Classic Things You Must Do When Visiting New York

When taking a trip to the big apple, there are some things that you just have to do. Check out my guide, so you can do all the classic things in the city that never sleeps attractions.


No trip to New York would be complete without a shopping excursion to the famous Bloomingdale's. Popularised by the popular 90s sitcom friends, maybe you'll even see Rachel there? Don't forget to make sure you carry away your purchase an iconic Bloomingdale's brown bag.

Statue of Liberty

It's pretty much a given that you've got to visit the Statue of Liberty if you are in New York. Climbing the statue gives you a fantastic view out across the bay. To save, time, book advance tickets for the crown and pedestal to avoid the queues. The state is located on Liberty Island. Luckily it's easy to travel around NYC. To get there, you'll need to take the ferry, and you can combine it with a trip to Ellis Island as well.

Madison Square Gardens

Probably one of the most famous arenas in the world, there is always an exciting event to attend in Madison Square Gardens. Check out a new Go to watch a basketball game or a New York Rangers hockey game for an essential American experience. WWE wrestling is also a popular spectacle here, book your tickets and foam finger earlier, as this seat out very quick. Or why not grab tickets to one of the big name show,  with acts such as Kanye West, Ellie Golding and Amy Schumer booked for this year alone.

New York Deli

An essential part of any New York trip is going for lunch at a deli. They are well known for their huge range and selection of different sandwich fillings, so there's bound to be something that you're going to like. To go for a quintessential New York experience make sure you choose the pastrami on rye. Try Art's Delicatessen at 20 to 90 Broadway at 82nd Street. Or The Deli at 205 East Houston Street at Ludlow Street. The latter was featured in the film when Harry Met Sally.

My Tips for Staying Safe as You Travel

Staying safe as you travel is really important. It shouldn’t be the only thing you focus on - if you do that, you’ll probably spend your entire travel time a nervous wreck! However, you do need to take some precautions and be smart so that you can stay safe on your trip and enjoy it to the fullest. These tips can help you!

Make Copies Of Important Documents

Making a few copies of important documents and keeping them in a separate place can save you from big trouble if you lose any of your things or forget where you put something. You might never need them, but this won’t hurt.

Research The Area Properly

Wherever you’re travelling to, make sure you research the area properly. Make sure you know the safe areas, and the areas you should maybe avoid. Make sure you’re aware of what to look out for so you can spot a scam. You can find free information on anything from Italian hotels to Crete villas. Do your research so you’re well clued up before going anywhere.

Stay Somewhere Recommended

Read up on places to stay and stay somewhere with good reviews. There are lots of hotels and villas you could choose from.

Know What To Do In An Emergency

Make sure you know what to do in the event of an emergency. If somebody dangerous did approach you, how would you react? Sometimes, it’s best to give them what they want rather than trying to fight them or resist - like your wallet. For this reason, some travellers carry two wallets with them.

Note Down Important Numbers

Write down any important numbers you might need. If you lost your bag with your phone and other important things inside, what numbers would you really need? You’d likely need some for home, and some for the country you’re in.

Don’t Dress Flashy

Dressing in a flashy way is a huge mistake, especially in poorer countries. Even a watch could indicate that you have money and make you a target for scams and things. Dress modestly, and in line with the country you’re visiting. You’ll avoid all kinds of awkward situations if you look like you belong there rather than like a tourist.
