Arriving in New York City

From the minute that iconic skyline comes into view, you’ll know you’re somewhere special. There’s an energy and excitement in New York that never really goes away. The City That Never Sleeps really does offer an infinite number of experiences, and sometimes the highlight of your trip is something entirely unexpected.

The best way to approach NYC is with a clear plan which leaves plenty of room for serendipity. If the weather is nice, both Central Park and Prospect Park (in Brooklyn) are incredible urban outdoor spaces, perfect for taking a time-out from the frantic pace. Make sure to take in a museum or two, as New York has an embarrassment of cultural, historical, and artistic riches. Many museums are free or pay-what-you-will on certain days, so be sure to check before you go.
