Few cities in the world can match New York’s wealth of trendsetting style, art, and landmark attractions. Whether it’s your first visit to the Big Apple or you’re back for your umpteenth time, these unique activities can help you dig beneath the surface and see the city in new and unexpected ways.
Take a Class
Learn a new skill and experience New York City culture firsthand through an interactive class. Take notes from experts as you paint sneakers with an NYC artist, create your own graffiti masterpiece, or swing dance your way through historic Harlem.
Eat (and Drink) Like a Local
While New York City’s sheer number of food options can be overwhelming, these experiences help you single out hidden gems and local favorites. Get a feel for NYC’s rich culinary scene through the lens of a specific neighborhood, such as Brooklyn's eclectic food shops, the Italian influences of Greenwich Village, or Prohibition-era speakeasies in East Village.
Take the Path Less Traveled
These activities help you uncover a side of New York that many visitors overlook. Stroll through the Met with a focus on history’s trendsetting women, explore the paranormal side of Broadway’s legendary theaters, or privately tour a museum dedicated to unusual inventions and antiques.
Get the VIP Treatment
You don’t have to be an Upper East Side socialite to enjoy star treatment in New York. Treat yourself to a day of pampering as you sip Prosecco and sail past the Manhattan skyline, skip the selfies in lieu of a professional photographer, or explore the MoMA before it officially opens.
