Millions of people visit New York City every year, and in the past few years the city has welcomed an incredible 50 million tourists into its arms.

You no doubt have a huge list of things you would like to see and do while you’re here, but you should also remember that a vacation is also about having a good time.

If for some reason you don’t have the opportunity to visit certain attractions, do not worry. There is so much for everyone in the Big Apple that you would need at least a few weeks to check off everything on your ‘Must-see’ list.

Saving Money

I can bet you have been saving up quite a bit of cash so you don’t have to limit yourself while you’re in NYC, but  if you’d like to make some saving while you’re here, it’s entirely possible. You can find a lot of great deals in various clothes shops and malls. If you’re lucky enough to be here during the January sales then you’ll be able to get even bigger bargains.

Traveling may prove costly, so you might want to think about purchasing a New York City Pass that will let you travel on the underground and some buses for a lot less. This pass is also great at saving you a lot of money on entry fees at various tourist attractions.

Getting Around The City

Because this place is so big, you may want to think about how you’re going to get around New York City. Fortunately there is an incredibly efficient transport system, which ferries millions of people from A to B and back again, 7 days a week.

You have the choice of hopping on a bus, hiring a cab, riding a car in the tube station or even jumping on the New York City Water Taxi. If you feel like walking, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t, but be sure to know exactly where you’re going before you set off. Please note bus drivers ask for the exact fare only, so make sure you have the right money to hand.

Times Square

This extremely well-known part of New York City is home to some of the Broadway theaters, Madame Tussauds and so much more. You will often see tourist staring up at the huge advertisements that seem to come to life on the side of the office blocks or simply watching the world go by. It does get quite busy here, so if you want to avoid the rush I would suggest coming fairly early in the morning and after 6 o’clock in the evening. Times Square is very rarely quiet, even at night, but it has to be seen to be believed.

Street Vendors

There are thousands upon thousands of street vendors selling hot and cold food every single day. In some cases the food may be cooked before your very eyes, but in any case it’s usually quite cheap. These street vendors brave all kinds of weather to make sure you get a quite snack or a delicious bite to eat whenever you feel the need.

Whatever you feel like doing on your vacation, you can be sure that New York City will cater for your taste. If you don’t have enough time to check off everything on that list, you can always do it the next time you come to the Big Apple.
