New York City is a hot destination! Join Travel Crazy as we take a bite out of The Big Apple.
Our trip will begin as we motorcoach north overnighting in Pennsylvania before heading to NYC. After our overnight stay, our welcome to New York will be similar to the arrival of early immigrants. We will motorcoach from Pennsylvania to Liberty State Park (in New Jersey), where boarding a ferryboat, and visit Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Afterward, another ferry will bring us into Battery Park and the lower tip of Manhattan Island. What a way to enter New York City for the first time!
Our Theater District hotel accommodations will provide easy access to most of Manhattan's theaters and the glitz and excitement of Times Square, one-half a block away!
The following day, we will be joined by a knowledgeable guide for a full day of sightseeing in America's most exciting city. Tour highlights will include extended stops at the Empire State Building, Chinatown, Little Italy, and a walking tour of Central Park.
In the evening, we will be whisked away into the spellbinding world of Broadway as we attend a Broadway Show (show selection not determined yet).
Our final day in New York will take us on a moving visit to Ground Zero, followed by a luncheon cruise around NYC's harbor. What a Grand Finale' to our visit in New York!
We'll depart our cruise and begin our journey home, overnighting in Pennsylvania where we will visit the Flight 93 Memorial. Though the memorial will eventually be replaced by a permanent one, visiting this temporary memorial is a stirring event you will never forget. Also, a moderate amount of walking is necessary to do some of the tours.
