New York

The state of New York is known as the Empire State, and with good reason. As one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States, it has long been counted among the most populous and most influential states.

Overview

Take your pick – Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State Building, world-class museums, Central Park, and so much more – one trip to New York is never enough to cover all the sites that the City that Never Sleeps has to offer.

Each of the city’s five boroughs – Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island has its own tourist attractions, so it’s worth planning your time carefully so you can see as much as possible. The main icon, of course, remains “Lady Liberty” herself – the Statue of Liberty. She features heavily on any tour of the city.

A good way to save money on visits to multiple attractions is to buy an Explorer Pass. This allows you to visit up to seven attractions over a 30-day period, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Rockefeller Center. Your pass will also cover you on several tours, including that all-important trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Tours also encompass air and sea, such as helicopter tours of Brooklyn Bay and several cruises.
