to Experience New York City
Getting to know New York City In the best way possible
Walking through some
of NYC's most interesting neighbourhoods
To really know New York City, you have to see it up close—you have to experience it as New Yorkers do by walking.
Here you'll find several Manhattan walks. These New York City walks (or one long walk) are super ways to enjoy and learn about Manhattan.

You have three choices:
- You can do the itinerary all in one day, skipping the great museums and other logical stopping points, which is okay if you don't have much time.
Even in this way, you'll still get a great feeling for New York City and have the chance to explore a few places in depth. And, because you'll use buses for the less interesting portions, the day should not be too tiring.
- You can just do one part of the walk in depth, if your time is limited.
For example, you could visit Times Square, then walk east on 42nd Street to Fifth Avenue, and then travel north on Fifth to Central Park via the fabulous "Miracle Mile," which includes Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, the Plaza Hotel, the Trump Tower, and much of New York City's most exclusive shopping.
- Or, you can break up the walk into two, three, or more days. You don't have to trek all day. This gives you time to enjoy the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other such places.
