Description

from Times Square and Midtown Sites & Bites
Midtown Manhattan is the center of it all with Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, and more. This is the neighborhood you think of when you think of New York City. Explore the neighborhood with our expert guides from Urban Adventures who will give you the inside scoop on all the major sights. You’ll learn everything about Times Square from its beginnings as a way station along old colonial roads to its brilliant neon and theatrical present. You’ll see beautiful Rockefeller Center, its iconic skating rink, and amazing art work. You’ll also visit Grand Central Terminal, one of the busiest and most beautiful train stations in the world. And along the way we’ll feed you too! Our guides will take you into some of our favorite places to eat in the neighborhood where you will sample and snack your way through the afternoon on delicious foods from small local shops. Tastes will include iconic pizza, gourmet coffee, and dishes that highlight New York City’s vibrant food culture. Many of the places we’ll take you are really hidden away and while most visitors to New York City are stuck going to chain restaurants and Starbucks, the guests on our tour will get a real taste of New York City while seeing some of the world’s most famous buildings, theaters, and avenues.

Our NYC tour will start in Grand Central Terminal, the most historical transportation hub in the USA. We’ll explore the massive building and its incredible architecture, and learn where you can grab some local NY State food and drink. You’ll even take a hidden passage out to the street to avoid the crowds at the entrance — talk about a true secret insider’s tip!

Afterwards, we’ll head out through the skyscrapers of Midtown where you’ll uncover some short cuts, tunnels, and a few hyper-local spots for dining and shopping — places you definitely would have never found on your own! The neighborhood might be filled with tourists and chain restaurants, but we’re here to help you discover the hidden local faves! Of course, no tour of Midtown would be complete without seeing the bright lights of Broadway. Picture it: you’re standing right in the center of Times Square surrounded by flashing billboards, giant TV screens, and dozens of Broadway theaters, right in the midst of it all. Pretty epic feeling, right? While you’re soaking it all in, you’ll learn about the evolution of Broadway and how theater transformed Times Square from the middle of nowhere to one of the most famous destinations in the world. We’ll also point out the hidden façades, history, and Broadway stories you might not have otherwise discovered. Plus, we’ll share our tips for snagging discount theater tickets and tell you about our favorite shows, as well as where to catch great off-Broadway shows.

Finally, we’ll end our tour with a classic tasting of the best slice of New York pizza in the neighborhood and a visit to one of our favorite local markets for dessert. By the end of this tour you’ll have some amazing photos in front of iconic buildings and landmarks, an insider’s local knowledge of the food and drinks scene, and the scoop on where to get discount theater tickets and catch great shows around the city.
