Travel to New York City
Rather like Rome, it could be said that all roads lead to New York. Or least, a great many do. With millions of people visiting annually, for business, tourism, or to meet up with family and friends, travel to New York City has its own peculiar challenges.
New York Airports LGA and JFK offer fast connections to Manhattan Experienced travelers and natives alike will give you the same piece of travel advice, which can be summed up in two words: public transportation. The best way to get to the city is via the New York airports LGA and JKF, or LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports respectively. Newark International airport is also nearby, and a short train ride into the city. Depending on your location, Amtrak works, too.
Skip the traffic jams
New York is not car-friendly, from the bottlenecks at the bridges and tunnels leading into Manhattan to the lack of parking spaces and the exorbitant cost of parking garages. And that’s assuming you are lucky enough not to find yourself in one of the gridlocked traffic jams that can happen anywhere. So leave your car at home, or in a parking lot at the airport or train station, and prepare to navigate NYC the way the natives do: on foot and by public transportation.
Enjoy your holiday!
Traffic problems apart, New York is still the greatest city in the world and attracts tourists from all over the world. And Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the greatest spectacles of the season. The Thanksgiving parade is an event the whole family will enjoy and remember for years afterwards.
