Me and my boyfriend are off to NYC in November (A while to wait yet I know!) for five nights, 13th - 18th. I have been before but my boyfriend hasn't, so we will be doing all the normal touristy things. I have done an itinerary for the five days and I was hoping I could get some feedback on whether our plans are doable in the time in which we have or of course any tips and ideas are greatly appreciated! Let me know what you think!!....
Wed 13th Nov
Flying with Virgin, hopefully land around 5:30pm, grab a yellow cab to our hotel (ROW NYC near Times Square). Freshen up and head to the Times Square and grab something quick to eat and have a wonder around. Then back to the hotel for hopefully a good sleep!
Thurs - 14th Nov
Breakfast somewhere quick and then head to the subway to Battery Park to see SOL (We will have booked tickets in advance with StatueCrusies). Do you have to go to Ellis Island, or can we catch a ferry back to Battery Park and miss Ellis Island out? Then on to the 9/11 Memorial (Nearer the time we will book the time slot). Walk around the Financial District to see the bull, Wall St etc and have a quick snack somewhere. I was then hoping to get the subway to Brooklyn and walk the Brooklyn Bridge back to Battery Park. Head back to our hotel and go out for dinner and maybe some cocktails.
Fri 15th Nov (My Birthday!!)
Breakfast, then on to Central Park/ Central Park Zoo/ ice-skating, grab a snack and then to Apple Shop and FAO Schwarz. Back to hotel to get ready for my birthday meal, Club A Steak House? any suggestions on nice restaurants are welcome, but we do love a nice steak! Then maybe some cocktails somewhere!
Sat 16th Nov
Breakfast, Grand Central Station/ Chrysler Building/ shopping etc grab a snack, maybe people watch in Bryant Park and then go to Top Of the Rock for a sunset view! Back to hotel to freshen up and head to Planet Hollywood.
Sun 17th Nov
Breakfast, then American Museum of Natural History and the MET, spend a few hours at both museums and then to Greenwich Village. Back to hotel to get ready for Cocktails in The Strand (recommended by a Friend) then to the Empire State for a night time view of the City. Grab pizza or something easy to take back to the hotel and start to pack to go back home :(
Mon 18th Nov
After breakfast I am not sure what to do on the last day. The plan was to check out, but leave our luggage at the hotel and see things that we haven’t had chance to see. Can anyone give me some advice in what we can do? Our flight isn’t until 7:45pm so we have the morning and part of the afternoon to do as we please.
Thanks for reading! If you have any thoughts or ideas let me know!
I know I am very early in planning, and nothing is set in stone but I am just trying to get an outline of our trip.
