Times Square, New York City
(3.9/5 based on 28,000+ 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.

  • Just the way you would imagine lots of hustle bustle in the big city. All the bright lights and fun things to see. Stores to shop plays to see and even Mickey, Minnie, Elmo, Cookie Monster 
  • A must see when you're in NYC. seems, never sleeps. When being here, you'll understand why it's called ''the crossroads of the world". But it was too crowded for me. 
  • Times Square is really beautiful, the buildings are illuminated, and the corner is very alive c is really a place of New York
