Big Apple

Traveling is one of the best hobbies to have for the simple reason that you can’t run out of things to visit. Traveling is fun and there is always plenty of exploring to do; whether you’re checking out, looking into visiting Natchez or New York. Today we’re taking a look at the New York City, one of the biggest cities in the world. You can expect to choose from quite a few attractions since it’s not just big, it’s also old and full of history. So here are top things to do while in the Big Apple.

Visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Visiting a museum might not have been on your priority list but this isn’t just any museum. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a place where 5000 thousand years worth of history collide in millions (2 million to be more precise) art pieces. It’s definitely a place for those passionate about both art and history.

Go down in Time Square

Time Square is an iconic landmark in its own right so if you’re in New York City you just have to go see it for yourself. You’ve definitely seen it in movies and other media, but it’s a completely different experience when you’re right there, in the middle of the crowd. It’s definitely a chaotic place as well, where you can expect your body to be pushed into overdrive due to all the things that attract your attention at the same time. From the huge crowds making their way from one side to the other, to the different events or manifestations in the streets, to the infinite number of billboards and publicity display panels, there are loads of colors and sounds all mixing into one big boom.

Climb the Empire State Building

Of course, we mean climb it from the inside, not Spider-Man your way to the top. The Empire State Building is another iconic landmark that pretty much defines New York but also represents a pure portion of America’s essence. The Empire State Building passed the 100th mark when it comes to how many floors it has, and the higher you go, the more breath taking the view becomes. Those who make it all the way to the 102nd floor are rewarded with a truly incredible oversight of the city. That’s the kind of mental picture that never leaves you, and that’s also probably why the Empire State Building is the most popular place for tourists to visit in the Big Apple.
