The eight and a half million residents would agree with any visiting tourist that it is one of the best cities in the world. There is a world of experience that awaits every visitor. There is so much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat. The question is: where do you start? Garden Retreat Spa lists out some of the best things to do in New York City:

Central Park

Featured in movies and TV shows, Central Park should be at the top of every list of New York sights. With 25 million visitors every year, it is one of the most visited parks in the country and is a national historic landmark, that sites right in the heart of the city.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Probably the finest museum in the country, a ticket to “The Met” grants access to The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters, for same day visitation. While it can get crowded, it is worth the visit. Please note that the museum closes for the day on Thanksgiving Day, December 25, January 1, and May Day.

Brooklyn Museum

Museum buffs should not miss this little-known museum that is home to some iconic feminist art and the famous Dinner Party amongst other permanent exhibitions. The museum also runs live performances, guest lecturers, and other performances.
