Times Square, New York City

(3.9/5 based on 30,000+ reviews on the web)
Few places conjure up as many iconic images of New York as Times Square, the tourist center of the city, filled with bright video screens and LED signs flashing their messages 24 hours a day. Despite its name, this city landmark isn't a square at all, but the triangular intersections of several main roads in the middle of Manhattan. Stop at the prominent visitor center for restaurant and hotel recommendations, free maps, and ticket sales for many tourist attractions. Often called the crossroads of the world, the area features themed restaurants, theaters, and shops. Our New York City holiday planner makes visiting Times Square and other New York City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
