  • New York City highlights
  • Empire State Building

    Whether you're looking for King Kong or meeting a sleepless someone from Seattle, the top of the Empire State Building is the place to be. This Manhattan icon has stood the test of time, and embodies old New York glamour, elegance and wow factor.

  • High Line

    What was once an elevated freight train line has been redeveloped into a 1.45-mile-long park, with a walking track that allows a unique perspective on the city below. Take a walk on the high side during your New York City travels, and relax in the tranquility as you watch the hustle and bustle down below.

  • Broadway

    They say there's nothing like seeing a show on Broadway during your New York City vacation, but the thrill is much sweeter when you nab tickets for a fraction of the price. Check out the half-price ticket stalls in Times Square and head to a matinee for a reduced fee. Other budget-enhancing measures include watching dress rehearsals and choosing a seat with less of a view.

  • Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

    America is a proud nation of immigrants and these harbor icons celebrate that fact. Spend a few bucks to take a tour, or do as the locals do and get the best views from the deck of the Staten Island Ferry.

  • Apollo Theater

    Head to Harlem on your New York City travels to see where some the biggest names in the biz (Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder) graced the stage. You could pay a small fortune to watch big-name acts, but if you go on weekly Amateur Night, you can see the stars of the future for around $20.
