You can easily get around New York City, whether it's by bus, taxi, subway, bicycle or foot! In fact, you will get to see so much more when you walk around the city, as you will be able to stop off where and when you want, take a look around you and explore the areas you might have missed if you'd travelled by bus or taxi.

If time allows during your stay, try to sample some of the fantastic entertainment in the city. There's a huge variety of productions to choose from, with something for everyone. Why not head to Broadway and enjoy one of the many shows on offer?

New York City is also a perfect destination to go shopping! Here in the Big Apple you will be able to shop until you drop! But shopaholics beware! Here you will find the famous Macy's Herald Square, Bloomingdales's and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as numerous other stores and shops for everyone.

New York City is perfect for a long weekend break to go shopping or a longer sightseeing holiday. But whatever your reason for visiting this exciting and vibrant city the first time around, you will probably want to make another visit to the amazing Big Apple before too long.
