ITINERARY

Day 1 - Thursday, August 22: NYC

Our trip starts with our luxury coach (which becomes our personal limousine for the next 4 days) picking up a various locations along the 401 and 403 before crossing the border at Buffalo and continuing to the heart of Manhattan, Time Square. We have the entire evening to start experiencing the great things that NYC has to offer. Time Square is the most touristy and energetic heart of this city. Even after dark, the lights from the billboards overwhelm you and give you that unbelievable sensation that “I have finally arrived in the city that never sleeps!” Those lights trick you into believing it’s still daytime. You will be overcome by the energy of Time Square. Transfer to the hotel in New Jersey following the visit.  Overnight.

Day 2 - Friday, August 23: NYC

Enjoy a hot breakfast in the hotel before boarding the coach and travelling into Manhattan. Our second day begins with an exciting three-hour bus tour of Manhattan including a walk through Central Park. Sit back and relax, as our knowledgeable tour guide walks you through the history and background of all of the spectacular views and sights. With must-see attractions like Union Station, Columbus Circle, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Centre and more, you’ll get the full New York City experience from the comfort of our own private coach. Tour ends at Mulberry and Canal Streets, the Heart of Little Italy for a leisurely lunch on your own and some time to hone your bargaining skills in Chinatown. We then continue our touristy escapades going to the Top of the Rock to get a spectacular 360-degree views of the New York City skyline. 

Enjoy the rest of your evening in Times Square with time for dinner, maybe a Broadway musical or play, visiting the MOMA, and shopping. The possibilities are endless! Return to the hotel around 10:30PM.

After disembarking the ferry, we take a walk through the Financial District. Highlights include Wall Street, NY Stock Exchange, Trinity Church and more. Following lunch on your own in the Financial District area, we head over to the 911 Memorial Site and Museum which is a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.
