New York City can be expensive to visit, so why not find free things to do when you’re balancing out your trip?
Staten Island Ferry
This is an easy one! Hop on the Staten Island Ferry to get the best views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. It’s a nice trip that will really put the beauty of the city into perspective.

Visit Central Park
Located in the heart of the city, Central Park is known for being an escape of the hustle and bustle. Our favorite part is definitely the ability to find the filming locations of some of the most historic movies and tv shows!
There are two different ways to do the bridge – to Brooklyn and to Manhattan.
Both are acceptable and will provide something fun, but our suggestion after doing the adventure is to plan your afternoon around the destination. The other thing to remember is that the longer you wait to cross the bridge, the busier it will be.
Start Early and you’ll get the best photos!
New York Public Library
This is definitely a hidden gem in plain sight. Everyone knows that it’s there, but take your time to really explore the New York Public Library. Ask questions of the staff and follow other tourists around…because there’s always another thing to check out!
Oh, and the store is amazing!
