You haven’t experienced the Big Apple until you’ve checked out the Bronx. The northernmost of the five New York boroughs is home to more than Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Zoo. It’s the birthplace of rap and hip-hop. It boasts the sprawling Pelham Bay Park, which makes Central Park look like a backyard. It has a proud multicultural community, waiting to show you a different side of New York. And you can Boogie Down on any budget, especially when you stay at these cheap hotels in the Bronx, bookable on Culture Trip.

We know of few places better than the Bronx Ramada to get into the Empire State of Mind. Run this town from the comfort of a king suite (pillow top mattress included).

Brush that dirt off your shoulder and get to know the Bronx music scene at the Universal Hip Hop Museum, two blocks away near the Harlem River.
