As a prominent hub for international finance, politics, communications and film, New York City is widely considered to be one of the most influential cities in the world.
New York City’s multicultural influences can be traced to the immigrant local population that hails from over 180 countries. Today, the city is home to some of the world’s wealthiest celebrities, while travellers are drawn to the unique sights and experiences that can only be found in New York City.
Statue of Liberty
An unmistakable symbol of the nation, the State of Liberty is widely considered a representation of freedom and democracy, and has starred in several prominent Hollywood films, including The Planet of the Apes and The Day After Tomorrow. While here, climb up more than 390 stairs to reach the observation deck that offers you one of the best views of the Hudson. If physical exertion is not your style, you can also experience Lady Liberty through river or jet-ski cruises.
American Museum of Natural History
A timeless favorite with children of all ages, this museum features breathtaking astronomy exhibits and animal dioramas. Children can also view a collection of rare and beautiful gems and ores, and learn all about dinosaurs through the museum’s collection of dinosaur skeletons.
