Manhattan knows that you cannot bear the thought of traveling without your furry friend, which is why plenty of hotels not only welcome four-legged guests, but make them feel as special as the rest of the pack. What else can you expect from a city that is obsessed with pets? From carting furry friends to a pet store or dining at dog-friendly restaurants, New Yorkers do not like to leave them at home. Thanks to this, you fortunately do not have to either when traveling to the Big Apple.
Whether you love the buzz of the city or you try to get away from it, there is no denying New York City can be exhausting every now and then. If you are looking for a little peace and quiet away from the chaos of the city for you and your furry friend, then turn to Central Park. New Yorkers love it just as much as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. In fact, the park is often nicknamed ‘The Heart of New York City’. You and your pet will enjoy its many different areas, such as a small forest, bigger meadows, or the winding paths around the lake.
World-class museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, unfortunately do not allow pets. However, taking a stroll around unforgettable icons, such as the Empire State Building, are of course mandatory and allowed. Moreover, all the ethnic enclaves and shops, historic streets of dignified brownstones, and trendy bars and eateries add to a taste of the Big Apple.
