Destination Guide – New York City

What better way to experience America than to visit “the city that never sleeps?” New York bursts full of business and historical landmarks and endless attractions and has become one of America’s most iconic tourist destinations that welcomes a regular influx of visitors from all over the globe. Knee deep in rich history and boundless beauty, this vibrant city exudes a real cultural and atmospheric aura; there’s no place quite the same as New York City.

So, go on – why not immerse yourself in the bustling and energetic New York City lifestyle? Here, you can experience the iconic Statue of Liberty, a true symbol to New York City and the United States as a whole. Towering 151 feet over Liberty Island (located in New York Harbor), the statue represents freedom and democracy and was given to the United States in 1886 as a gift from the French government to celebrate America’s 100 years of independence. Bearing a torch of enlightenment and a tablet of law, the statue is a powerful monument that represents the Roman goddess of freedom. Frederic Bartholdi designed the statue and sculpted a crown with seven spikes to represent the Seven Seas. Why not climb the stairs inside the symbolic statue before admiring the picturesque view of New York City?

In New York City, you can also visit the Empire State Building, another must-see landmark. One of the seven wonders of the modern world, this 102-story skyscraper towers 1,250 feet above from the intersection of the famous Fifth Avenue and West 34th Street – you definitely won’t miss it! The building was designed by William Lamb, who managed to compose the drawings of this architectural phenomenon in just two weeks. At the top of the building, you can also admire the views of the beautiful New York City. Visas4USA advises you to book your tickets online (and in advance!) to avoid queuing on the day.

Whilst in the area, you could also take the time to check out the famous Brooklyn Bridge, the pastoral grounds of Central Park, the historical Grand Central Terminal or the Natural Museum of History. You could also experience the bustling, cosmopolitan area of Times Square and enjoy its vast array of shops, fantastic restaurants and endless entertainment centers. There really is so much to do in New York City that you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to experience first!
