Visiting NYC – no matter how many times you visit NYC this dynamic city always has something to make you want to come back for another visit. There are some things that are uniquely ‘New York City’ and you just can’t leave the city without doing them. Here’s our list of simple, but fun New York City experiences.
Riding the Subway:
Don’t be scared! NYC’s Subways are actually very safe and they are an easy way to get around this exciting city. The NYC Subway System is one of the best Subway Systems in the world!
Riding a Carriage through Central Park:
Head to Columbus Circle (near 66th and Broadway) and catch a horse-drawn carriage for a relaxing ride through the expansive and beautiful Central Park. Available all year long, but you’ll want to bundle up in the winter.
Riding a Pedi-Cab:
Okay, you may be putting your life in your hands, but riding a bicycle-pulled Pedi-Cab is certainly a unique NYC experience. These amazing drivers manage to peddle their weight, the weight of the bike and Pedi-Cab, and the weight of all the passengers with ease – weaving in and out of crazy NYC traffic without flinching.
Riding in a NY Taxi Cab:
Unless you walk everywhere you won’t be able to avoid this one! This can be a little expensive but, like the Pedi-Cab, it’s real New York.
Eat from a street vendor’s cart:
Though it may not seem appealing at first, the items you can purchase from a vendor’s cart are usually wonderful. Check out the honey roasted cashews and pecans, soft pretzels, hot dogs, and at Christmastime, the chestnuts are roasting on an open fire.
Eat a Deli Sandwich or a slice of NY Cheesecake:
NYC has some of the best Delis in the world. Stop for a pastrami sandwich (impossible to get it into your mouth – it’s so thick!) and top it off with a slice of NY cheesecake for dessert. Amazing!
Eat a slice of NY Pizza:
New York City is as famous for the slices of Pizza that are served from the many Pizza Restaurants that line the streets of this bustling city as the city is famous for the Broadway Shows, Shopping and Sporting Events and Concerts that are hosted by this famous city.
Ice Skating at Rockefeller Center:
If you plan to visit NYC in winter this can prove to be the most magical of seasons and can give you an unforgettable experience.
Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge:
Walking across this stunning bridge is awesome, and when you get to the other side, you can explore fascinating Brooklyn.
Stay at a NYC Hotel:
There are 100’s of NYC Hotels to choose from large, small, cheap and expensive. Consider Times Square Hotels, Hotels near Central Park, Manhattan Hotels, Hotels in Times Square and other areas of NYC.
