Explore New York.

When you deplane at LaGuardia, all of New York City awaits—starting with Queens. Between the neighborhoods of Astoria and Jackson Heights, you may decide not to venture into another borough just yet and instead stop by the Isamu Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, one of the city’s oldest beer gardens, or a historic Art Deco movie theater. Before hopping on the MTA or picking up your rental car and setting off for another slice of the Big Apple, consider exploring these culturally rich neighborhoods.

There isn’t much of New York City that we haven’t seen on screen—which makes pop-culture tourism a huge draw! Find that diner where your favorite cast of characters had most of their meals, the exterior shots of homes where your favorite television friends lived, or the observation decks and bridges that played hosts to dozens of iconic, heart-stopping kisses. Less into TV and movies, more into theater? Broadway’s for you, then—or maybe an off-Broadway or off-off-Broadway production. There’s a show for everyone playing any given night in New York, from theater to opera to dance to comedy—and more.

Don’t forget to eat! New York is a world-class city for lots of reasons, not least of which its restaurant scene and rich, diverse food culture. Reserve one night of your visit for a dining experience you’ll remember for a lifetime and visit a Michelin-starred eatery. If haute cuisine isn’t your thing, there’s always the classic New York-style pizza option or a street-cart hot dog.
