Visiting any Broadway show is a highlight of visiting New York City. But even if you don’t actually see a show itself, just driving through the area on your bus will be a true spectacle. If you do plan on watching a show, make sure you purchase your tickets several months in advance.

Central Park

Central Park isn’t just a public park, it effectively serves as the center of New York (hence the name). There are many attractions within Central Park alone, many of which you will recognize from the numerous films and television shows that have been filmed here. Examples of places you can see at Central Park when disembarking form your bus include the lake and Strawberry Fields.

The Empire State Building is a prominent landmark in New York. Only the Statue of Liberty is perhaps more recognizable. First constructed in 1931 and one of the tallest buildings in the world, at the top of the building you will be able to see much of New York as well as the states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Fifth Avenue

If you were planning on going shopping in New York City, then you will absolutely have to visit Fifth Avenue. This is the premium shopping area in New York, with numerous famous stores here including Tiffany, Bergdorf-Goodman, Cartier, and the Apple Store. 

Statue Of Liberty

Constructed in 1886 and perhaps the most well known monument in the United Sates, the Statue of Liberty is the tallest statue in the entire world with a total height of a hundred and fifty two feet. From atop the statue on Liberty Island, you will see an absolutely phenomenal view of Manhattan and new York Harbor.

Tickets to see and go into the Statue of Liberty sell out quickly, so you’ll need to buy yours several months in advance. Several bus tours will include a combo package with a ferry or cruise to allow you to see and even go into the Statue of Liberty.
