New York City is one of those places that everyone dreams about. It’s in all of the movies and is on everyone’s mind what seems like 24/7. For such a tiny little island, though, there’s a million different things to do. There’s no way that you can fit it all into one short vacation (although you can definitely try). With only a few days on your hands, deciding what to do can definitely seem overwhelming, but not to fear! This four day itinerary should provide the perfect starting off point for planning your travels in the Big Apple, and hopefully make your life a little bit easier. So without further ado, here is what I like to call the perfect four day New York City itinerary.
Empire State Building
Start your trip off right by doing one of the most iconic New York City activities out there. Take the trip up to the top of the Empire State Building! The views from the 86th floor are absolutely breathtaking. It’s also a great way to get acquainted with the city you’re going to be calling home for the next few days. If you can, buy tickets ahead of time. And make sure to get there as early in the morning as you can so you don’t have to wait in line for as long!
New York Public Library & Grand Central Terminal
Museum of Modern Art
New York is rife with iconic landmarks, and the Brooklyn Bridge is yet another one of them. But it’s still awe-inspiring all the same. Make your way there in the morning. Be sure to walk all the way across it if you have the time. You can take the subway to either end of the bridge, walk across, and then catch another train on the other side. That way you don’t have to worry about walking both ways if you’re not about that life.
