Broadway, New York City

Explore America's famed Broadway theater district during your trip to New York City. Since 1883, when Metropolitan Opera House relocated to West 39th Street and Broadway, this part of the city has served as a major attraction for locals and tourists, offering outstanding live-theater performances. The district is located in Midtown Manhattan and is known to many as the heart of the city for its historic and artistic value. See award-winning plays and musicals, classic theater pieces, and though-provoking, original work at any of its renowned theaters. If you don't have time to sit through an entire play, simply walk around and wonder at the district's neon lights and fast-paced crowds. Make Broadway a centerpiece of your New York City vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our New York City trip planner.
