Planning a weekend getaway to the Big Apple? You can fit quite a lot into a NYC weekend getaway, from shopping and going to Broadway shows, TV show tapings, film festivals, seasonal events, museums and restaurants to catching a ball game at Citi Field or Yankee Stadium, attending a concert at Madison Square Garden, and taking in the High Line, Central Park and Times Square, according to travel experts.
However, to really experience and enjoy what NYC has to offer without feeling overwhelmed, travel experts suggest focusing on one or two areas during your stay, figuring out your goals ahead of time, and scheduling your activities accordingly.
“The goal is to stick to one localized region and experience the sights, sounds and tastes of that area,” travel experts say. “Just like enjoying a slice of NYC pizza, take it one bite at a time and savor it while you can.”
Why a Dinner Cruise Is the Best Way to See NYC
The most convenient way of achieving this while maximizing your weekend trip and eliminating the hassle of traffic is to book a New York City dinner cruise aboard the Skyline Princess, the premier NYC luxury yacht of Skyline Cruises!
All of NYC’s historic and iconic landmarks – the Freedom Tower, the United Nations headquarters, Ellis Island, Governors Island, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, South Street Seaport, Chelsea Piers and the Brooklyn Bridge – can easily be seen from the Skyline Princess. In fact, Skyline’s NYC dinner cruises bring the majestic Manhattan skyline so close that you could almost reach out and touch it!
While you enjoy scrumptious food for dinner and dessert, and coffee, tea and refreshing drinks from a full cash bar, you’ll be surrounded by spectacular panoramic views from all three of our climate-controlled decks aboard the Skyline Princess.
Energetic DJ entertainment adds an element of fun to Skyline’s entire NYC dinner cruise experience, which also features personalized seating for your group aboard our year-round, all-weather vessel.
All of our Manhattan skyline cruises set sail from the World’s Fair Marina in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York, and our dinner cruise packages include free parking at the marina.
