Description

Take a Bite Out of New York, New York for Four Days & Three Nights at Your Choice of the Westin New York Grand Central, the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel or Element New York Times Square West with Economy Class Air for Two, Including a Cocktail Tour and a New York Pizza, Beer and History Tour

Paint yourself into the awe-inspiring New York City skyline with a trip to the Big Apple, a city like no other! From Times Square to Union Square, Broadway to Central Park, the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty, eclectic corners to cosmopolitan centers, museums to world-renowned landmarks, Manhattan will mesmerize you, whether this is your first or tenth visit! And with sophisticated accommodations in one of three midtown hotels, you’ll be able to explore this fascinating city by day (and night!), and return to luxury and comfort every day.

Get ready to sip and sample on your New York City cocktail tour, which starts in Tompkins Square Park in the East Village. This site is famed for being the gathering place for political radicals and socialists, as well as the city’s immigrant poor — an appropriate place to begin since so much of the city's cocktail culture was invented by these very same people. This happy hour tour will take you to the center of New York’s booming cocktail culture as you visit some of the best bars in the city. Along the way, you'll sample delicious libations, swap tales of speakeasies and gangsters, shop for new locally produced spirits, learn how to make craft cocktails, and discover some of the best places to grab a drink in the Big Apple.

Then raise your glass and toast those who have come before us on a delicious pizza and beer tour of Greenwich Village, a cultural mecca on the West side. Walk in the footsteps of some of America's best-known writers, artists and musicians, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jackson Pollock, Dylan Thomas and Bob Dylan as you chat all while savoring three pizza samplings and two beer tastings. No neighborhood does pizza quite like Greenwich Village, with everything from amazing coal-fired thin crust pies, to traditional New York slices dripping with mozzarella cheese and oil, to newer pizzaiolis (pizza makers), many recent immigrants from Italy, who are showcasing how pizza is cooked in their home regions in the Old Country. Toast to these Village legends at two of the West Village's most famous and notorious bars, including a former speakeasy!
