Thanksgiving in New York
Take a bite of the Big Apple at the most wonderful time of the year!
As Thanksgiving ushers in the Christmas season, you’ll be in the middle of it all as you check-in to New York’s best address located directly on Times Square. 5 nights – Marriott Marquis (D)
Disney on Broadway’s Behind the Magic tour is set in the historic New Amsterdam Theatre, original home of the Ziegfeld Follies, on famed 42nd Street. After this behind-the-scenes experience, head to Rockefeller Center for lunch and to see the sites there from the iconic Channel Gardens, Saks Fifth Avenue (and their stunning holiday window displays) and of course St. Patrick’s Cathedral. An afternoon drive Uptown will encircle Central Park and include stops at Strawberry Fields and Lincoln Center. The evening is yours to explore. Monday is a great night to expand your theatrical horizons with an Off-Broadway show. (L)
Travel like a real New Yorker – by subway – Downtown for lunch featuring syndicated theatre critic Peter Filichia to learn what’s hot and what’s not on the Great White Way. The afternoon focuses on the past and present of the World Trade Center where you’ll visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum and take in the breathtaking view from One World Observatory located high atop the 1776-foot-tall building dubbed Freedom Tower. Tonight is your first taste of Broadway, the long-anticipated stage adaptation of Moulin Rouge starring Broadway royalty Karen Olivo and Aaron Tveit. (L)
Join your Tour Director for a morning adventure to Liberty and Ellis Islands by subway and ferry. The afternoon is yours for personal exploration. How about a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art or shopping on famed Fifth Avenue? The family-style Italian dinner at Carmine’s is a New York tradition, followed by “Choose Your Own Show” which means exactly what it says. You pick the show and we get the tickets – a Sports Leisure exclusive. (D)
It’s the exciting Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Join the anxious throngs on the streets or watch on television in the comfort (and warmth!) of your room. The parade route is along 6th Avenue only one block from the hotel. An early-afternoon feast is served at world-famous Delmonico’s. In the evening journey to Radio City Music Hall for the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular. (D)
The short trip to LaGuardia Airport for your early afternoon flight brings Thanksgiving in New York to a close.
