The Top 10 Must Do’s in New York City

November 19th, 2022

New York City is literally jam-packed. It is the most populous city in the United States with over 8 million people living in the city. The city is also a prime metropolitan area and it one of the most-sought destinations in the world.

When in New York, you shouldn’t miss out on these:

#10: Hop on Board a Double Decker Bus

See the big city the true New Yorker way — a double-decker bus. Double-decker bus city tours are one of the best ways to go sightseeing. What’s good about them is that they are not your typical tours that literally require you to follow a stiff itinerary. There are usually two or three routes with more than three buses serving each route. Each route (or referred to as “line”) has a set of stops at the different NYC tourist attractions. The system is very easy: as a passenger, you can choose among the three tour lines; then you can also decide which stops you’d want to hop off; and when you’re done visiting the place, you can hop on the next bus that serves that line and proceed to the next stop.

#9: Take A Walk in Central Park

Central Park is a 843-hectare public park in the heart of Manhattan. Being in Central Park is literally an escape from the very busy New York environment. Central Park is the most visited park in the country having an average of about 35 million visitors every year.

#8: Indulge in the ever famous New York bagels, cheese cakes and New York Style Pizza. A trip to New York isn’t complete if you haven’t eaten these New York signature dishes.

Traveling In New York – A Complete Guide for Your Next Visit

April 22nd, 2022

New York is such a beautiful city, full to the brim with skyscrapers, shops and so much more; when you visit New York you need to be able to get around as quickly and as cheaply as possible; thankfully this is not hard to do if you know the local transport system.

One of the great methods of travel is the Hop-on Hop-off New York Bus Tour that can be taken advantage of if you have a New York Pass, this pass will let you on the bus that will take you from one place to another without you having to worry about how you’re going to weave in and out of the traffic or whether or not you have enough cash for a taxi ride. Not only does the bus take you to some of the buildings/attractions that New York is most famous for but it also last for not one day, but two which means you can slow down and see New York at your pace.

They are an attraction in themselves and are quite literally all over the place, I’m talking about the huge amount of taxi’s that make their way around New York every single day. If you need to get somewhere then all you have to do is step slightly off the curb and hold your arm out; if the taxi lights are lit up showing just the medallion number it means the taxi is available to take fares, if the ‘Off Duty’ lights are lit up it means just that and if there are no lights lit up at all it means the driver already has a fare; so to summarize all you need to look out for is a taxi whose medallion numbers are lit up and make sure you have the minimum fare on you which is approximately $2.50.

If it’s raining and you cannot get a taxi because they seem to disappear when it rains, or you want to travel further you can always ride the subway. The New York subway may seem pretty scary to those who are not used to it but if you go prepared and have a New York Metro Card with you, then it won’t be that difficult. The subway is a great method of transport with many trains arriving every hour. You do need to be careful though because there are pickpockets, etc. around – but this isn’t just limited to New York, it’s a world-wide issue for subways. Thankfully the crime rate is no longer what it used to be but it’s better to play things safe and not take any risks. Subway travel can be a lot of fun and it is a very convenient and fast method of transport.
