New York City is such a bustling town with so much action right outside your hotel in Times Square. After we leave we’ll post pictures each day so you can look in on the fun we’re having. Join us next year with departures on May 19th or August 25th, 2019

August 26, 2018- Sunday, Today was strictly a travel day with a nice Sunday dinner at the Golden Corral. It’s hot out, but cool in the bus. Tonight we stay at the Hampton Inn in Maumee Ohio.

August 27, 2018-Monday, We’re on the road today stopping for a lunch break and tour at the National Packard Museum in Warren Ohio. These cars are gorgeous. The colors are so classic. Back on the highway we’ll travel through Pennsylvania and onto New Jersey to the Holiday Inn in Mount Arlington. Tonight we’ll make signs for our upcoming visit to the Today Show.

August 28, 2018 – Tuesday, We arrived in New York City and picked up our guide for a city tour. After going through the Lincoln Tunnel, we stopped for a walk about through Central Park. Driving through the city, we stopped at Grand Central Station for lunch and continued to Wall Street for another walk. We then saw the 911 Memorial Park and boarded the subway to Times Square where our hotel is. After dinner tonight we all went to see the show Aladdin.

August 29, 2018 – Wednesday, What a hot but exciting day. This morning we all went to the Today Show and sure enough soon we were getting phone calls from back home telling us we were on TV. It was great. Our next visit was the Top of the Rock for views of the Empire State Building, Central Park and all of lower Manhattan. St Patricks Cathedral was just around the corner and such an impressive church. We then had a guided tour inside Radio City Music Hall. Free time for the afternoon and evening to walk about and see more Broadway Shows.

August 30, 2018 – Thursday, This morning we went to the 911 Museum. It’s an important and sad part of  of our history. A more uplifting stop was the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We went inside the Statue and had time to see the exhibits at Ellis Island. It was our last full day of New York City sightseeing. Tonight we travel out of the city to Stroudsburg Pennsylvania.

August 31, 2018 – Friday, Today was mostly a travel day with a much appreciated stop at the Quarry Hill Winery. It was a good chance to stretch our legs, sample and purchase some fine wine. Tonight we’ll stay in Holiday City Ohio.

September 1, 2018 – Saturday, It’s our last day together. We had a great time sightseeing in New York City seeing so many places we see on TV. It’s a great chance to see a different type of lifestyle and compare with our own. Everyone had such a good time.
