Day 1 – Home to New York City, NY 

Today we will meet up with our group and fly from MSP to Newark. Once we arrive, we will check in the Sheraton Times Square in the heart of Times Square where we can walk to many restaurants and easily enjoy the holiday season in NYC. Tonight’s Welcome Dinner is just a short walk to The Redeye Grill.  We will thoroughly enjoy the evening as the food and atmosphere are top notch! 

Included Meals: Dinner 

Hotel: Sheraton Times Square (4 Nights) 

 

Day 2 – New York City 

We will start exploring NYC by land today after you’ve enjoyed breakfast on your own. An expert local guide joins us as we head first to Downtown – we’ll explore where ’it all began’ as we drive through historic Lower Manhattan, including Wall Street and the Financial District. Of course, along the way, we’ll pass through such fascinating neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, Chinatown, and Manhattan’s Little Italy. After a full day with our guide Mike, we will have learned so much about several American Christmas traditions and the history of Santa Claus in NYC! We will return to our hotel in time to rest & even get freshened up before a fun-filled evening. You will want to catch an early dinner on our own before we make our way to the grand Broadway Play, “The Lion King!” Since opening on Broadway in 1997, it has become the most successful musical in history! Prepare to be wowed! 

 

Day 3 – New York City 

This morning you will enjoy breakfast on your own. There are several dining options to choose from, all within walking distance or even right at the hotel. We will then meet up with our step on guide once again! First we will travel to Uptown and ‘Da Bronx’! We’ll drive through world-famous Harlem, past the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Columbia University, and of course, the Apollo Theater. Then we head to ‘the Real Little Italy in NY’ – Arthur Avenue. Next we will depart for a wonderful buffet luncheon cruise along the Hudson River while on board the Spirit of New York. We’ll thoroughly enjoy taking in all the magnificent sights from the water’s perspective! Then we’ll see it all from the sky atop one of the exciting new observation decks in the city – ‘The Edge’. The Edge is the highest sky deck in the Western Hemisphere with a one-of-a-kind design. It’s suspended in mid-air, giving one the feeling of floating in the sky with 360˚ views you can’t get anywhere else. Look 100 stories down from the thrilling glass floor, lean out over the city on angled glass walls and sip champagne in the sky. You’ve never experienced New York like this before! This evening is at your leisure, although you may wish to join your tour director at some of the attractions outside of Rockefeller Center, where you can watch the ice skaters, take in all the Christmas decorations like the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and even visit some of the shops. The best holiday markets are right here in NYC, full of both the holiday spirit and the most unique gifts out there! While fancy Christmas window displays may entice you, NYC’s holiday markets often include ice skating, tree lightings, great food vendors, and fun holiday activities. Shopping for the perfect gift comes easy at these fun holiday markets. 

Included Meals: Lunch 

 

Day 4 – New York City 

Hopefully you have had a chance to enjoy a great breakfast at the local deli. If not, today is a good day to do so as breakfast is on your own. We will meet back up with our guide at the hotel for a fun day of touring “must sees.” We’ll see and experience places like taking an unforgettable stroll through the amazing Central Park, continuing on to Midtown and a visit to Grand Central Terminal. A memorable visit to the 9/11 Memorial Site & Museum is planned as well as more time at the festive Christmas Markets. Mike has so much in store for us today as we explore together! Then we say goodbye to our new friend, Mike, and return to the hotel to get freshened up for dinner on your own. Lastly, we will take a short walk to Radio City Music Hall where we will take in a special Christmas tradition, the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular. This 90-minute musical holiday stage show features more than 140 performers and an original musical score, and combines singing, dancing, and humor with traditional scenes. This is a great way to end our wonderful visit to NYC at Christmastime! 

 

Day 5 – New York City to Home

As you enjoy one last breakfast on your own in the Big Apple, you will have time to reflect on ALL that you have taken in and learned about NYC! It’s been a spectacular journey to reminisce about with all of the new friends you have met!
