47 million visitors plan a trip to New York every year, making it one of the most popular cities in the entire world.
The majority of New York City visitors arrive at one of its three major international airports: John F. Kennedy (Queens, N.Y.), LaGuardia (Queens, N.Y.) and Newark Liberty (Newark, N.J.). Each of these offers rail and road links direct to Manhattan Island, the number one accommodation option for tourists staying in the Big Apple. Once in the city, tourists can utilize public transport to get around, including the Metro subway system, the oldest and largest of its kind in the U.S.A. Visitors may wish to purchase a Metrocard that allows for unlimited travel over a number of durations (e.g. three or five days).
The city’s landmarks are famous the world over, with the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square, and Fifth Avenue providing some of the most iconic sights you’re likely to see anywhere.
The theaters of Broadway attract the best performers and shows in the world, while the city’s professional sports teams, including the New York Yankees baseball club and the Knicks basketball team, are some of the most high-profile on the planet, not to mention a favorite with international and domestic tourists.
Manhattan’s ethnic neighborhoods, including Little Italy and Chinatown, offer a diverse mix of cultures and cuisine, while the world-famous Central Park is the perfect place to unwind. The city’s numerous museums and galleries are also highly sought after.
While the majority of tourists arrive during the warmer summer months, New York in the winter takes on a whole other charm, one that entices visitors back time and again.
With so much to see and do in the city, advanced New York trip planning is essential to making the most of your time.
