Saw On Your Feet and Book of Mormon. Both outstanding. Would absolutely see them both again, but there are so many incredible shows to see.

Everyone raves about Broadway - WHY????????????? All I got was the impression it was just a road that took you from A to B. There was absolutely nothing exciting about it at all. Of course, in the evening, if you are going to the theater that might be a different matter. But as a sightseeing item all I can ask... More

Busy area with tons to do everywhere. Get your tickets before hand or plan to wait in line. Saw Motown and Aladin both highly entertaining.

I don't even want to over write here and spoil the experience. Get your tickets early it's way cheaper. We did it at about $450 per person but picked the more expensive seats. The line for snacks is really long. You can't take in your own water and snacks they will not allow so don't try. The show was heart... More

The "red line" though Manhattan. Go and see a show, there is something for every taste. We saw the Jersey Boys - a great Show.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
