The image of Times Square is one that a huge amount of the world is familiar with, the towering buildings and bright lights, the advertising and iconic stores. Why is it that visitors to New York find themselves drawn to this area?
It is true that when you’re in Times Square, you feel like you are in the center of New York, which some see as the world’s ‘capital city’, and the amazing sights are iconic. Living in the western world, we grow up with movies and television shows featuring the area, and the chances are we’ve seen it dozens of times on video before we visit, and feel like we know the area already.
If you go on the best NYC bus tours out there, it is likely that the tour will culminate in, or at least feature the area, and allow you to fully take in the hustle and bustle.
Times Square isn’t just an attraction because of how it looks and the fact that we can finally see the buildings, there is so much to do, with amazing restaurants, iconic stores and activities and even shows that are totally unique to New York, you can sit in one of the bars, eat at some of the famous restaurants, do a bit of shopping or just take in the sights.
If you get the chance, visiting New York is definitely something we recommend, and once you are there, visiting times square is obligatory, and a memory that will stay with you forever.
