People who have lived in Manhattan their whole lives often do not find the opportunity to absorb everything their wonderful home has to offer. This would make it nearly impossibly for a visitor to capture it all in one trip. Hit the highlights and some hidden treasures knowing that this is a city that will never go out of fashion.
New York is known for its shopping, nightlife, and celebrities. While you might end up bustling all over the state to get your fill of the first two, only one place brings you over 200 of the world’s top celebrities in an interactive experience. Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum is a lively event for the entire family to enjoy. Get up close and personal with A-listers including Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez, and Johnny Depp. The museum is not limited to simply big screen stars. Meet your favorite musician, sports player, politican, or political figure. Madam Tussaud’s also performs the scariest live action attraction, however it is not recommended for children 12 and under.
One can’t miss location is the Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan. With the plentiful locations to shop and dine, do not ignore the piece of history, Radio City Music Hall. By simply stepping inside, the beautiful architecture and design will overwhelm you even if there is no performance. The lack of performance may work to your advantage as tours are given in this time. After taking in a show or a tour, venture up to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. Standing 850 feet above street level, you truly feel as though you are on top of the world. If your visit is during winter, you may be lucky enough to see the Christmas tree that has a minimum requirement of 65 feet.
If you are worried you’re going o miss something, consider talking a tour. One of the most highly recommended is New York Double Decker Tour of Uptown Manhattan by Gray Line New York Sightseeing. Each tour guide is rigorously trained in the history and social aspects of Manhattan to give their passengers the most fulfilling experience. In 2 hours you will visit the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Grant’s Tomb, Harlem Market, and The Museum Mile. Of course the tour is not limited to these stops. In just 2 hours you can witness everything and consider which attractions you would like to which you would like to devote more attention.
