New York City tourism is and will probably always be booming. Tourists flock to Manhattan every year to take in the sites, including Broadway shows, world-class shopping, five star dining, and of course the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Sure, people do come to New York to see some of the more famous landmarks, but just as many people come to the city for the upbeat atmosphere. When in New York City, you just cannot help but feel the liveliness all around you.

Aside from the usual places to see, such as Rockefeller Center, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Staten Island Ferry, there are loads of little places to get lost in. There is Chinatown, Little Italy, and of course Central Park, all of which allow you to walk around outside and people watch. If you feel your stomach start to growl, there are certainly a host of cafes, diners, and gourmet restaurants to duck into for a satisfying repast or perhaps just a cappuccino and some pastries.

Don't forget to check out Radio City Music Hall and the numerous shops in and around Rockefeller Center. The Rockefeller Plaza is a sight to see at Christmas time, with the beautifully lit, gigantic Christmas tree smack in the center of it all. You can also lace up your skates and hit the outdoor ice skating rink for some holiday fun in the outdoors. The Today Show also hosts numerous concerts in the plaza year round, so you may be lucky enough to catch one during your visit.

Bustling New York City Tourism

If you are itching to visit Manhattan, no one could blame you. New York City is such a huge focal point in North America, as it offers tourists a world of attractions. Manhattan is also home to Wall Street, the entertainment industry, and a huge melting pot of different ethnicities. If you want to visit a city that is culturally diverse, Manhattan is the place to see.
