3. New York
Cool, cosmopolitan, crowded and constantly on the move, New York blends big-city splendor with small-town charm. Among iconic landmarks and towering skyscrapers, you’ll experience a vibrant culture permeating each of the city’s distinctive neighborhoods and boroughs. Follow hipsters to the East Village and Brooklyn to check out indie boutiques, iconic bakeries and trendy coffee shops and bars. Peruse the elegant shops lining Fifth Avenue, admire the cutting-edge art collections at the MoMa and the Met, catch a show on Broadway or sit down for a meal at the latest in vogue restaurant.
But don’t let the Big Apple’s frenetic pace intimidate you from soaking up its grandeur. Wander through the concrete jungle and you’ll discover roaring taxicabs pouring down bustling blocks, fast-paced pedestrians whizzing past on their way to marquee galleries and innovative cocktail bars and Times Square’s neon lights flickering at all hours. And yet, the city’s twinkling lights and chaotic corners also invite you to embrace every New York minute, explore every flourishing enclave and create your own urban adventure.
