The Joys of New York

You read about it, you see it in movies, and some of your favorite TV series showcase it: The Big Apple creates an allure that is all its own. If you have never visited New York before, you have more than likely wanted to, or at least wanted to know what the fuss was about.

With so much to do there’s no time like the present to start planning your trip to New York. If you are thinking of biting the bullet and going to visit, take a look at things to do in New York for some excellent suggestions.

The City That Doesn’t Sleep

Whether you are a night owl or love the hustle and bustle of city life, New York has whatever it is you are looking for. Its impressive energy and relentless activity are more than enough to tire out even the most experienced of go-getters. If you do want to seize the day and night, New York has you covered.

In other states and countries, you might find bars open until 1 am or so, followed by a quiet lull into bedtime, but in New York, you can get the sandwich you are desperately craving at 4a m, catch a film at 2 am when you can’t sleep, or even get yourself a fresh doughnut for breakfast. You do not have to work your life around New York, as there are many places open to eat 24 hours a day.

Expansive and Immersive History

New York has a rich history, which you are free to delve into and explore whenever you feel like it. Whether you are interested in the top historical tourist destinations to cross off your bucket list or something a little more niche, such as the haunted history of the city, there will be plenty of information, fun facts, and figures for you to envelope yourself in. It is hard to come away from New York without having learned something – even if you are not actively trying!

The Food Staples

Every country has its food staples, and New York is definitely up there with some of the best-tasting western food you can get. Authentic cheesecake, pastrami sandwiches, bagels, and pretzels are just some of the fresh foods you can get on the go while you are walking the streets of the city. Don’t forget that you can also sit down for a bowl of hearty clam chowder, get yourself a hot dog from a stand on the curb, and enjoy chicken and waffles. Because of the wide variety of staples, there is something that will suit every palate. And if you have special dietary requirements, New York is not short of cafes, restaurants, and bars that cater to vegans and vegetarians as well.

These are just a few reasons that you should make sure New York is on your list of places to visit – you can catch up on sleep when you get back!
