Daily Itinerary

1. 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)

2. Begin your exploration of The Big Apple at the new Museum of Broadway, a spectacular repository of all things theatre from the age of Vaudeville to the Ziegfeld Follies to the present. Then 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)

3. 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. Today's sightseeing 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.” With 9 Tony Award nominations, New York, New York is Clayton's pick for tonight, a brand new production in the classic style including music from the songbook of Kander and Ebb with new material by Lin-Manuel Miranda (of Hamilton fame). Would you rather see something else? Just let us know! (L)

4. Take 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 the ticket to the year's most celebrated show with 13 Tony nominations, Some Like It Hot! Yes, the Marilyn Monroe/Tony Curtis/Jack Lemmon movie has been re-imagined and modernized with amazing results! The critics and audiences, alike, are loving this new take on an old tale. (D)

5. 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. In the afternoon, journey to Radio City Music Hall for the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular. A Thanksgiving dinner cruise follows aboard the elegant glass-roofed Bateaux New York featuring excellent food, live music and great sightseeing as the stars come out over the Big Apple. (D)

6. Sleep late (or maybe hit the Black Friday sales?) as we have a direct flight home from Newark Airport. Lunch is served at Sardi's (famous for their star caricatures lining the walls from ceiling to floor), with dessert served at the sweetest spot on Times Square - Hershey's Chocolate World. (L)
