Many people might say that New York is an ugly and dirty city. Its climate is a scandal, its politics are used to frighten children, its traffic madness, its competition murderous, but once you visit New York you realize no other place is good enough.

Why tour New York

When something is the best in the hemisphere, it must be visited, and so when you go to New York, you have no choice but to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I think it is one of the great wonders of the of USA, right up there with the Grand Canyon and the Yellowstone, a place so stuffed with eye-popping treasures that you could spend your entire vacation there and see only a small fraction of its highlights.

But you cannot stay mired in the past. New York has the trifecta of American modern art museums in the Museum of Modern Art (best collection), the Guggenheim (best fun-house architecture), and the Whitney museum (best for cutting-edge contemporary art) and you should visit at least one of the three.

For those who care more about science than art, and require that science be artfully presented, The American Museum of Natural history is a hall of marvels. With one of the finest and most intelligently presented dinosaur collections in the world, and state –of-the-art planetarium, it is a winner with people of all ages.

Of course, New York includes much more than museums in its cultural scene. Its theatres and jazz clubs are the best in the nation, and one night of your New York vacation must be dedicated to being an audience member. Those with higher falutin taste flock in Lincoln Centre for world-class opera, ballet, and classical music.

You will also want to spend some time of your vacation simply walking the city’s teeming streets, staring up at skyscrapers, and visiting the areas where history was ( and continues to be) made- it is an essential NYC experience.
