25 Things to do in New York City!

I LOVE New York City! There is so much to do, see, and eat! Below I have compiled a list of some of my favorite things to do (besides eat) whenever I visit NYC!

  1. See Broadway Shows! Probably the #1 reason I love visiting NYC! Some of my favorite shows so far have been Frozen, Beautiful-a Carole King Musical, and Waitress!
  2. Marvel at the beauty of Times Square
  3. Spend some time in Chinatown-maybe if you’re lucky you can even do some bargaining with the chinese salesmen. 😉
  4. Taste your way through Little Italy.
  5. Climb to the Top of the Rock. Click here to buy tickets.
  6. Ride the Staten Island Ferry-you can find the schedule here. It’s even free!
  7. Visit Lady Liberty- but make sure to book these tickets in advance. They go fast! Especially if you want to go to the top of the crown or her pedestal. Tickets can be bought here.
  8. After visiting the Statue of Liberty, make a stop at Ellis Island. The Liberty ferry makes stops here regularly!
  9. Bike around Central Park-you can rent bikes on most every end of the park.
  10. Hike the High Line Trail
  11. Go on a Food Tour. I am currently working on publishing a post about my experiences!
  12. Relax in the New York City Public Library-seriously SO cool!
  13. Rent a boat in Central Park-worth every penny. Information on renting boats can be found here.
  14. Have a Dance Party in the Subway!
  15. Explore the tunnels of Grand Central Station
  16. Spend hours in the Museum of Art-there are several located throughout the city. My favorite is this one.
  17. Take pictures by the Flat Iron Building
  18. People Watch at Washington Square Park
  19. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge
  20. & then Relive your childhood by riding the Carousel!
  21. Stop every five seconds to take cute pictures…
  22. Find the secret Glass water tunnel! Find the address here.
  23. See the Twin Towers and 9/11 Monuments! Seriously so worth it.
  24. Worship in the NYC Manhattan Temple–The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds worship services here every Sunday, visitors are always welcome! Details for the meetings can be found here.
  25. Attend a New York Yankee’s game (Still never done this, but it’s definitely on my list).
