Five Exciting Things to Do on Vacation from Hong Kong to New York

New York is a very famous city in America. However, there is also a state called New York as well. Too many people think of the city when someone says “New York”. There are plenty of exciting things to look at and explore in both New York state and New York City. Here are five things that you must do when you are on your vacation from Hong Kong to New York.

  1. Visit the All Things Oz Museum
    The Wizard of Oz is one of the most famous pieces of literature around the world. It has been made into countless movies and TV shows. In Chittenango, New York, there is a whole museum dedicated to all thing Oz. It is just as the name suggests: an entire museum about L. Frank Baum and his wonderful world of Oz. The All Things Oz Museum is open on Saturdays from 10 am to 3 pm during the winter. You can get in at other times by appointment. Admissions are a $5 donation per person, but children ten and under can get in for free.
  2. Visit the Statue of Liberty
    If you are traveling from Hong Kong to New York, you must see the iconic Lady Liberty. A gift from France in 1886, this statue has become a symbol of freedom and America. In fact, the Statue of Liberty is one of the first things that comes to mind when someone brings up New York. What makes a visit much more special to Lady Liberty is that you can see the city from inside her crown. There are many flights of stairs to get to the top, but the trip is well worth it so see the ocean and Manhattan from the top.
  3. Travel Brooklyn Bridge
    Brooklyn in New York is famous for its pizza. But another thing it is well-known for is Brooklyn Bridge. This is the east coast’s answer to the San Diego Bridge. This is a piece of New York history. The Brooklyn Bridge was first built in 1883. It has been featured in many TV shows and movies over the years. In a way, the Brooklyn Bridge can be a romantic destination. A couple can take a “love lock” with their initials and date inscribed in it, attach it to the bridge, and throw the key into the water as a symbol of their undying love.
  4. Catch a Show at the Apollo Theater
    New York and the arts go hand-in-hand as long as anyone knows. A traveler can stop and take in the culture around them. If you are traveling from Hong Kong to New York, you have to catch a show at the Apollo Theater. This place holds many concerts and performances every year. Whatever you feel like going to, you can purchase tickets to any show and head there right away. Sometimes, it is expensive, but it can be well worth it.
  5. Take the Kids to a New York State Children’s Museum
    If you have children in tow, there is plenty of things for them to do in New York as well. One example is to take them to a museum. You have many options to choose from. The Staten Island Children’s Museum is a playground with giant board games, a first-hand look at a bug’s life, and replicas of different ecosystems. The Long Island Children’s Museum lets children be creative with twelve interactive exhibit galleries, professional theater performances on weekends, and creative projects in workshops. Whatever museum you take your kids to, they will love it for sure.
