6. New York City
From Frank Sinatra to Jay Z, countless musicians have tried to capture the essence of New York City in song, but to get a real impression of the concrete jungle you’ve got to experience it for yourself. You’ll want to cross landmarks like the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty off your bucket list, but you’ll find more cultural pastimes just as exciting.
Take in a Broadway show, people-watch in Central Park or pull out your credit card to shop on Fifth Avenue. There are so many options, you’ll need more than one trip to see it all.
