Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Your best friend, mom or long-lost cousins are coming to town and you’re feeling the pressure to show them a good time. We know the feeling! Rest assured, we’re here to help you prove that you’re the cool, in-the-know New Yorker they think you are. As much as they might beg you to show them Times Square, gently guide your guests in the direction of less touristy New York attractions. Some of the best museums in NYC don’t have mile-long ticket lines, while NYC parks offer a welcome respite from the crowds. While your visitors might protest your suggestions at first, they’ll certainly thank you for taking them to these local favorites by the end of their trip.
