If you’re one of the millions of Americans that travel for work or you simply enjoy getting away for a weekend, you understand the planning that is needed for each trip you take. Failing to plan appropriately can ruin your trip and create an incredibly stressful experience for everyone involved. No matter if you are visiting for business or pleasure, the professional team at Empire Rent A Car recommends these travel tips to make the most out of your trip to New York City.
1. Don’t Stay in Times SquareIt may be tempting to stay close to the action, but staying in Times Square is never a good idea. The traffic is impossible, the streets are extremely crowded, and the hotels are expensive. Times Square is iconic and certainly worth a visit, but definitely don’t stay there!
2. Explore the Entire CityThere are countless things to see in New York City. The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and Rockefeller Center are just a few that get a lot of foot traffic. However, some of the best areas that New York has to offer are the quaint neighborhoods within the city. Check out the antique markets in Chelsea, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, or have lunch in Soho. With a rental car from Empire, you’ll easily be able to navigate the city and explore the less trafficked areas of town.
3. Eat Italian
Everyone knows that New York City is famous for its Italian food, specifically the pizza. Be sure and head down to Bleeker Street and taste the best Italian food that New York has to offer. Have some pizza or cannoli at one of the many Italian shops lining the streets in Greenwhich Village.
