One of the most popular ways to learn about New York City is by taking a trip on the Circle Line. Offering 9 different types of cruises, including a “Best of” cruise, a Brooklyn-inclusive cruise, and the Liberty Cruise, the multi-hour boat rides feature a full guided tour of Manhattan from the water. The cruise first set sail in 1945, and still operates today as a must-do for many NYC tourists. You can board the boat either at the South Street Seaport or 42nd Street. The Circle Line is a unique cruise company in New York Harbor that is specifically dedicated to sightseeing, with boats designed to give passengers optimal views of Manhattan, all year round.
Perhaps the best-known ride offered by the company is the Best of NYC tour. It touts itself as the only way to see all five boroughs of New York City in one shot! And that’s not all. Along the way, you’ll be charmed by a knowledgeable guide and see landmarks like Yankee Stadium and the George Washington Bridge.
