If travellers are taking cheap flights to New York City this summer, and it is their first time visiting The Big Apple, they will want to set aside enough time to visit some of the city's world-famous attractions. After all, no trip to New York City is complete without the long elevator ride to the top of the Empire State Building, or a pleasant stroll through Central Park.
As Manhattan also happens to be The City That Never Sleeps, visitors staying in New York hotels will find that there is so much going on at all times, it may be difficult for travellers to stick to their sightseeing itinerary. There is always something new going on in New York City, especially during the summertime.
Taste of Times Square
If travellers happen to be in Manhattan on June 11, they can use their nose to follow the pleasing smells emanating from Midtown. This is where this year's Taste of Times Square is set to take place, according to the event's website. The Big Apple has a reputation for being home to some of the world's best restaurants. Taste of Time Square provides visitors with an opportunity to sample cuisine from several of them, all in one convenient location.
During this event, several notable New York eateries set up shop in Times Square to serve some of their best dishes to hungry attendees. Food lovers who swing by get to chow down on everything from Italian and Asian to Latin and Chilean cuisine. This year, Taste of Times Square has managed to attract an eclectic mix of participating restaurants, including Carmine's, Junior's and B.B. King Blues Club and Grill.
Museum Mile Festival
Just one day after the Taste of Times Square comes to a close, culture-seeking travellers can take part in the Museum Mile Festival on June 12. If visitors to The Big Apple plan on checking out a few of the city's famous cultural institutions, they will want to do so on this day.
According to the festival's website, from 6 to 9 p.m., 10 museums will open their doors to visitors, free of charge. Among the institutions that participate in this event are The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of the City of New York and the Museum for African Art.
