Not to add anything to your ever-growing wedding to-do list, but chances are you're going to have some out-of-town guests attend your wedding weekend. An important thing that couples can do to keep their guests entertained is provide their visitors with a guide of "must sees." In a city like Manhattan, it's pretty difficult to narrow it down to just a few options. To make it a bit easier for you, we've compiled our favorite spots that out-of-town wedding guests should definitely enjoy.

Central Park
Regardless of the weather, all NYC visitors should take in all that Central Park has to offer. One of the United States' most popular parks, this 843-acre park is home to two indoor restaurants, a zoo, carousel, theatre, 21 playgrounds, and more. Read real brides' reviews here!

City Sights NYC Tour
We know there is a ton to see in New York City, so a hop-on hop-off bus is a perfect way to tour the city and stop wherever your heart desires. With a plethora of options for different neighborhood tours and all-access passes to the whole city, this narrated bus tour will educate you as you relax and learn all about the great city of New York.

Times Square
While it may be considered the tourist hotspot of the East Coast, it's for a good reason. Located at the crossing of Broadway and 7th Avenue, spanning 42nd through 47th Street, you can't miss this iconic NYC locale filled with bright neon lights, interactive billboards, and towering buildings that have become staples of Times Square. Also home to major television studios and world-renowned retailers, there's a lot to do and see here.

If the timing of his or her visit allows, every NYC visitor should experience a Broadway show. TKTS discount ticket booths are the best way for guests to experience same-day Broadway performances for 20 to 50 percent off full ticket prices. With booths located in Times Square, South Street Seaport, and Brooklyn, encourage your guests to stop by a booth for an experience they'll never forget.
