New York City has always been a great place to enjoy. There are so many activities to do that a person can never get bored. I love going to the Big Apple. It is just such an exciting place to be, and every time I go it feels like an adventure. Here are some of the things that I like to do when I am in New York City:
My number one thing to do while I am in New York City is to go to Rockefeller Center especially if it is around Christmas time. For me, Rockefeller Center is Christmas. There is the huge lighted Christmas tree to see, and the ice skaters on the ice. If I am in an active mood I will throw on a pair of skates myself. Across the street is Macy’s which is known for their holiday windows. I also love going to St. Patrick’s Cathedral which is nearby. Rockefeller Center is great to visit during all seasons.
The best part of Central Park in New York City is that you can get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life while being in the park. I love walking through Central Park on a nice spring or fall day. I usually go through the part that has the zoo in it. I love Central Park Zoo. The polar bears are my favorite exhibit to see. Plus, after that I usually go to the Plaza Hotel which is just on the outskirts of it. It is a great place to pick up a carriage ride too.
The Theater District
I have spent some serious time in the theater district of New York City. There is nothing more wonderful than watching a Broadway play. You can plan to see a show in advance, or you can pay that day. If you pay that day, you can sometimes see shows for half price. You cannot go to New York City and not see a play. You would miss part of the New York experience if you did.
New York City has many wonderful museums to see. My favorites have always been The Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. More information on The Metropolitan Museum of Art can be found at www.metmuseum.org, and more information on the American Museum of Natural History can be found at www.amnh.org. I have spent many hours stimulating my mind by both the art and history pieces there. It is where I found my great love for Monet and Egypt. I am sure that if you visit these great museums that you will also find your own passions.
Radio City Music Hall
Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed that one day that I would be able to dance as well as the famous Radio City Rockets. I would sit in front of my television every year and watch them dance their hearts off on Thanksgiving at the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. Being able to see them live at the Radio City Music Hall has always been a thrill especially for the Christmas Spectacular Show. There are other great shows as well there during the year. You can find more information at www.radiocity.com. New York City has a lot to offer, and there is always fun to be had.
