If you’ve never been to New York City, I’m sure you’ve seen enough television shows and movies to know that it can be quite hectic when it comes to maneuvering through the historic city. Planning a group trip there can be so much fun, but it can also be a little daunting, thinking about the hustle and bustle of the city.
We’ve all seen the streets packed with cars, and taxi cabs, bumper to bumper, but that shouldn’t sway you from not coming to visit this wonderful city! If you think about it, traffic is everywhere, granted, some places have it worse than others, but do you know what the worst part about traffic is? The worst part about traffic is having to drive in it yourself!
If your church group, family reunion, or social organization is considering planning a trip to New York City, especially for a first time visit, plan it out enough to where no one would have to drive, and figure out how to get from one location to the next. When you’re on vacation, you don’t want to have to be the GPS… plan the trip far out enough in advance to where all everyone would need to do is get to New York… everything else will be handled.
When looking to make a memorable trip to New York City, do it the right way! To take in New York, and all the wonders it has to offer, make sure your group experiences New York in these top 3 ways.
Rent a Charter Bus
To experience New York in comfort, your group needs to consider renting a bus. There are so many advantages to renting a bus. Remember that traffic we talked about earlier… with a bus, you don’t have to worry about it. Why? Because someone will be navigating through the traffic for you!
With New York having so many attractions, you don’t want to miss out on any photo opportunities. Not only will everyone be able to capture New York in photos and videos, but you all can experience the city together. No need to worry with all the hassles and stipulations of renting multiple rental cars… a charter will get everyone to the designated locations safe and sound.
Walk the City
Walking around the city is not only a great way to exercise while on the trip, but it’s also a great hands-on way to explore the city. When you look at television shows set in New York, you rarely see anyone in the shows driving around the city. Most of the times, they’re walking.
Walking gives you the opportunity to people watch, familiarize yourself with the locals, and truly get a vibe and feel of the busy city. You’ve seen Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and Newman walking the New York streets numerous times on the hit show Seinfeld. It is on those New York streets where all the people watching occurred that made for years of comedic entertainment.
Cycle the City
This is a great, and inexpensive way to see the city. Although New York is a very busy city, oddly enough, the hustle and bustle doesn’t detract from the cycling opportunities for locals and visitors.
New York has scenic biking routes that allow you to take in all of nature and the beautiful views. People can cycle the greenways along the East and Hudson rivers, and you can’t forget about the iconic parks… Central Park, and Brooklyn Bridge Park! Cycling the city is also a great way to get a hands-on experience of the city, and it’s sure to be an experience you will never forget!
