Have extra days? NYC has plenty to offer!

Here are some plans you can do in New York if you have extra time:

  • Color Factory and the Museum of Ice-cream are just 10 minutes apart from each other. Both plans are fun, cool and full of traits! You can easily spend a full morning or full afternoon here!
  • If you want to hop on a doors-off helicopter flight, know in advance that you’ll need a bit of extra time. You need to travel all the way to New Jersey and be there 2 hours before your flight! I highly recommend combining this activity with a visit to Liberty State Park, with epic views to Downtown Manhattan.
  • If you’re looking for some adrenaline, head to Luna Park in Coney Island!
  • One of my favorite plans in NYC was the sunset boat tour with champagne: so magical!
  • Do you have limited time in the city? Make sure to save time with a Hop On Hop Off Bus!
