Sightseeing in NY--There is a Coupon for That!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Are you planning a trip to NYC? I have lived near NYC my entire life and still haven’t seen all there is to see. The admission fees do tend to be high so it will be in your best interest to purchase the New York pass coupon; it will definitely save you money. Depending on how long you will be visiting and what your primary reason to be here is, work or family vacation-please make sure to visit at least some of the sites to be enjoyed in this great city. Make sure to map out what you want to see in advance so you see the sites in the same area in the same day if possible!

If you have your children then I would really suggest one or two of the fabulous zoos—there is the Brooklyn Zoo, the NY Aquarium but The Bronx Zoo is my favorite and you could spend almost an entire day there. Of course the NY Botanical Gardens is very near to the Bronx Zoo so you might want to stop in there on the same day. The American Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum always have new and exciting exhibits. The Cloisters Museum and Gardens is also magnificent and overlooks the Hudson River.

I have never taken the Circle Line Sightseeing cruise around Manhattan-but one of these days I will!! Another thing I have never done is taken the on again off again bus tour—it sure saves on time and gets you to where you want to go a lot quicker-- but then as a native I feel it is my sworn duty to walk or take a regular bus or subway. My Mother trained me from a very young age. The Intrepid Air & Space Museum is on the same street as the pickup point for the Circle line.

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum is a must see—and after being wowed in there stroll around the theater district and Times Square. The Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty at Ellis Island are must see as well.

Actually, this pass has attractions all over the 5 boroughs and also has a walking food tour. Believe me when I tell you—there is almost nothing you can’t find in culinary delights in one of the NY boroughs somewhere. My favorite is still the hot dog stands which can be found on every other corner or so in Manhattan (I really hope my Mother does not read this!!).

Yes, I would like to know New York, but I have no money. I'd like to do before I die.

I had the opportunity to visit New York City when I was in highschool. That is a long, long time ago! I would love to go back someday, finances permitting. You've listed some great places to see!

Love that you found a coupon! If you search long and hard enough you can find a discount coupon or a pass to just about everything!
Looks like you had a great time.

I went to NYC once in the early-to-mid 1980s. I remember several young men coming up to wash the windows of our vehicle when we came out of one of the tunnels, and being approached by someone wanting to sell me and my friends drugs in a local park in Greenwich Village.

Would love to go back someday and see a play on Broadway. But huge crowds are not so much my thing these days as they used to be.

I've been to NYC once and would love to go back!! My husband went a couple years back with some buddies and didn't care for it much....they were on their way to bigger and brighter things (Africa) they weren't really the NYC type...but what a place to go with your girlfriends.

I love the PASS coupon books. We used them in Atlanta and Toronto. Great for a family. Look forward to seeing you again next Thirsty for Comments Thursday.
