Why is New York the Empire State? Whatever it is you're looking for, from dining and shopping to culture and nightlife, the options here reign supreme. Top chefs around the country trace a root network leading back to New York restaurants. There's theater … and then there's Broadway. Central Park offers miles of eclectic activities (and people-watching), the Metropolitan Museum of Art showcases the world's finest artists, the shopping options on Madison and Fifth Avenues boggle the mind, and the nightlife is legendary. Even the mellower venues, the wine bars, jazz clubs and cafes, offer wholly distinct personalities. One visit simply isn't enough.
Broadway has made it onto the "don't-miss" list with shows that are magical, costumes that are incredible and music that is timeless. Your concierge can help you book shows, but plan ahead to ensure the best seats.
Book a helicopter flight over Manhattan and see the famous Big Apple skyline from a bird's-eye view. Views from up there don't get any better, and it's a quite an exhilarating way to see the city.
The American Museum of Natural History features hands-on activities and entertaining exhibits on ocean life, astronomy, inventions and more. Displays include reptiles, meteorites and an awesome collection of dinosaur bones.
Venturing off the beaten path is the best way to see the city. Head to Brooklyn and meander through the trendy Williamsburg neighborhood. Plan on having dinner here - it's home to some of the city's most innovative cuisine.
Sunshine or snow, a walk through Central Park's "Poet's Alley" is always enchanting. Giant American elm trees line the walkway, creating a cathedral-like canopy. Relax with a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of lemonade and people-watch.
If your kids are interested in biology, chemistry or physics, they'll love the New York Hall of Science. With 450 exhibits, including Rocket Park, Marvelous Molecules and Science Playground, there's a world of fun, interactive ways to learn.

Plan your visit to coincide with annual celebrations: Chinese New Year (February), Shakespeare in the Park (June), Metropolitan Opera in the Parks (June–July), Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Lighting at Rockefeller Center (November) and many more.
Rockefeller Center’s building-top terrace offers spectacular, unobstructed views of Central Park, the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, and more. Visitor lines for the Top of the Rock are typically much shorter than those for the Empire State Building.
One of Manhattan’s most popular parks is The High Line, an elevated, 1.5-mile long greenway that follows in the footsteps of a railroad spur. Located on the west side of Manhattan, the park offers visitors the chance to peer down into the city’s most iconic neighborhoods.
Central Park is home to a zoo, carousel, skating rink, and a Shakespearean theater. Plus, Strawberry Fields: two-plus acres dedicated to John Lennon and an impromptu memorial spot for other notables; it is also the site of 9/11 candlelight vigils.
Each new season in New York offers a different climate and unique beauty. Winters bring a damp chill and often, swirling snowflakes, while summers are typically hot and shining, with noticeable humidity. Spring and autumn are generally dry and mild, but these seasons can be unpredictable, ranging from considerably crisp to positively warm.
