New York City Tourist Attraction

New York City Tourist Attractions

In addition to touring New York's various neighborhoods, you may want to plan your trip according to the city's many attractions. If you've been to New York before and have seen the popular tourist destinations, you should consider some of the smaller attractions. But first, let's take you through the highlights of a typical visit to the Big Apple.

Main New York City Attractions

Here is a small sampling of some of the main attractions NYC is best known for:

  • Statue of Liberty - An icon for democracy, Lady Liberty held up her torch to welcome immigrants to America over a century ago. Today, you can climb 354-steps to her crown, and whisper Emma Lazarus’ famous poem at the base of the statue: ‘Give me your tired, your poor/Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.’ Leave time for a visit to the Ellis Island Museum and its chronicles of approximately 12 million immigrants that made their way through Ellis Island from 1892 to 1924.
  • Times Square - New Yorkers call this intersection of Broadway and 42nd Street the "Crossroads of the World." It is the most recognized intersection on earth -- millions of people see it on television every New Year's Eve. Some people say it's the best place in New York to people-watch. At night, the illuminated signs in Times Square make an amazing light show.
  • Empire State Building - Built in 1931 in just 410 days, this skyscraper was the tallest in the world for half a century. You'll get a great view of the city from the art deco tower's observation deck.
  • Central Park - Who would have thought that a city filled with people, traffic and skyscrapers, could offer visitors such an incredible natural oasis? The park is full of rolling meadows, trees, water bodies and stone bridges. The best part? It's all free. Sunbathe on Sheep's Meadow, stroll through the Shakespeare Garden, play softball on the Great Lawn or climb up to Summit Rock, the highest point in the park. For a fee, you can visit the park's zoo, rent a boat or take a carriage ride through the park.
  • Metropolitan Museum of Art - If you see only one museum in New York City, the Met, as it is known, should be the one. The museum houses over two million works of art ranging from Egyptian to Medieval to 20th Century.
  • The Museum of Modern Art - MoMA, as it's usually called, boasts the world's greatest collection of painting and sculpture from the late 19th century to the present, including everything from Monet's Water Lilies, Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d'Avigno, and Klimt's The Kiss to later masterworks by Frida Kahlo, Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and many others. Top that off with an extensive collection of modern drawings, photography, architectural models and modern furniture, iconic design objects ranging from tableware to sports cars, and film and video (including the world's largest collection of D. W. Griffith films), and you have quite a museum. If you're into modernism, this is the place to be.
  • United Nations - You can't miss the 188 nations' flags flying high above First Avenue in front of the headquarters of this international organization. Tours take you through the Security Council and General Assembly Halls.
  • New York Stock Exchange - Like many tourists, here you can see where tons of money is made and lost. From a visitor's area, you can observe the world's busiest trading floor, check stock prices on the ticker and hear the famous closing bell.
  • Grand Central Terminal - Sometimes mistakenly called Grand Central Station, this is no simple train terminal. Grand Central Terminal is used by more than 150,000 commuters each day. Refurbished in the 1990s, the terminal is a must-see attraction offering a variety of restaurants, shopping, and ample opportunity for people-watching.
  • World Trade Center site (Ground Zero) - The World Trade Center dominated the skyline of lower Manhattan until it was destroyed by acts of terrorism. The six-hectare (16-acre) work site that has emerged from the rubble of the twin towers has come to symbolize the dreadful events of September 11, 2001 when almost 3,000 people lost their lives. The 1,350ft (411m) World Trade Centre towers were the tallest buildings in New York and symbols of the city’s skyline. Millions now come to pay tribute at the site and witness the devastation from one of the viewing sites.
  • New York Botanical Garden - Located in the borough of Brooklyn, the garden is home to more than 12,000 kinds of plants from around the world.
  • Bronx Zoo - Though outside Manhattan, it's worth the trip to see this -- the largest urban zoo in the United States. The Bronx Zoo is home to more than 7,000 species of animals in exhibits like the Congo Gorilla Forest and Jungle World.
  • Museum of Natural History - Come to this museum to see the famous dinosaur halls and the most technologically advanced planetarium in the world. Kid-friendly exhibits such as a reproduction of a massive blue whale, a butterfly exhibit of over 600 species, and several ‘please touch’ displays leave ample opportunity for learning.

In addition to the featured NYC attractions listed above, there are a number of other exciting and interesting places worth visiting.

las vegas

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 04:08 No comments

Las Vegas, Nevada is a vibrant pulsating city and the largest adult playground in the world. It is a community that was created from the wastelands of the Mojave Desert in Nevada specifically to provide a gambling and entertainment oasis for the titillation seeking residents of post-war Los Angeles. Everything in Las Vegas has been done (or overdone) on a grand and spectacular scale. Along the Las Vegas strip, a black glass pyramid rises over a hundred meters above the desert with a larger than full sized replica of the Sphinx at its entry. Next to it, sits a larger than life castle with garishly colored turrets. Across the street, is a scaled-down skyline of New York City complete with a Brooklyn Bridge and a Statue of Liberty. Beyond that, you can see a half-sized replica of the Eifel Tower, a near full sized replica of the Piazza San Marco from Venice and a large volcano that erupts flames every thirty minutes. In Las Vegas, you often ask yourself, "Is this really a city, or am I visiting some futuristic amusement park on another planet?"

