A trip to New York wouldn't be complete without two things: pizza and a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Skip the line to Manhattan's most famous skyscraper and bypass all queues inside. Check out the second-floor exhibits, the newly renovated 80th floor, and the 86th-floor observatory. See from above what makes New York the greatest city on the planet!
The Empire State Building stretches 102 stories into the sky, but don't just stand in its shadow on Fifth Avenue. Skip the line and get straight to the good stuff inside!
With this Express Entry ticket, you can stroll right through the newly renovated Art Deco lobby and take the elevator up to the observatory. On the way, check out the 'Sustainability' exhibit to learn how architects and designers have made the building much more eco-friendly.
See the 'Dare to Dream' exhibit and learn about the building's history, engineering, and construction. You'll skip the lines to all these exhibits and more – great news for the queue-phobic!
Enjoy panoramic views of up to six states from the surrounding open-air promenade and climate-controlled viewing galleries. See the tiny people in Central Park, or go at night and catch a memorable sunset.
Empire State Extras
For your own digitally guided tour from the ground floor right up to the top, the Official Empire State Building Guide app is a must-have. Download it for free from the App Store and Google Play.
Hungry up high? The Empire State Building boasts seven eateries. Choose a pre-fixed dinner package at the State Grill and Bar, which also serves local craft beers and cocktails. Starbucks, Chipotle, and Sushi-teria are also close by.
For something different, the Empire Lights'Wich is an Instagram-worthy homemade ice cream sandwich that changes to match the lights each night!
