The Must-See in NYC
Congratulations on making it to New York City and welcome! Now that you have arrived at your hotel and you have finally settled in, it’s time to think out your next few days and pick the places you want to visit during your stay. We know many of you are here to watch a game at the reputable Yankees Stadium or simply to visit the home of your favorite baseball team, but here you will find a few other very popular attractions you can check out. And remember – at the end of each busy, cosmopolitan day, at Morris Guest House, we offer you a relaxing and peaceful environment to rest in, or in other words, the best there is in terms of budget hotels in NYC.
The Statue of Liberty
Initially a gift from the French to the United States, the Statue of Liberty soon became a symbol of freedom and a sign of welcome for the immigrants who came to the USA in search of a better life. Today, it represents by far the most recognizable landmark of New York City and it is an absolute must-see for all visitors.
If you want to make the most out of your visit, you should book a ticket in advance. This way, you don’t have to spend time waiting in line and you get to enjoy an up-close view, as well as the exciting climb to the top of the statue. When you’re done, don’t forget to visit Ellis Island on your way, so you can get a feel of how immigrants arrived in New York during the 20th century.
Another popular attraction to visitors of NYC is Central Park, the centerpiece of the city’s public parks system and one of the largest metropolitan oases in the world. At Morris Guest House, you will discover that we do not only uphold affordability when it comes to booking a room. Indeed, as one of the most inexpensive hotels in New York, we can advise you on the cheapest ways to get around the city and the great activities you can enjoy in areas such as Central Park.
Whether its summer or winter, the picturesque park at the heart of Manhattan always provides entertainment for new visitors. Amongst its most famous attractions, you will find Central Park Zoo, Belvedere Castle or the Friedsam Memorial Carousel. During the cold season, you can try out ice skating at Trump Rink, while enjoying the scenic background of the traditional winter. In summer, on the other hand, the Delacorte Theatre holds plays for Shakespeare fans, while Rumsey Playfield hosts the citywide, free performing arts festival named SummerStage.
The Bronx Zoo
If you’re looking for family oriented pastimes during your stay in New York City, we definitely recommend the Bronx Zoo, the largest urban wildlife preserve in the entire USA. You will discover that we are not just the most affordable hotel in the proximity of Yankees stadium, as more than 5000 animals and 600 different species are just around the corner from Morris Guest House.
And if you’ve seen all the wildlife, then you will surely find a fun activity to enjoy with the children, loved one or even alone. You can choose between sea lion and penguin feedings, the Bug Carousel, the 4D Theatre or the special activities at the Children’s Zoo.
Landmarks, parks, museums or shopping, the Big Apple certainly doesn’t lack in entertainment opportunities or popular attractions for tourists. At Morris Guest House, we are more than eager to present you with the options, while offering you some of the most comfortable and affordable rooms in New York and, most importantly, a quiet, soothing place to crash after all the metropolitan fun.
