This sample itinerary showcases the attractions your tour group can visit on an exciting, 5-day Theater Tour in New York City. The lights of Broadway create one of the most inspiring attractions in our nation today, and this tour lets students visit them again and again. See a Broadway performance every night of your stay. Then fill your days with workshops, cultural centers, and some of Manhattan’s best.
Start with a Fifth Avenue Walking Tour. View the city from Top of the Rock at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Be overwhelmed and inspired by the brilliant lights and energy of Times Square after dark. Then take in your first Broadway performance of the trip and realize everything you came here for.
How about some shopping for tonight’s performance at Macy’s Herald Square? That’s right – this iconic department store is one city square. You’ll also tour Lincoln Center, a beautiful cultural center for the arts. Then experience a Broadway Workshop and learn the choreography, acting tips, or behind-the-scenes magic of a Broadway show, taught by Broadway professionals, and possibly even tied to the show you’ll see in the evening!
You’ve been above it, now tour within Rockefeller Center, including the NBC Studios. Central Park is sure to be a favorite walking tour for every member of your travel group. Find inspiration in every corner of the beautiful Metropolitan Museum of Art. Then take in the comedy, musicality, drama, or innovation of another Broadway show.
Ready for another Broadway Classroom? That’s where today begins. You’ll also visit one of our country’s greatest landmarks with a cruise to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. After that, take a guided tour through some of NY’s famous neighborhoods, including SoHo, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Greenwich Village. Of course, you’ll have more Broadway in the evening!
Departure day may be the most moving of all thanks to a powerful view of the World Trade Center rebuilding site from the windows of the beautiful Winter Garden.