On any given evening in Las Vegas, you will find hundreds of entertainment events such as the renown Las Vegas stage shows, world class sporting events, performances by world famous entertainers plus music, dance and comedy at large and small venues throughout the city. This city never seems to sleep. The frivolity continues long into the night and the serious gamblers continue their pursuit of riches until well after the morning sun has risen on a new day.

San Francisco Tourist Attractions

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 03:04 No comments

Despite the opinions of some locals, there's nothing wrong with being a tourist. Especially in a city like San Francisco, where there's so much to see and do. So how to pare down what's worth your time in this vibrant city that's so full of icons worth seeing? Just refer to our list below.

1. Golden Gate Bridge. In 1937, it cost $0.50 to cross this globally recognizable landmark by car. The toll has since changed, but the bridge's awe-inspiring architecture has not. Experience it for free by walking or biking its 1.7-mile length.

2. Alcatraz Island. Relive history on "the Rock," where you'll stand in the prison cells of notorious criminals like Al Capone. Reach the island by ferry from Pier 33 (the fee includes an audio tour) and visit daytime if you prefer a self-guided experience, or in the evening for a more formal guided tour.

3. Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf satisfy tourists in search of food, shops, entertainment, and maritime views. Savor clam chowder in a bread bowl or watch as street performers of all kinds entertain. The real stars of the show, though, are the hundreds of lively sea lions on the marina's western docks.

4. Lombard Street between Hyde and Leavenworth streets comprises what's known as the world's "crookedest" street (though it's not). Created in 1922 with eight hairpin turns to manage the hill's steepness, it's lined with flowered walkways -- and throngs of picture-snapping tourists. Photos are best from the bottom looking up.

5. Coit Tower, piercing the skyline from the top of Telegraph Hill, is where to get a bird's-eye view of the city. Built in 1933 at the bequest of Lillie Hitchcock Coit, some say the 210-foot tower resembles a fire-hose nozzle that stands in tribute to firefighters. The lobby's vibrant murals depict scenes from the 1930s, and an elevator goes all the way up. If you're feeling hearty, take the nearly 400 steep steps up and down -- and look for the green parrots chirping along the way.

6. More than a century after the cable car system's creation for transportation, the trolleys operate today as more as a tourist attraction -- and they're worth the experience. Sit outside and hang on tight.

7. The neoclassical-style California Palace of the Legion of Honor enshrines an impressive collection spanning 4,000 years of art, including works by Monet, Picasso, and Rodin, including a cast of The Thinker.

8. The Haight-Ashbury intersection, like Woodstock, was a pulsing point of the revolutionary '60s. Today, the Haight retains much of the hippie-bohemian culture of its heyday, despite slight gentrification. Psychedelic history lives on in the homes of Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, take the Flower Power Tour, led by Izu, who has known the neighborhood since its historic prime.

9. Chinatown's 24 blocks are San Francisco's most crowded; they're densely packed with tourist-friendly shops, markets and restaurants. Don't miss the Golden Gate Cookie Factory (on Ross Alley), where every day, two women make 20,000 fortune cookies by hand.

10. Wear orange and black at AT&T Park, where attention-grabbing bay views rival the action on the field. The open-air home of the Giants boasts fan-pleasing sights like an 80-foot Coca-Cola bottle, a giant baseball mitt, and a nine-foot statue of legendary player Willie Mays. Cheer a home run hit splashing into McCovey Cove (where fans on boats try to catch Giants history), order Gordon Biersch garlic fries, and sing classic ballgame tunes.

Las Ramblas

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 23:15 No comments

Las Ramblas is a beautiful and very exciting tree-lined avenue in the center of Barcelona stretching for 2 kilometers from Place Cataluña to Port Vell divided into five sections...Ramblas de Canaletes, Rambla dels Estudis, Rambla de Stan Josep, Rambla dels Caputxins and Rambla Santa Monica.

Coming from Placa Catalunya the Ramblas de Canaletes (Rambla of the Fountain) is the first stretch of this exciting avenue. As legend goes if you drink from the famous Font de Canaletes you'll always return to Barcelona.

Millions of people do return to this lovely city year after year and head straight for the Rambla because it's one of the most exciting avenues in Europe. In the 14th century there was a small stream which ran through the city to the harbor. The dried up riverbed derives its name Rambla from the Arabic word for stream.

Mezquita Mosque and Cathedral

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 23:15 No comments

The Mezquita of Cordoba is one of the world’s most impressive buildings making it one of the most remarkable tourist attractions both in Cordoba and Spain.

