Here at New York Weekend Breaks our aim is to make travelling to NYC as simple & enjoyable as possible – not that this wonderful city needs us to make it enjoyable, but armed with the right information and guidance we feel it’s possible to get even more from your trip to the Big Apple.

Throughout our website, you’ll find useful information, helpful tips, and informative guides so you’re in the know when you touch down in Gotham.

Our restaurant guides offer advice on all things food, and we cover everything from the city’s Michelin-star restaurants, right through to where you can get the best street grub and what food tours are available to you.

This website provides useful information on all the famous – and the not-so-famous- tourist attractions in New York, to give you an idea of how best to spend your time in the city. So whether you’re heading there to see the usual suspects like the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty or Broadway, or you’re looking to get off the beaten track and venture a little further afield, we have you covered.

We also feature hotel guides, which offer advice on the best accommodation based on your budget and requirements, and we even give money-saving tips so you can get the most from your budget while you’re in town.

So if you’re on the lookout for some helpful information to ensure your time in New York is as memorable as possible, then you’ve come to the right place.
