Best New York Holidays

Autumn in Central Park draped in auburn and ochre foliage. The Empire State Building and the other skyscrapers reaching into the clouds. Rows of yellow cabs making their way past Times Square. The Statue of Liberty greeting visitors and locals alike from her island in the Hudson. These images of New York City are instantly recognisable, but nothing compares to exploring the city for yourself.

New York Weekend Breaks

From Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese to Sex and the City and Friends, New York City has featured in so many films and TV-shows that it practically deserves an Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Strolling around Manhattan and Central Park, it can sometimes feel like you’re suddenly making a guest appearance in your own favourite movie.

First-time visitors should start on Times Square at the heart of Manhattan, before making their way across the vast cityscape to see as many of the sights as possible. Gaze across the roofs and spires of the city from the top of the Empire State Building, catch the latest hit musical on Broadway, experience the emotional and beautiful memorials to the 9/11 attacks; explore the expanses of Central Park, lose yourself in Chinatown and Greenwich Village, and then catch a ferry to Ellis Island and Liberty Island. And still you’ve only scratched the surface of things to see in this metropolis.

After grabbing lunch in a classic deli or diner, you can head out to find some more alternative tourist attractions and local sights that are hiding in plain sight once you cross the bridges from Manhattan to some of the other four boroughs. Get coffee at one of the specialist coffee shops that now abound in the trendy Williamsburg area, visit the Queens Museum for an alternative art-experience to the Museum of Modern Art, before strolling past the large metal globe of the Unisphere found in Flushing Meadows. Catch the sun slowly setting over the famous skyline from the aptly named Sunset Park, before making your way back across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan. After eating dinner at a local restaurant, go to the UCBEast for a drink and a spot of stand-up comedy, delivered in a way that only New Yorkers know how to. The sheer enormity of the city means that you’ll never run out of things to do and see in New York. Each borough and every corner reveal something new and interesting, and you’ll find yourself wanting to come back again and again for another bite of the Big Apple.

New York, New York, the city that never sleeps. It isn’t hard to understand why the Big Apple is such a popular city break destination. Every year, millions of people look at New York city breaks for romantic getaways and to check out the sites they’ve seen so many times on the big screen. The lure of America’s most famous city is stronger than ever. In fact, if you speak to us when planning your New York break, we might be able to advise the best way to maximise your flights and budget. How about spending the weekend in New York and then heading over to Massachusetts or DC? Speak to Fleetway Travel to find out more.
