One popular choice is the American Museum of Natural History. Located on directly across from Central Park and featuring over 36 millions various exhibits, visitors will be entertained for hours. From hands-on exhibits to dinosaur remains, every individual will surely find something to peak their interest in this sprawling educational hot spot.

A quick walk across the street to Central Park offers 843 acres of beauty in the heart of the Upper East Side. One can visit The Central Park Wildlife Center and gain entrance to the nearby Tisch Children’s Zoo for free. The Great Lawn is most attractive to sun-worshippers while the Strawberry Field and “Imagine” mosaic draw fans of John Lennon. Visitors should be sure not to miss the Belvedere Castle and the accompanying view of New York. Another New York park that visitors and locals enjoy is Bryant Park, the largest illuminated park in the world. Bryant Park was home to the first World’s Fair in 1853. Throughout the year the park holds various events including film and musical festivals and fashion shows, and there is plenty to eat from food kiosks and even an onsite restaurant. This piece of history is still a fun and hot spot today.

Considered by many as one of the can’t-miss New York attractions, the Empire State Building attracts visitors year-round to take a peek out of the ninth tallest building in the world. At 1,450 feet, this building offers breath-taking views of New York.  Visitors should be sure to come early, when the lines are not as long. The World Trade Center site is a popular attraction in New York, but many visitors also seek out the Ground Zero Museum Workshop, dubbed “The Biggest Little Museum in New York.” Here one can learn the story of the World Trade Center attacks through artifacts, photography, and audio clips. It is a great place to stop to learn about the tragedy before heading to Ground Zero.

The New York Aquarium was one of the first public aquariums in the United States and its still wowing visitors now, some 100 years later. Located on famed Coney Island and spanning 14 acres of seaside property, the aquarium offers visitors a chance to encounter dolphins, lobsters, jellyfish, sea turtles, and other marine life.

Rockaway Beach in Queens New York draws surfers to with its 3-4 waves, but handball courts, sand for sunbathing and fishing, and conservation areas are big attractants as well. There are also seven playgrounds for the kids and skating and volleyball for active adults. This beach is a Mecca for outdoorsmen in the city. What trip to New York would be complete without a trip to the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island? This 450,000 pound gift from the people of France can be accessed through the Circle Lines ferry.  You can experience a tour of the attraction, or roam the exhibits and concessions on your own.
