Exploring a new city and all that it has to offer can be one of life’s greatest pleasures.
When done right, this experience can also involve surprisingly little planning on the part of the explorer. A fabulous way to ensure that you have a memorable trip is to include a walking tour in the itinerary. One city in which these tours are extremely popular and of which there is an abundance is in the magical city of Manhattan. Some of the most popular walking tours revolve around a specific neighbourhood, while others take you through a series of similar locations and establishments, such as a food tour, or a photography tour. You can choose guided tours, which are popular for the themed tours, while the neighborhoods could be explored with a guide, or you could venture out with a loved one!
Immerse Yourself in Discovery
Choosing to embark on a walking tour of a specific neighbourhood means that you will be privy to beautiful sights, delicious places to dine, fantastic shopping, and stunning architecture. Areas such as Lower Manhattan, Greenwich Village, Midtown, Upper West Side, and Upper East Side all boast many wonderful opportunities for sightseeing and for experiencing the culture of New York City life.
Walk and Dine
If you would prefer to spend the day sampling food from delicious restaurants or tasting all that the luxury chocolate shops of Midtown Manhattan have to offer, then a guided tour that revolves around a certain theme would be a lovely way to explore the city. You could join a tour of Central Park which shows you around to where some of the greatest films of all time were shot, or partake in a photography walk, shooting stunning images of the city that would also serve as precious keepsakes.
Walking tours in Manhattan are a tradition that allows explorers to experience the magic of the city, and learn something along the way! With so many opportunities to explore neighbourhoods and experience history in New York, a walking tour can be a fabulous way to see it all.
