Above are just a some of the places you can experience for free throughout New York, there are tons of museums and tours you can take if you search online. 

If your looking for something a bit more live action, you can sign up for free tickets to live TV tapings from some of your favorite shows.  These tickets are not as flexible however, the network will sometimes give you the date and time that you can visit, but it is still a great thing to experience.  Here are some you might want to check out live:

Good Morning America (ABC)

Live with Kelly

The View (ABC)

The Wendy Williams Show

The Dr. Oz Show

Saturday Night Live (NBC)

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah (Comedy Central)

The Late Night Show with Stephen Colbert (CBS)

Late Night with Seth Meyers (NBC)


Be sure to check out their websites, most of these show tapings have a list of rules and regulations in order to attend.  Many of them you need to be at least 18 years or older and book serval weeks in advance. 

Another great thing to do is just wander through city, there are tons of parks that offer great walking/biking trails, music, or just sit back and people watch.  Along they way you might discover a new restaurant/bar to try, great views, or your new favorite shopping destination.  If you find any great places we should know about, leave a comment!
