The towering lights and sky-scraper-sized Jumbotrons of Times Square are a memorable image to most everyone in modern times. And there's no better way to experience this quintessential New York City moment than on top of a 14-foot high, open-air bus traveling through the veins of Times Square. Parents and children alike will love this tour because it's fun, unique and you can set your own pace — hopping on or off when you please. Did we mention it's pretty economical, too?
Get on the internet for the best prices including an "All Around Town" pass that is $49 for adults and $39 for children. This ticket is valid for 48 hours and includes must-see New York City neighborhoods such as downtown, uptown, Harlem and Brooklyn. There's also a night tour and the company throws in a 90-minute harbor cruise and a ticket to the Museum of the City of New York.
Pack a full day — or two if you wish — into this tour and you can hit all the hot spots. View the new Freedom Tower in the Financial District, then head up to the East Village for lunch on Indian Row. From there, spend your afternoon enjoying the historic uptown neighborhoods of Turtle Bay — across the street from the United Nations building and home to famous author Kurt Vonnegut — or check out Harlem for some immersion in jazz history. You get experienced tour guide information while on the bus, too. There are many tours that CitySights operates, so, be sure to check the internet for departure details and times.
