What is there to do?

Have you ever seen one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern Word? No? Then head on over to the Empire State Building, and then your answer will be YES!

The Empire State Building is that HUGE and impressive tower right in the heart of New York City - it's iconic! It's also an amazing place to visit with the family, and a must do when visiting that big apple (and yes kids, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!)

The Empire State Building tours is a great way for kids to learn all about the history of the building, and to see the best views of New York they will experience.

The 86th floor has an observation desk, where they can enjoy 360 degree panoramic views - that's 1,250 feet up - pretty impressive! The 2nd floor has a fun interactive multi media exhibits which can show kids all about the Empire State Building's amazing efforts towards sustainability and energy efficient - which also serves as a great environmental inspiration for them.

Ever wondered how the building was constructed? Then check out the Dare To Dream on the 80th floor with fun vintage images, and fascinating mementos of the story of the building, as well as the amazing and brave people who worked on it.

An icon of the New York City skyline since 1976, you can even watch it light up the night sky with different colors!

A must visit for any family looking for that fun place to be in the big apple!
