New York is known as ‘The Big Apple’, ‘The City that Never Sleeps’, the largest city in the United States, as well as the most populous city in the country. This mega-metropolis is constantly buzzing with activity; it is the ultimate nexus of art, culture, entertainment, and history. All these are well known facts, but our New York charter bus specialists want to bring to your attention some of the city’s most popular attractions and landmarks, so you know exactly where to go the next time you are in town.

Happy travels! Here is a list of what we consider to be the most important landmarks and tourist attractions in the City of Friendly People.
One World Observatory
The One World Observatory is also popularly known as the Freedom Tower. This massive building towers 1,776 feet over New York, making it the tallest structure in the Western hemisphere. Travel 102 stories to the observation deck in less than a minute. We recommend reserving a window table at the restaurant on the 101st floor for an extended observation period.
Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is arguably the best known New York Landmark, having been widely popularized by Hollywood and pop culture. The empire state building stays open to the public well past midnight, which makes it the perfect way to end a romantic night out with that special someone. No matter what time you schedule your visit, we recommend stopping by the 86th and 102nd floor open-air observation decks, which provide amazing 360-degree views of the city. If you’re lucky enough to get there on a clear day, you will be able to see five states from the observation decks; how amazing is that?
Statue of Liberty
This colossal sculpture is a well-known symbol across the world and the journey towards the statue (by ferry) is what makes visiting this Iconic Symbol so exciting. Unfortunately, the lantern has been closed to the public for over a century now. Nonetheless, you and your companions will get to climb a whopping 377 steps via a double-helix staircase all the way to the statues neck.
It is the Fall season, and we would be errant in omitting the beautiful and colorful, Central Park from this list. The park is New York’s oasis and spans an area of more than 800 acres all the way from the East Side to the West Side. Apart from the magnificent Fall foliage you will get to see at this time of the year, you will also get to enjoy a zoo, a variety of playgrounds, a rowing lake, nature trails, promenades, restaurants and bars, and much more.
