Central Park (shown) remains an iconic setting for both visitors and residents of New York, providing land untouched from the skyscrapers and traffic that surround it. Inside, you'll feel miles away. Gardens, biking trails, ball fields, skating, boating and even a zoo are just perfect for sunny days.
Of course, New York's iconic Empire State Building is a place everyone must visit at least once in their lifetime. Take the ride up the elevators to the top for 360-degree views of the city.
Last, and definitely not least, visiting the symbol of the city, the Statue of Liberty, allows you to arrive via boat, just as thousands of immigrants did when America was growing. A museum and climbs for views are available here.
