Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to The Big Apple! Dinner is at Broadway hotspot, Sardi’s, with caricatures of celebrity patrons lining the walls. Over a three-course meal, see how many you can recognize. The lights of Times Square are mesmerizing and right outside your hotel. It’s the premiere address at the center of it all, and you call it home! Marriott Marquis Times Square – 5 nights (D) 

Day 2

In Central Park pay homage to John Lennon. At Strawberry Fields, a mosaic spells out “Imagine,” timely still today. At a real working firehouse and precinct, Bronx FDNY and NYPD share the rigors of the job and their efforts to strengthen community relations and safety. True heroes! Eat your way along Arthur Avenue, The Real Little Italy. Meet shop owners producing the foods you enjoyed at lunch. Grab some to take home, our treat! Oh, and the fresh cannoli? Mangia, mangia! Tonight is your first night of theater. Your Tour Directors will be available to direct/escort you. (L)

Day 3

Do it the New York way, by subway and on foot. Take the subway to the Financial District. On Wall Street, pause at Federal Hall and say hi to Alexander Hamilton at Trinity Church. After lunch ascend One World Observatory with 360° views. Below, reflect at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Pause in the West Village at the sight of the Stonewall Riots, a flashpoint that began the LBGTQ community’s fight for Civil Rights 50 years ago. Get ready for a decadent family-style dinner at Carmine’s. (L,D)

Day 4

You decide how to spend your day! Join your Tour Directors and sail to Ellis and Liberty Islands, visit Grand Central Station, do some shopping, take in a world-class museum or go sightseeing. We’ll point you in the right direction. Come together for an early steakhouse dinner and share your adventures. Carnegie Hall will be abuzz for the New York Pops 37th Birthday Gala, and you have box seats! Past and present stars of Broadway relax and let it all hang out! It’s truly a one-of-a kind New York evening. (D)

Day 5

Pull back the curtain of Broadway. At a rehearsal studio, ask actors, musicians and technicians about their training, path to the stage or insider gossip! Meet Peter Filicia, a theater critic, with deep roots and a long history in the Broadway world. An endless source of information and full of entertaining stories, he’s a show unto himself! Lunch is at an authentic New York Deli; try the pastrami! Your last evening on Broadway is the show of your choosing. (L)

Day 6

Before Times Square roars to life, take a short walking tour as a local guide shares fabled stories and easily overlooked points of interest. If only the streets could talk! At Hershey Chocolate World, tap into your inner child with a S’mores. Why you ask? It’s New York and anything is possible here, so… why not? With sticky fingers and a chocolate smudged smile, head to the airport to return home.
