Vacations to New York State
The Big Apple, the City that Never Sleeps, the Great White Way — in New York City, everything is stacked high, even the clichés. Although you’ve seen its skyline captured endlessly in movies and photographs, the city is always bigger than you can imagine. It’s a canyonscape of skyscrapers and thrumming avenues packed with star-studded theatres, world-class museums and restaurants of every sort. But, you can also visit the city’s quiet residential streets, hole-in-the-wall boutiques and out-of-the-way cafes. Our USA specialists know New York City, from Brooklyn’s brownstones to the leafy paths of Central Park, and we’ll plan your trip around what you want to experience.
Even if you’ve been before, there’s always more to see on a trip to New York City. We can help you get a new perspective on attractions you thought were familiar, including an after-hours tour of the Museum of Modern Art. We can also help you dive into the ever-changing sea of eateries in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg or the Flatiron District with guided walking tours and dining recommendations tailored to your tastes. And, beyond the city’s borders, we can point you toward what New York State has to offer, from the most photogenic views of Niagara Falls to the rural pleasures upstate.
