New York Tourism and Travel: Best of New York
New York is the ultimate city break destination as far as millions of tourists are concerned. There's fantastic shopping, wonderful restaurants, bars, theatres, museums and world famous landmarks. In the winter you can go skating in Central Park, in the summer you can hire a boat and go rowing on the lake. And all year round there's a great zoo.
Regardless of your family's interests, you will have no trouble filling a week's holiday in New York. The Empire State Building, the United Nations, Central Park with its wonderful zoo, Time Square and its various shops, the bright lights of Broadway and dozens of museums and art galleries. If you get even slightly bored, you can wander around Central Park looking for locations for famous scenes from films, and if you wander a little further you'll usually bump into a film crew. If you're interested in money saving, take care with sights such as the Statue of Liberty. You can spend a lot of money on a boat trip past the statue, but given that boats no longer land on Liberty Island, you might as well just take the Staten Island Ferry. It's free and you still get a great view. While looking at Liberty Island, many tourists will now also take in a trip to Ground Zero to pay their respects at the former World Trade Centre.

- ByThrillistThe Best Bottomless Boozy Brunches in NYCBrunch in New York City gets a bad rap. Some cynics even refer to its bottomless subgenre as amateur hour. To be fair, unlimited sparkling white wine or everclear masquerading as tequila can make any crowd unpalatable at best, and shrieky at worst. But it doesn’t have to be that way. As long as you avoid the dreaded day-drinking hangover, bottomless brunch-time can be as respectable as the more socially acceptable imbibing hour: five o’clock somewhere. As long as you make an effort to stay relatively hydrated, fortify with whatever Benedict, omelette, breakfast burrito, or maple syrup vehicle you ordered to justify mid-morning’s raison d’être, and choose from this list of eggcellent options, you’ll be a brunch pro before happy hour.
