Looking for the best NYC attractions to tackle on your next trip, but overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of exciting things to do in New York City? Use this interactive map of New York City's most popular attractions to plot your travel itinerary. Be sure to include as many fantastic attractions, museums, monuments, parks and skyscrapers as possible you don't want to look back and regret missing the one your chirpy neighbor saw. Click on each icon to find each attraction’s hours and info, and get your tickets ahead of time so you get any discounts available and don't have to wait in line when you get there!

Fans of museums won’t want to miss the dinosaurs and planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, the mummies and medieval art work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and thought-provoking modern art at MOMA. You can locate all three on the map below. After you've worked the noggin a bit at the museums, fit in some great views of the stunning Manhattan skyline from the Top of the Rock or the Empire State Building. Both Top of the Rock and the Empire State Building are also identified on the map below.

Does the concrete jungle have you longing for greener pastures? Take some time in between your sightseeing for a relaxing picnic or an afternoon sojourn to Bryant Park or Central Park. Anyone heard of Central Park? Looking at the interactive map of New York City on this page, you can see how close both parks are to many of the other popular attractions and where each is located in relation to the other. While some of you may dispute which attractions deserve to be included on the map thinking some of the more popular pubs should have made it, it's hard to argue that any of these attractions are not worthy.

So print out the map, put it on your fridge in advance of your trip, show your friends, upload it to your Facebook account, Tweet about it, take a pic and Instagram it and then bring it along with you as a cheat sheet and guide so you hit all the popular attractions and landmarks. Have fun!
