Itinerary

Manhattan Island (which is the main area of New York) is 23 square miles, and being an extremely busy city its important to plan your days so that travelling from place to place is kept to a minimum. This itinerary makes it super easy, as day 1 you’ll be exploring ‘Midtown’ which covers the area around The Empire State building, Rockefeller and Time Square. Day 2 you’ll be exploring ‘Upper Manhattan’, the area around Central Park, and day 3 ‘Lower Manhattan’, the area around The World Trade Centre and The Statue of Liberty.

Day 1

Explore Midtown covering some of New York’s most popular attractions. Our recommendation (if you didn’t want to do both) would be to go up the Rockefeller instead of The Empire State building. The view is pretty similar from both, but from the top of the Rockefeller you get to see the Empire State building right in front of you! End up here before sunset, and even book a table you’re your evening meal.

Day 2

After a morning of checking out the shops in 5th Avenue (even if you don’t want to buy anything, you have to go just for the experience), take some time to relax in Central Park. Make your way to Central Park West and the Museum of Natural History (whilst we’re not overly big on Museums in our Interties, this one is pretty awesome!). Finish the day with even more unwinding by taking a tour of the Roof Top Bars (most of which are in Upper Manhattan).

Day 3

On this day you’ll explore Lower Manhattan. If you want to take a tour of Liberty Island you can, or follow our recommendation by doing a Harbour Cruise instead, as you’ll get close enough to the Statue of Liberty but have better views of it (rather than being right at the foot). Mid afternoon make your way to the 911 Memorial and Museum, allow for 2/3 hours to explore this area. Finally make your way up the One World Observatory (World Trade Centre) for sunset. When you come down you’ll experience the 911 memorial pools lit up at night.

Day 4

If you haven’t already, use this day to do a tour of Manhattan.  If you can afford it, and if you do this in only one city in the world, a Helicopter tour of New York is a must! You could even complete the circuit of the Big Bus tour, and go over to see Brooklyn.
