See the very best of Manhattan on this comprehensive full-day tour. Leaving the pier, you will first travel to midtown and Rockefeller Plaza. Home to NBC's Today Show, the Plaza is also the annual location for New York's spectacular Christmas tree and the nostalgic ice-skating rink. Your visit here gives you the opportunity to ascend to the Top of the Rock Observatory and be treated to some fabulous and breathtaking panoramic views of the city from this 70-story high observation platform.
After this exhilarating experience, re-board your motor coach and travel to the Financial District. You will be visiting St Paul Chapel & The 9/11 Memorial. St. Paul's Chapel, where President George Washington paused to pray after his inauguration. Presently St. Paul's contains exhibits and memorabilia relating to the 9/11 attacks. You will then walk to the 9/11 Memorial, which consists of 2 massive pools set within the original footprints of the Twin Towers with 30-foot waterfalls cascading down their sides. Take some time to reflect and pay your respects to those that lost their lives there and view New York’s tallest building, One World Trade.
Your tour next makes its way to Grand Central Terminal, both a transportation hub and destination in itself for visitors to New York City. The charming beaux-arts building has undergone restoration to bring it back to its former glory. Here, you can enjoy some free time to explore and purchase some luncheon. You will be afforded approximately 75 minutes of free time here to shop and have lunch on your own before re-joining your coach.
Following your break for lunch, enjoy a scenic drive past Central Park, along Fifth Avenue and through Times Square before making your way to Herald Square. This neighborhood remains predominately a shopping district and you will get a chance to pass by the landmark facade of Macy's, the world's largest department store which is famous not just for shopping, but for its parades as well. Other areas you will see today are Madison Square Garden, the world famous arena that hosts sporting events and entertainment shows; Greenwich Village and SoHo, the fashionable area nicknamed for its "South of Houston Street" location; Chinatown; the financial district and Wall Street. Inside visit of St. Paul Chapel is not included.
Filled with the sights and sounds of a day spent discovering New York, your coach will drop you back at the pier where your ship awaits.
