Enjoy Thrilling Activities During Your New York Holidaysby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
New York City is located at the southern tip of New York State in the United States of America and is considered the cultural and financial capital of the world. It is also an important centre for arts, architecture, shopping and dining. The city is also one of the world's trendsetters in fashion and entertainment. The streets of New York are lined with some fascinating architectural wonders, restaurants, cafes, and booksellers. New York City is also known for its vibrant nightlife. Among the most wonderful offerings that the city offers for the locals and tourists after dark are some delicious cuisines served in its elegant restaurants.
Your New York holidays would be cost-effective if you visit in late January or February. However, you'll have to endure the extreme cold of winter season during this time of the year. December is the month of festivities and the room rates of hotels are extremely high in this month. Spring from March to May has warmer weather and is a good time to be in this city for your holiday. The hottest season is summer from June to August and is extremely popular among families as the kids enjoy their break from school in these months. Autumn from September to November is also a good time to visit New York City as this season is characterised by average temperatures and some good deals on room rates of hotels.
Among the attractions you must never miss while holidaying in this city is the Statue of Liberty. It was the gift of France to the United States of America and was built in the late 19th century. If you wish to take a break from your sightseeing trips and relax amidst enchanting natural surroundings, visit Central Park. You'll enjoy some fabulous views of Manhattan from the viewing spaces located on the 67th, 69th, and 70th floors of the Art Deco skyscraper called Rockefeller Plaza. If you're an art enthusiast, don't forget to explore the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which houses numerous masterpieces from a period spanning 5,000 years.
During your visit to Central Park, you can try an amazing variation of rock-climbing called bouldering. It doesn't involve the use of ropes, but you need to have strong muscles to climb the short but steep distances on the vertical surface of a rock. There are three rocks for this activity in Central Park called the Cat Rock, Rat Rock, and Wave Rock. You'll enjoy nature walks on a paved trail in the 196-acre park called Inwood Hill Park.
If you wish to indulge in some mountain-biking, head to the Wolfe's Pond Park. This densely-wooded park is located on the southern reaches of Staten Island and its trails are suited for beginners as well as expert-level mountain bikers. You can have a great time canoeing through the Gowanus Canal and watching some wonderful species of wildlife in action. Located in Brooklyn, Prospect Park would be an excellent place to enjoy some bird-watching, as it is home to numerous species of birds.
