The words “New York” bring up images of high fashion and sky-high buildings. And while you’ll find plenty of both here, there’s a lot more to the 11th state than most visitors realize. With our luxury travel planning, your trip to New York will be like none other.

The eponymous city is made up of five burrows (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island). Explore each of them, and you’ll get a sense of what makes NYC so special. With an Art Deco thoroughfare modeled after Paris’ Champs Élysées and deep roots in hip hop, a day trip to the Bronx is well-worth the commute time. Brooklyn has become the new epicenter of cool, with high-end-meets-low-key eateries and plenty of street style. For relaxed days and delicious beverages, head to Queens, where you’ll enjoy a laid-back pace, local-favorite beer gardens, and a step back in jazz history at the Louis Armstrong House Museum. If you’ve never seen Staten Island, begin your day with views from the ferry and end it with homestyle Italian fare. And, of course, there’s plenty to see and do in “the city” (a.k.a. Manhattan), from Broadway theater and world-class museums, to iconic restaurants and legendary shopping. Like much of the East coast, you can feel the history here—and even stop for lunch at a tavern that served as George Washington’s headquarters.

New York is also the place to summer like (and alongside) celebrities. Post up for a weekend or a few months in a glamorous beach house in the Hamptons, or in another highly coveted part of Long Island, like Fire Island, Montauk, or Sag Harbor. And for more of a nature-focused getaway, head to Niagara Falls State Park or Hudson Valley, a Natural Heritage Area with a burgeoning food scene, wine region, and breathtaking scenery. Whether you’re craving a metropolitan escape or a quiet weekend surrounded by natural beauty, New York has what you’re looking for—and our expert advisors are ready to help you discover this magical state.
