- Empire State Building – Open until 2am every day, the Empire State Building is visited by over 3.5 million people a year. Prices start at $32, but if you’re willing to splurge, you can skip the queues with an Express Pass. For a special experience, go after 9pm between Thursday and Saturday and admire the views to the sound of live sax.
- 9/11 Memorial & Museum – This beautiful memorial to the darkest day in New York’s history is harrowing but a must-visit. Where the twin towers once stood are huge man-made waterfalls, lined with bronze panels inscribed with the names of the deceased. The museum, set seven stories below ground, offers exhibits and information on the disaster.
- Broadway – Broadway is globally renowned as the home of theatre. Made up of 40 theatres in Midtown Manhattan, it hosts some of the biggest shows in the English-speaking world, including The Lion King and The Phantom of the Opera. Dine at one of the many restaurants in the Theatre District before your show of choice.
