These are hotels with names you’ll recognize, but at great savings! Some hotels even offer an extra night free if you stay three or more nights.
New York City has something great for people of all ages and all sorts of interests. Did you know that the city is home to a couple of awesome amusement parks?
Luna Park in Coney Island. Luna Park opened up in May of 2010. The park has 19 rides, six games and five food kiosks. During its first season, over 450,000 people visited the park!
Victorian Gardens. Victorian Gardens is located in Central Park. The park has fourteen rides, including the Red Baron and the Kite Flyer. On weekends, family entertainment is provided. Interactive shows, such as King Henry and his magic tricks, clowns Sammie and Tudie, and Cowboy Chris, get the audience involved and everyone has a good time.
Maybe amusement park rides aren’t quite your thing, but check out these two other types of rides.
Helicopter Tour. For a very reasonable fee, you can have a tour of Manhattan, Ellis Island, the home of the Statue of Liberty, and several other sites in a one hour tour. Just imagine being able to view the city from above. The view is already spectacular from the Empire State Building and the Top of the Rock. Yet, the view from the helicopter is so much greater than the view from these buildings!
Sightseeing cruise. Although there is a ferry that goes back and forth to Ellis Island, you might enjoy participating in a sightseeing cruise. You can take a long, leisurely cruise or a quick speed boat ride. Both are guaranteed to be a lot of fun and a unique way of enjoying the beauty of NYC.
If possible, plan to stay at least three nights in NYC. You’ll discover there is so much to see and do. You’ll never get bored! Go online and find one of the many nice cheap NYC hotels and make your reservation. Have a great time in the “city that never sleeps”!
