Join Pauwels Travel and Stacey Bester, owner of Sweet Bakery in Brantford, on a tour of NYC. You will enjoy a breat food tour in Greenwich, maybe test your cooking skills with an optional hands-on class at the French Cooking Institute, and experience the rest of the sights and attractions this bustling city has to offer.
Today we will make full use of our hop on-hop off New York City bus pass. Sights will include; a drive down Fifth Avenue, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, stop at Rockefeller Centre, Times Square, Grand Central Station, Garment District, a short walk along the High Line (which is a very unique park built on an abandoned elevated railway & one of the most popular attractions in New York), Chelsea Market (a beautiful food market in an old Nabisco factory directly under the High Line and home to the Food Network), Greenwich Village, SoHo, Little Italy & Chinatown. After an uninterrupted tour of the main loops you are free to enjoy additional routes or hop off at a spot for some individual sightseeing, perhaps a stroll past the Dakota Building, and into Central Park a photo stop at Strawberry Field or the Bethesda Fountain, a visit to one of Manhattans fabulous museums, a Mets or Yankees game, a Broadway show, Jazz at the Lincoln or a leisurely dinner in one of New York’s famous eateries. You are in the city that never sleeps. Enjoy.
Eat light this morning. Following some free time we will transfer by subway to Greenwich Village where we will enjoy a food tour of NYC’s most delicious food-centric area & visit the famous Washington Square Park! Following the tour you are free to indulge in a little retail therapy or continue sightseeing at your own pace.
