New York City (NYC) has been a vision for many people. Attracting people from all over the globe the city is a hot spot for businessmen and people of the glamour. The new pandemic has created several issues regarding traveling and enjoying your own city’s treasures seems like the only option for most people nowadays.
Things in the USA are expected to calm down from now on as far as the riots and the Covid-19 are concerned. Thankfully, the city is a real masterpiece and a lifetime would not be enough if someone wanted to explore the whole place. The coronavirus restrictions offer us the opportunity to give our hometowns other perspectives.
Those who live in NYC should consider themselves lucky and try to make the most out of the city. Below we have collected some of the things that can turn a normal weekend into an extravagant event of the year
- Performing Arts at Metropolitan Opera.
In Lincoln Square, you may find the Metropolitan Opera House. Most of the performances that are housed in this huge space of 3,800 people are operatic and the on-time translation is available. The Metropolitan Opera was founded in 1883, but it was only in 1966 that it moved to the Lincoln Center.
The acoustic is terrific and the prices of tickets vary depending on the provided vision. Apart from attending a show, you can also get a tour of the Metropolitan Opera Guilt Backstage. The tours are available every day, while you can also get a tour at the Lincoln Center. However, performance is what this place is all about and we rather suggest you go to an opera even if you are not fond of the specific type of music. You see, opera is a combination of music and theater, and the outstanding costumes together with the world’s best voices will blow your mind.
- Stay in a luxurious hotel.
If you want to experience your city from a different view, what a better idea than spend the night in an elegant hotel. The St. Regis New York offers a variety of options on suites. There is the Tiffany Suite, the Milano Suite, Bentley Suite, and the Dior Suite. However, the most extraordinary is the Presidential Suite that comes for $ 35,000 and is one of the most expensive option for accommodation in the city. A more minimalistic version for a hotel would be The Mark. Again you can take the Penthouse Suite which is 12,000 square foot including two wet bars and is at the cost of $ 75,000 per night. It is the largest suite in the United States and it will leave you speechless. In case you need a more realistic option, you can visit Ritz Carlton Hotel and avoid booking its most expensive suite.
- What better than a spa?

The Juvenex Spa is conveniently located at the heart of Manhattan it offers rare packages for all tastes 24/7. First of all, there is a romantic couple spa, which is specially designed for couples.

New York has a natural harbor and the waters close to the city are supposed to be calm more or less, making the sailing experience cool for most people. Day and evening cruises are available as well as inner and open decks. Manhattan by Sail company also has Private luxury yacht charters that you can book.
