This morning transfer on own to the railway station to board your train to New York City. New York City, deservingly called “the City That Never Sleeps”, offers something for everyone at all times of the day or night. New York is among the most storied cities in all the world. It is a major travel, business, and cultural hub. You will find fine dining next to pizza takeaway restaurants, luxury shopping in Soho next to the crammed knock-off shops of Canal St. New York is a mosaic of cultures that have all come together to give the “Big Apple” a flavor of its own. And despite being featured in countless movies, TV shows, and songs, “The City” still has a few secrets to tell.
Today you will tour the city with the fun and informative Hop on – Hop off city tour. Sit in comfort, as your knowledgeable guide points out landmarks and shares New York history with you. Hop off as often as you like to dine, shop, or visit attractions; when you are ready, hop back on and continue the tour. Among the most visited attractions are Time Square, Central Park which houses the City Zoo, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the famous Brooklyn Bridge. Visit one of New York’s most popular destinations, Rockefeller Center. It is a hub of activity, with thousands of visitors and New Yorkers alike taking in an array of exciting attractions. After dark, the “Twin Gothic Towers” and strong steel cables make a striking silhouette against the night sky. Walking across the bridge is a huge thrill, particularly if you start from the Brooklyn side and view the Manhattan skyline as your stroll across. Of course, no tour of New York would be complete without a visit to America’s highest representation of freedom, the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, and the Empire State Building. For the artist at heart, the more established arts like dance, theater, and music are superbly catered for. In between sights, you can eat just about anything, at any time, cooked in any style.
