Updated: Mar 3, 2018

Over the past few years public funding and private initiatives have helped jump-start a new renaissance in Harlem. Its rich history, culture and people make for a memorable Harlem tour.

Harlem is home to many of New York's most historic landmarks, including Alexander Hamilton's home and Grant's Tomb.

If you are a basketball fan, there is Malcolm Rucker Park from the movie Above the Rim.

If you like architecture, there is Striver's Row; the Cathedral of St. John the Divine; City College and neo-gothic Riverside Church (the highest church in the nation) - all of which are a must on your Harlem tour.

The Apollo Theater is one of the most well known landmarks in Harlem. The theater is responsible for launching the careers of Ella Fitzgerlad; Diana Ross and The Supremes; The Jackson 5; Mariah Carey and many, many more! The theater still hosts Amateur Night every Wednesday evening.

if you are a jazz lover, on your Harlem tour you won’t want to miss The National Jazz Museum. With it's visitors center, as well as different programs and events always going on, The National Jazz Museum is a great place to learn and explore!

The Studio Museum of Harlem is home to over 1,600 permanent pieces, as well as an ever changing collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, mixed media art and photographs by today’s most talented African-American artists!

Riverbank State Park boasts some of the best views of the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge. Two playgrounds, a water splash pad, and a very cool carousel make it a great place for families on a Harlem tour!

Harlem will not leave you hungry either! If soul food is what you crave, Sylvia’s will take care of that! There is also Amy Ruth's, the Red Rooster and Melba's. There is no shortage of great places to eat on a Harlem tour.
