Trip to New York city for four nights ( Thursday afternoon -Monday a.m.)

Jump to last reply

This trip is a graduation gift for our two granddaughters (18, & 20). The younger one has never been to New York before and has not traveled very much. We may try to do the Circle Line tour Thursday afternoon to get an overview of the city.. Perhaps visit Times Square or Rockefeller Center that night.

We will be staying at the Doubletree Suites Hotel near Times Square using our Hilton points. Are there some inexpensive places to eat in that area?

Friday morning we plan to start a Hop-On-Hop-Off tour of the city. Friday afternoon, we will get off at the Met since it is open late on Friday. This is a requested visit by the younger one. Maybe we will also have some time to walk in Central Park. Probably will eat at the Met or in the park.

Saturday we will continue the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour. One stop will be the 9/11 Memorial--plan to make reservations online. Also plan to visit St. Patrick's Cathedral. . Maybe walk around the Wall Street area. We will probably get off at other stops too.

Plan to attend Trinity Church on Sunday. Maybe attend a play that night.

We plan to try to get tickets to one or two shows at the half-price kiosk in Times Square. What else would you recommend for such a short time.? What stops on the tour would be best to take in?

Thanks!
