NYC is a place for all ages and anyone looking for a lot of action, excitement and adventure! A visit here is always worth it.
