NYC TRIP PLANNER
Welcome to our NYC Trip Planner. Located on the central Atlantic coast of the USA, New York is one of the world's major financial and cultural centres. It is divided into five boroughs, each one a city in its own rite. In the centre of them Manhattan shows off its skyscrapers, including the iconic Empire State Building, which, for decades was the world's tallest building. Surrounding Manhattan are the Bronx to the north, Queens to the east, Brooklyn and Staten Island to the south. Many world class museums, galleries and theatres exhibit their collections and talents in this exciting city, which continues to be one of the top tourist destinations in the world.
Our trip planner can help you save money exploring New York City's many parks, museums, landmarks and other tourist attractions using public transit. Whether you are visiting the 'big apple' for just one day or several weeks, we have an abundance of ideas for what to see and do in NYC. We also feature recommendations for dining, shopping and hotels - everything you need to plan you visit to the 'Big Apple'.
All of the attractions we feature in our New York City Trip Planner are easy to get to on public transit, with most being just a short walk from a subway station. We provide a detailed overview of each attraction complete with photos, video, map, directions and, on mobile, a quick link to real time transit and walking directions making it easy for you to plan your own self-guided tour of the city.
If you prefer the extra convenience of fully guided tours, we feature a wide variety of guided NYC sightseeing tours which are also a great way to see the city.
We've grouped all of the NYC tourist attractions into the following categories to help you find the ones that interest you the most.
