Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or you simply want to spend some quality time with your girls, New York is always a good idea. The Big Apple has so much to offer, and you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to creating your itinerary. If you’re starting to plan a fun-filled escape to NYC, here are some ideas to make it a weekend to remember.
Preparation is often the key to success when it comes to travelling in a group. If there are more than four of you, booking rooms and transport can be a little more complex. Search online for group bookings for hotels and think about how you’re getting to get around when you’re there.
If you are part of a large group, look out for party apartments or holiday rentals. To make travelling around easier, you could hire a minibus or coach. Search sites like http://www.nyccharterbuscompany.com/ to find out more.
Once you’ve got transport and accommodation ticked off, you can start thinking about where you want to go, and what you want to do.
No trip to NYC is complete without all the tourist hot spots. Even if you’ve been countless times before, don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy a visit to the Statue of Liberty with your gal pals. Pose for group shots, enjoy the boat ride and take in the stunning views of the city. If rooftop views are your bag, the Empire State Building never fails to deliver.
New York is retail utopia, so set aside a day for shopping. Visit Macy’s, SAKS, Bloomingdales and Barney’s. Away from the magnates on Fifth Avenue, embrace the quirky, hip boutiques of Soho. If you’re into Bohemian fashion, head to the East Village.
After a day of serious shopping, channel the Sex and the City girls with a pre-dinner drink. Head back to your apartment, put some music on and get ready for a night on the tiles. You can find details of NYC’s most popular bars and clubs at http://www.timeout.com/newyork/bars/50-best-new-york-bars. Sample the Cosmopolitans and Manhattans, dance the night away, or enjoy the nighttime cityscape from a rooftop bar.
After a heavy night, start your recovery with a pamper session at the spa. Relax those tired eyes and recharge your batteries ready for the day ahead. After a facial or massage, head to brunch. Grab an authentic New York coffee and try out the bagels, pancake stacks and maple syrup. Now you’re ready and raring to go, head to Times Square and embrace the hustle and bustle. Dom some more shopping, or check out a gallery. Spend the afternoon at Central Park before catching a Broadway Show in the evening.
