Top Things to Do in New York City

Stroll a Park
Venture beyond Central Park to the Highline, Prospect Park, Governors Island, and Bryant Park, near the New York Public Library.

Catch a Show on Broadway
The glittering lights of Times Square draw crowds, but this area is best-known for its Broadway shows; speak to your Liberty Travel consultant for harder-to-find seats like Hamilton.

City of Museums
Visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Natural History Museum, the MOMA, and the Guggenheim, but venture off-the-beaten path for the Frick, the Morgan, the Cloisters, and other gems.

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
While you can see the statue for free on the Staten Island Ferry, this icon is worth a proper visit—just plan well-ahead if you want to visit the crown.

Mingle with the Locals
Spend a Sunday morning in Greenwich Village, the Upper West Side, Harlem, or Park Slope and do Sunday like a New Yorker.
