I appreciate all the help I've received in regards to my other questions and I have a pretty big one now.
We have the airline booked, the hotel (UES), and now its time for me to decided on our activities so that I can buy tickets in advance to avoid lines/wait times.
We'll be in Friday Nov 29 (evening arrival) and leave Thursday December 5 (afternoon departure). So, 6 nights. We want to pack as much as possible into our trip. We don't do down time. But I don't want to be unrealistic in travel times across the city either. I guess I'm just asking for help setting up days and realistically what can be fit into them :)
After researching, these things are on our MUST DO list:
Top of the Rock
Rockettes Christmas Spectacular (we have tickets to the Sat Nov 30 10pm show)
Wollman Ice Skating at Central Park at night (i'm a Serendipity goof ^_-)
Rockefeller Tree (will be lit Wed Dec 4th this year so we will have to see it that night)
Staten Island Ferry OR NY Water Taxi
Central Park during the day (explore)
Times Square (just see it, don't care to explore)
And if we have more time, these things are on our MAYBE SEE list:
Serendipity (for a frozen hot chocolate)
Hop on / Hop off sightseeing
One of the art museums
Brooklyn Bridge (walk it?)
Empire State Building
I'd also like to shop a bit too but not expensively so any recommendations for NOT upscale shopping places would be SUPERB!
Thanks ladies and gents! You are all wonderful!Edited: 05 October 2013, 22:45
