We have some tips for a tourist in New York City that will both make your experience as much fun as possible, and will help make you not stick out as a tourist so much. The local people of New York aren’t mean to tourists, but they aren’t extra friendly when tourists do things that bother them, so be sure to keep in mind what we mention here.
For this article, we’ll start out with etiquette and things to remember when visiting New York City. In nearly any tourist destination, tourists have a bit of a bad reputation, so if you can avoid doing those things that upset locals, your trip will be more enjoyable than if you are going around bothering locals. Be aware of your presence when walking on the sidewalks or up and down stairs. New Yorkers are often in a bit of a rush, so if you’re mindlessly walking around, stopping frequently, or blocking stairs, people will tend to get a bit frustrated with you. Avoid texting and walking if possible, as this will only result in bumping into people. And you’re there to enjoy the city, not text your friends! Put away your cell phone if possible and take in the great city. If you’re doing your best to fit in with the city, don’t be afraid to ask for directions or help; New Yorkers are some of the nicest people in the world.
If you’re an active individual, be sure to bring exercise clothes and shoes if you are staying for more than a few days. Central Park is open to traffic on weekends and is a great place for running in the fresh air. There are plenty of people that you will be running with, but if that’s not your style, there are paths that will give you more scenery and less people. It can be a bit humid in the summer, and a bit cold in the winter, but it is tolerable if you dress appropriately.
While many people attend Broadway shows, not that many people take in the wonderful music that New York City has to offer. There are top musicians from all genres performing every single night in New York City, so regardless of what your musical taste is like; you will be able to find a performance that appeals to your ears. There are plenty of websites that do a great job of helping you find music events ahead of time. If you can’t find anything online that suits your fancy, simply walk around town and you’ll be sure to find a flyer or two that will grab your interest.
So with those tips, you should have a great time in New York City as a tourist. It’s a great tourism destination, and you won’t regret going at all.