Each year approximately 1.5 million tourists marvel at this impressive landmark featuring several architectural styles and uniting religious elements of Islam and occidental culture.

The so called holy cathedral (former mosque of Cordoba) is not only the largest mosque in the entire world, but the largest temple in the world, as well. The building has mammoth dimensions: It stretches across 24,000 square meters and features as many as 856 esthetic columns made of marble, granite, jasper, and other fine materials.

Visiting the Mezquita gives you a glimpse of how it was at ancient times. The Mezquita looks back on more than one thousand years of history. The first beginnings date back to the 8th century, when Abd al-Rahman I planned to construct a mosque instead of Christian Saint Vincent Basilica. The year 785 marks the beginning of Mezquita’s construction that lasted for about 200 years. The first major enlargement of the mosque took place between 833 and 852 under the rule of Abd al-Rahman II. Abd al-Rahman III ordered subsequent reforms, including a new minaret, which was realized between 961 and 966. The third and last of the mosque’s expansions was ruled by Al-Mansur in 987. It was the most significant enlargement that lead, with completion of the orange tree courtyard and the outer naves, to Mezquita’s current dimensions.

The Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 22:39 No comments

An awe inspiring man-made mountain fashioned from a contorted concoction of titanium, limestone and glass. One observer described it as a mass of free flowing forms that seem to have met in a train crash!

Origins of the Guggenheim foundation

However you describe Bilbao's breathtaking Guggenheim Museum, and whether you love it or hate it, this is a building which simply refuses to be ignored.

And that of course was the remit of the great Californian architect Frank O. Gehry who was charged with upholding the Guggenheim tradition of boldly going where no architect had dared to go before in a bid to open the eyes of the masses to art as they'd never seen it before.

It's a tradition which started in 1937 when wealthy American businessman, philanthropist and art lover Solomon Robert Guggenheim established a foundation to promote public appreciation of a “new kind of art in a new kind of space”.

Guggenheim never lived to see the opening of the first purpose-built Guggenheim Museum in New York 1959. The extraordinary swirling pyramid was designed by one of the greatest architects of the 20th century, Frank Lloyd Wright, and shattered all previous notions of what a museum was meant to look like.

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 04:12 No comments

The Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, usually known as the Sagrada Familia is the most charismatic symbol of Barcelona.

The project started in 1882 and it is still today under construction. Current prediction, rather optimistic I would say, states that the Sagrada Familia will be completed by 2040.

Architect Francesc de Paula Villar was initally assigned to the project, however he was quickly replaced by a young architect called Antoni Gaudí who took over the project at the early age of 31. Gaudí completely changed the desing from the initial neo gothic style to a modernist style.

Gaudí died tragically in 1926, he was ran over by a tram, leaving the project uncompleted. His body was buried in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia.

When completed, the Sagrada Familia will have a total of 18 towers, 12 of them will represent the 12 apostles, 4 will represent the 4 evangelists, one dedicated to Jesus Christ and the last one dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

The Sagrada Familia is one of the main attractions of Barcelona and it is well worth a visit. I would also recommend to climb up to the top of the towers as the view of the city is simply amazing. People were allowed to use the stairs in the past, but this is not an option anymore as it was not safe, so you will have to take the lift to the top of the towers (€2.50).

Finally, the Sagrada Familia is not getting any money from government, church or any other institution. Contruction is completely financed by the income form ticket sales to visitors and from private donations.

La Alhambra in Granada

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 02:30 No comments

The Alhambra tour usually takes about 2 h:30'- 3:00 hrs, including the visit to the incomparable nursed palace. The sultans of Granada, built on the top of the "red hill" the wonderful Generalife gardens and the impressive Charles V Palace, added by the monarch as a symbol of the victory on Islam, after 781 years of Arab rule.

A second visit is recommended, as a balance or alternative to the Alhambra. This consist of a walking tour to the old Moorish quarter of the Albaicín, you will get approved away to the mediaeval Granada in its winding and narrow streets.

You will also be able to take the best photo in Granada and probably, one of the best in the world, from the mirador of San Nicolas: the Alhambra with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the background.

Once back in the city core, the tour would ends in the Royal Chapel, burial place for Isabella and Ferdinand the catholic Monarchs, one of the most past sites in Spain.

Museo del Prado in Madrid

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 00:20 No comments

Madrids Museo del Prado is now measured to be home to one of the worlds most formidible collections of middle age art & statue in Europe. Certainly one not to miss during your visit to Madrid.

Housing the Spanish majestic family´s general collection in a appropriate downtown location there is no reason not to visit! Even more so considering that the doors of the Del Prado gallery are open to all free every Sunday!

One has to think that the pieces in the Museo del Prado were initially aquired when Spain was at the height of its power and had many trading links to France and Italy as well as then being the governors of Holland and Belgium. The wealth of the Spanish region at the time can be seen in the sheer variety of pieces that make up the gallery´s permanent collection.
