See the sights in cosmopolitan New York

Cosmopolitan New York City has been drawing travelers for years, with its endless museums and cultural attractions, fine dining, high-end shopping and thriving theater scene. You'll never run out of things to do here, from boat trips to see the Statue of Liberty up close and elevator rides to the top of skyscrapers for city views, to visits to local parks and zoos around the 5 boroughs. When the time comes to select your New York vacation rental, you'll have your choice of neighborhoods and styles to choose from, whether luxury apartments, classic brownstones or little studios within walking distance of the top sights.

Take a bus tour in New York

There's so much to see in New York and bus tours are a great way to get around the city. Grab a ride in Manhattan and see landmarks like the Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center and the Financial District. Most double decker buses are open at the top, so you can snap photographs as you roll along, or hop off when you want to spend a little more time somewhere, whether to shop for souvenirs in Chinatown or grab some pizza for lunch.

Museum hopping in cultural New York

New York is famous for its many museums and spending some time soaking up the culture is a must. Art lovers can pop into the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a staple since 1880, or the Guggenheim, with impressionist and contemporary pieces in an impressive cylindrical building. Kids will love walking around the American Museum of Natural History, where you can see giant T-rex fossils along with tons of interactive exhibits and 3D films. If your New York vacation rental is in Manhattan, you'll be close to several of these attractions, but the other boroughs have some impressive ones, too, like the Brooklyn Museum for art and the New York Hall of Science in Queens.

Falling in love with the New York seasons

New York experiences all 4 seasons, with summers that can get hot and sticky, and freezing winters that blanket the city in snow. Spring and fall are among the best times to visit, when pleasant daytime temperatures are perfect for exploring monuments and museums and evenings sometimes call for boots and sweaters on the way to dinner and a night at the theater. These 2 seasons beautify the city's parks, with blooming flowers in spring and changing leaves in fall. No matter which season you choose to visit in, you'll want to book your New York vacation rental early, as the city is always a popular destination.

Escape the hustle and bustle in New York

Though New York is known as a concrete jungle, there are still spots to get back to nature here and enjoy the great outdoors. The rivers and bays provide opportunities to get out on the water for boat rides, and many neighborhoods around the boroughs have grassy squares that are perfect for picnicking and peoplewatching in the middle of the bustle. Central Park has trails to walk and jog along on more than 800 acres in the middle of Manhattan, with playgrounds, meadows and fields for the kids to run around on. Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx has riding trails, golf courses and a sandy beach on the waterfront.
