What a wonderful city New York is. If you haven’t been, then at some point in your life you’re going to have considered it as a holiday destination. New York isn’t really the place for a long stay. It’s expensive, busy, and can be tiring when there’s just so many things to see and do. Most people chose to go there for just a week at the most. That’s enough time to see all the famous areas, and maybe have a day of relaxing and shopping! So, if you’ve never visited New York before, here are a few reason why you should.
For all you fellow shopaholics out there, let’s start with the shopping. You don’t even have to be a shopaholic to be drawn in by the amazing stores over there. Everything is so big, bright, and inviting. If you leave New York with spare money, you definitely didn’t do much shopping over there. As it’s now coming up to Christmas, there stores are made even prettier. It’ll be a truly magical experience if you can get a deal at this time of year. There’s also one of the world’s biggest Disney stores in New York that’ll make any Disney lover feel like a little kid again.
Let’s move on to the things you can do there. First you’ve got the beloved Central Park. If you were a lover of the TV series Friends, then this is definitely going to be on your list of places to visit. You can either just wander round the park, or there’s a zoo there if you wish to do something a little more fun. Then there’s the obvious Statue of Liberty. Such a famous monument that has defined New York for as long as people can remember. You just need to go down to the harbour and book a boat ride over. They’re not that expensive, but see if you can save a bit of money by pre booking. If you go to New York and don’t get the infamous picture of yourself at the top of the Empire State Building, you’re not doing it right. The views you’ll see at the top are absolutely incredible.
If all of this sounds appealing to you, then check out cheap flights to New York. You’ll be able to find a great deal if you do a little shopping around. Be sure to do the same with the hotels as well. New York can be an expensive little trip if you don’t do your homework. It is recommended to spend around a week in New York. It takes 8 hours coming from the UK, so you’ll need a day or two taken away from travelling and trying to get over the jet lag. New York definitely isn’t a relaxing holiday, and you’ll feel busy all the time. But it’ll all be worth it with the memories you’ll make.
We hope this post has inspired you to go and visit the wonders of New York. If it hasn’t, then do a little independent research as to why it’s one of the best states in the US to visit.
