Any suggestions or ideas would be appeciated. I have searched on many sites about different things to see, do, eat and stay in New York. But the more i read the more i get confused!! We are staying at the Intercontinenetial TS on the 24-29 Aug. We are going for our 30th bday and would love to see all the main sites, we also eat everything apart from sushi.
We arrive at JFK at 12.30pm and are hoping to drop bags off and go exploring. Here is a rough intinary of what i was thinking.
Drop bags off around 2.30pm?
Go to Madame Tussauds
TOTR - which is the best time to watch the sun go down?
Water taxi, 9/11 memorial
World trade center
Shopping at Century 21 and will explore to see what we fancy for lunch!
Dinner at Trattoria Trecolori.
Central Park eat picnic for lunch?
Water cruise (SOL)
Empire state building observational deck
Madison square garden? Would like to try Shake Shack.
Maybe just stay local to TS or revisit places or shop.
Leaving NYC at 5pm was thinking of catching Olympia Newark Airport Express to the aiport. (Newark).
We might see if we can get any tickets to watch a musicial on the fri or sat night. Also we are going to purchase the 3 day New York Pass.
Any help or alterations would be great, Sun & Mon are our only full days. So would like to make the most of it. We are going to try & walk everywhere apart from the cruises we get with the pass.
Get dinner at Bubba Gump and explore the area on the way back to hotel.
