New York in July

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am taking my mother on a trip to New York City in July (yes, I know that it will be hot and humid, but I'm a teacher and this is the only time that I have). Her main interest is going to the theater. I would also like to get to Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and Central Park as well.

1. Where is the best place to stay in order to hit all of these places on a limited amount of time (4 days)? Our budget is about $200 per night for lodging.

2. For those in the know, should I buy our play tickets ahead of time or is it best to buy discounted tickets once we're there?

Thank you for any advice that you can give. I want this to be a special trip for my mother. My father normally plans their vacations and she doesn't get much voice in where they go. When I asked her if she could choose any place, her immediate response was NYC. I just want her to have a great time!
