Home to Lady Liberty, The Guggenheim and The Museum of Natural History, New York City is a travelers dream come true. With no shortage of places to visit, things to see, and souvenirs to buy, NYC welcomes over 50 million visitors every year.
Traveling to New York City, or to most major metropolitan areas in the U.S. comes with many new rules since the tragedies of 9/11. Boarder patrol and airport security has become increasingly tighter, making it more even more important than ever for travelers to ensure that all their identification is in order.
If your do not have a passport and will be traveling to NYC from outside of the country, completing your passport application online or in person is required. Travelers without a valid passport will not be permitted to enter, or leave the United State of America. If your passport is about to expire, completing a passport renewal form is the best way to ensure you don’t get stuck in NYC with an expired passport.
Because of its size, a list of “Must-See” things is the best way to tackle the city. There are all the obvious “must-see” places like the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and Ground Zero. But there are so many other gems in the Big Apple that you won’t want to miss. It’s always best to do your research, make a list, and accept that you will not be able to see it all within your first visit. A tour bus is always the the best and most convenient way to see all the highlights without the stress of a taxi.
There is no need to book your bus tour in advance. There are plenty of men and women selling bus tours all over Times Square. The best tours will offer you “Hop on, Hop off” privileges and will allow you to see the city from an open top deck.
New York City is one of the most exciting and energetic places in the world. It is overflowing with history, art, and culture. It can be expensive so its best to be prepared, organized and plan ahead. It’s not the place to gets stranded waiting on a passport renewal. With your passport in hand, take a bite of the Big Apple and get ready to have the time of your life.
