Columbus Circle Tours

star-4
674 Reviews
Columbus Circle
New York City’s Columbus Circle is more than just a roundabout. Home to attractions such as the towering Time Warner Center and Jazz at Lincoln Center, the centrally located site is the gateway to Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and a major commercial hub and shopping destination for locals and tourists alike. 

The Basics 
Located at the verdant southwestern corner of Central Park, Columbus Circle—named for its monument of Christopher Columbus—is a stop on most New York City hop-on hop-off bus tours, thematic walking tours, and Central Park scavenger hunts. If you’re there in winter, browse the artisan-crafted wares at the festive Columbus Circle Holiday Market. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • A bike tour of Central Park and Columbus Circle is an appealing option for active visitors.
  • A helicopter tour is an exciting way to see Columbus Circle and the New York skyline.
  • Design enthusiasts appreciate the Museum of Arts and Design, one of New York’s premier arts spaces, located off Columbus Circle.

How to Get There
Columbus Circle is well served by public transit. Take the A, B, C, D, or 1 subway train to the 59th Street–Columbus Circle station, or the N, Q, R, or W train to the 57th Street stop. Several bus lines also run along Broadway and Central Park West.

When to Get There
A heavily trafficked area of New York City, Columbus Circle is busiest during peak weekday commuting hours. Stores and restaurants are bustling on weekends. For fewer crowds, go in the middle of the day on a weekday.

Where to Find New York’s Best Shopping 
Looking for a luxurious evening of shopping and dining? Follow a stroll through Central Park with a stop at the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle. You’ll find Michelin-starred restaurants and dozens of high-end boutiques, as well as a hotel and deluxe residences. 
Address: Columbus Cir, New York City, New York, USA, USA
