While getting around in New York City, you'll have many things to see and do in its every corner. You can make your holiday truly memorable in this part of the world by visiting its most fabulous attractions. The city is also called fondly as 'NYC' by many of its residents as well as tourists. When you begin your sightseeing trip in New York, you'll come across several restaurants, bars, nightclubs, hotels, and museums that are among the best in the world. Have no worries if you're on a tight budget, as there are many things you can enjoy in this city of the United States of America without emptying your wallet.

Your New York holidays would allow you to visit the Times Square, which is always on the list of attractions that many tourists visiting the city wish to explore. It instantly grabs the attention of its visitors with some giant screens and billboards. As the sun goes down and the city is lit with vibrant lights, this square comes alive with fantastic illuminations. It is also renowned for its 'ball drop' event, which takes place on the occasion of New Year's Eve at midnight. This square is always busy with crowds moving around. However, it has its own unique charm, which you'll notice when you arrive at this particular spot in New York.

If you're an art lover, you'd not like to miss visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Popularly known as 'The Met', it is one of USA's most renowned museums. Founded in 1870, it houses more than 2 million artworks in its permanent collection, which spans a period of about 5,000 years and comprises excellent works of art from ancient Egypt. It is also home to some impressive paintings and sculptures created by most of the famous European artists. You can also get to see quite a few modern masterpieces in this museum.

Don't forget to see the High Line, which is a former railway line converted into a walking trail in recent times. Upon getting here, you'll have the chance to enjoy a pleasant stroll high above the streets of this city. Today, it appears more like a linear public park with many different plants and trees that make your walk a memorable experience worth cherishing. There are several access points to High Line. This charming place in New York City gets quite crowded during the weekends, but the absence of traffic makes the surroundings relatively peaceful.

The Museum of Modern Art is yet another majestic place you can explore while holidaying in this city. It is also called 'MoMA' by many of the city's residents. This museum is located in Midtown Manhattan and is among the largest museums of modern art in the world. It is visited by millions of art lovers and tourists every year to witness a wonderful collection of contemporary art, which includes works from many different fields, such as print, design, photography, art and architecture. The library of this museum contains thousands of books and other important archives.
