Do & See
You’ve seen them a million times in the movies, but there’s nothing like taking in these quintessential New York City landmarks in person. First stop, a tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, capped with a free ride on the Staten Island Ferry for stellar views of both. Immerse yourself in the bustle and bright lights of Times Square followed by the incomparable spectacle of a Broadway show – both experiences that you can’t find anywhere else but NYC. Explore Rockefeller Center, and take a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Experience Grand Central Terminal, a unique architectural gem and the city’s major transportation hub. As panoramic scenes go, NYC can’t be beat. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge for views of New York Harbor or scale 30 Rockefeller Plaza’s Art Deco skyscraper to Top of The Rock, an observatory offering 360-degree views of the city.

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

The floating museum housed inside a nearly 300-meter-long USS Intrepid aircraft is a remarkable monument all in itself, but the exhibits contained inside are no less exhilarating. See the authentic space shuttle Enterprise, the legendary spy jet A-12 Blackbird, as well as the world's fastest commercial airplane. Right next to the Intrepid is the USS Growler strategic missile submarine - the only one of its kind open to public, with interactive games and simulators on board.

The summer months see crowds enjoying outdoor events as well as eating and shopping options, but this huge Art Deco complex really comes alive in winter, when the iconic ice-skating rink and enormous Christmas tree take center stage. Visitors also come to see, and sometimes take part in, the filming of any number of NBC television programs. A highlight here is the (somewhat expensive) trip to the Top of the Rock, from where the views of the city and Central Park are unmatched.
