New York City

New York City-there's no place quite like it.

Unquestionably among the most electrifying cities in the world, NYC is home to more iconic attractions and cultural institutions than anywhere else in the United States. There's simply no place better to experience world-class live entertainment, art, dining, shopping, sports, and much more. You can see Broadway-straight from its source-take in a live TV show taping, explore the world's most beautiful museums, or sample NYC's fabled street eats-and that's just Manhattan. Take a few extra days to wander a vibrant world of international fare and culture in Queens, get a taste of the cutting-edge in Brooklyn, witness the birthplace of hip-hop and authentic Italian cuisine in the Bronx, or soak up sweeping city views from Staten Island.

When it comes to museums, there are more than just the big names (which are definitely worth a visit). A few standouts include the recently renovated Cooper Hewitt, the new Whitney Museum, Staten Island Museum's expansion to Snug Harbor, The Isamu-Noguchi Museum and Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, the Brooklyn Museum and The Bronx Museum of the Arts.

If bustling outdoor events are more your thing, take to the streets for the TCS New York City Marathon, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Rockefeller Center tree lighting, and the many local street fairs filled with shopping, food vendors, and live performances. Every season offers something new and exciting to see and do in NYC. So bring your sense of adventure, your appetite, and a spare suitcase. You'll be glad you did.
