New York City is an unforgettable city. You'll be blown away by its flourishing art scene, culinary delights, soaring skyscrapers, endless shopping opportunities and lively nightlife.

The majority of New York’s best known tourist attractions can be found in Manhattan. Spend your morning admiring the striking collections at The Met, MoMA or Guggenheim before enjoying incredible city views from the Rockefeller Center’s Top of the Rock. For lunch perhaps grab a pizza slice or a bagel on the go? Your afternoon could be spent browsing boutiques in SoHo or learning the history of Ellis Island. After dark, if Broadway doesn’t beckon, there are an abundance of incredible restaurants and rooftop bars to choose from.

The city’s four outer boroughs, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, have plenty of their own charm. Brooklyn entertains multitudes and the fantastic views of the city’s landscape are unparalleled. Queens' food scene will satisfy every taste and is home to stunning flora at Queens Botanical Garden. The Bronx is the birthplace of hip-hop and home to the New York Yankees. Staten Island, the borough of parks, has miles of beaches, architectural landmarks and magnificent views of New York Harbor.
