If you plan to learn English, New York City is definitely the right place to be. Not only is it one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world, but it also has such an amazing cultural and national diversity that regardless of where you are from and what language you speak, you will feel at home here. It’s one of the most popular tourist destinations, and for a good reason. Whether you are interested in music, architecture, history, art or nightlife, you will definitely find something to enjoy, from going to the world-famous museums to the underground galleries featuring works of up-and-coming artists, from seeing Broadway shows to tasting unique cuisine in three-star restaurants, from visiting historic sites to exploring new trendy neighborhoods. Your stay in New York can certainly be one of the most interesting and memorable times of your life, and the best thing about it is that you do not necessarily have to spend a lot of money to make it happen. Even though New York is one of the 30 most expensive cities in the world, there are a lot of things that you can do and see for free.

With summer on its way, everyone tries to spend more time outdoors and the city offers a lot of great opportunities to do that. We suggest you start with visiting one of the many green and leafy escapes from the chaotic life of the megapolis.

Central Park is one of the city’s landmarks and a definite must-see, but it’s just one of the many New York’s urban oasises. The Fresh Kills Park is spread over 2,200 acres of land in Staten Island and is about to become the largest park in New York. Take a free 90-minute bus tour and learn about the transformation of the former landfill into a green gem of the Staten Island waterfront while enjoying the view of the surrounding bridges.

Fort Totten Park of Queens is a home to Civil War masonry forts and everyone interested in U.S, History should consider going there. Sign up for a free guided tour and enjoy a glimpse into the historical part of New York. You can also participate in one of the many events and festivities taking place here all year round, from bird watching in the winter to visiting the park’s haunted mansion at Halloween.

If the only means of transportation you acknowledge is a bike, reserve a spot at the Bronx River Ride to The Source. Keep in mind that this 5-hour ride is not for the faint of heart.

Park Slope, an up-and-coming neighborhood in Brooklyn, was not always a home to artists and writers. If you want to know what the area was like before the invasion of art galleries and upscale coffee shops, the Urban Ranger tour is a good way to find out.
