Explore New York.

With all that New York’s five boroughs have to offer, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in the city that never sleeps. You can walk the numbered blocks of Manhattan and get lost in the crowds that set the pace for the New York minute. You could retire to one of the city’s 1,700-plus parks. You could sing along to the latest smash show tunes on (or off) Broadway. Or you could amble the calm, quiet stacks and galleries of this metropolis’s many libraries, bookstores, and museums. Whatever experience it is that you’re after, you’re sure to find it in New York, the most densely populated major city in the US that’s chock-full of sights and sounds in which to delight.

Once little more than an island-bound Dutch trading post, in the intervening three or so centuries New York has swelled to a population of more than 8 million. And within the massive metropolis you’ll find an incredible array of cultures and cuisines. With as many as 800 languages spoken in the city—and probably nearly as many culinary styles being cooked up—you’re sure to see, hear, and enjoy an amazing diversity of displays and celebrations, whether it’s out on the avenues or served up within a restaurant.

If you’re looking to take it all in at once, you can take the elevator to the top of the iconic Empire State Building and see the sprawling city. Likewise, you can recharge in Battery Park before catching the ferry to Liberty Island where, if you choose to ascend the 300-plus stairs, you can peer out from the Statue of Liberty’s crown and, on a clear day, catch a glimpse of all five boroughs at once.

In the middle of Manhattan you can find what some have termed the center of the universe—the world-famous Times Square—and myriad other spots that have dazzled visitors from around the world. But the city’s outer boroughs are also rich with places to explore. From the Bronx’s New York Botanical Gardens to the brownstones of Brooklyn, New York is a city so full of sights that you won’t soon exhaust all that it has to offer. So all the better that New Orleans-to-New York flight options on Southwest® make finding a return trip so simple.
