New York City is a highlight for all travellers. Times Square is a must see attraction with its electronic billboards and huge HD screen. Just a few blocks north is Central Park, with great views of the city, and Rockefeller Plaza, well-known for its ice skating and huge Christmas tree.
Use the Subway to get around town: At Grand Central Station check out where so many movies have been shot, and around the corner is an icon of New York – the Empire State building.
For hoops junkies there’s the Knicks and Nets, take a tour of Madison Square Garden and don’t miss the NBA Store on 5th Avenue for some retail therapy. Other spectacular sights to visit in the Big Apple are One World Tower, which stands where the twin towers once stood, the 9/11 Memorial, the center of the finance world - Wall Street, Lady Liberty herself, and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The City that Never Sleeps is a one-of-a-kind destination for tour groups that will amaze you.
