NEW YORK CITY

V

isit the city that never sleeps! The wonders of the “Big Apple” will exceed all of your expectations...the fantastic skyline, famous restaurants, hotels and shops to fit any budget, and miles of museums and attractions. Each of the city’s five boroughs has a unique appeal. You can tour Manhattan by helicopter or on a cruise boat that skirts around its shoreline. In Queens, enjoy thoroughbred horse racing at Belmont Park or Flushing Park, home of the US Open Tennis championship. Brooklyn is home to the Brooklyn Museum and adjacent Botanic Garden. Or America’s favorite pastime, baseball, can be enjoyed at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx or Citi Field in Queens. With all this to see and do, it’s no wonder New York is the most exciting city in the world!
