You can't go wrong if you take your teens to NYC for vacation. They will love it. So much to see and do and you don't have to spend much money on anything. Even food is pretty inexpensive. So many photo opportunities too!

Was everything I imagined it would be and then some. Can't wait to return. I stayed at the Westin Times Square which is literally right on block away from Time Square. All of the billboards are captivating. There are plenty of shows going on, food vendors and street artist as well. It's especially beautiful at night.

We took teens and they loved it. It was very clean and safe and better than I expected. The Forever 21 is HUGE and had some great sales but has NO bathroom. The Disney store next door is better than the ones at DisneyWorld.

Fantastic place, super busy but not unfriendly, the only complaint are the street artists who try and charge you for having pictures taken with them.

Where it all begins for shows, food and fun. A little early in the year for the naked cowboy but I'm sure to see him this summer.

Our hotel was on Times Square so we got to experience the Square at different times of the day, early morning at breakfast times when all the commuters were off to work and in the evenings when all the tourists came out!! It really is the city that never sleeps! There's food vans at every corner and generally can be... More

Gotta go various times of the day and night. Different each time. Always interesting. Only grip is the bus tour people trying to get your attention.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
