Everyone has their own reasons for travel. Whether you have to go somewhere for business, to visit family or just to see the world, motivation is motivation. So here’s why you should be motivated to visit New York City!
We love NYC here at ExperienceFirst, so we could come up with a million reasons for you to come visit. But for the sake of time, here are the top five reasons you should visit New York City.
1. The Buildings
There’s a reason you’ll see so many people looking up when you visit New York! The architecture on display in NYC, both old and new, is truly something to behold. Buildings often take on a life of their own due to the passion and vision that goes into their design. Whether you want to see a skyscraper that’s over 1700 feet tall or a church that’s 200 years old, New York has got you covered!
2. The Food
What kind of food do you love? Well, chances are you can find it when you visit New York City. As an international hot spot, NYC is host to culinary experts from all across the globe. Some of the best Chefs in the world dream of coming to the Big Apple to serve up their signature dishes. Even if you’re not a foodie, you’ll still have your choice of tasty treats! The only question then is: Nathan’s or Gray’s?
3. The Theatre
Some of the greatest actors and performers of the last 100 years made their name on a Broadway stage! The Theatre district in NYC (ever expanding as it may be) is home to amazing talent and entertainment. There are shows for every member of the family! And to top it all off, you may get to see someone before they hit the big time! But don’t feel tied down to Broadway. Seeing any theatre in the city is a great notch for everyone’s New York belt.
4. The Culture
As home to citizens from all over the world, New York is a wonderful melting pot. Travel to most corners of Manhattan and you will find groups from various other countries who have carved out their own little piece of the American Dream. In just a 20 minute walk you can see travel through both Italy and China! There are cultural influences throughout NYC and they are perfect for opening your mind to new things!
5. The Experience
This one may seem like a no brainer but it is very important! When you Visit New York City, you are stepping into another world. Another way of life! A life where the Subway can decide your whole day for you (whether you like it or not). Where parades are as regular as a monthly rain. A life where everything is within reach but you still have to work to grab it! It’s true what they say, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.
