New York City Breaks
New York city breaks take you to a sprawling metropolis, rich in diversity and colour. At Co-operative Travel we offer bargain city breaks to New York that will bring you back again and again.
New York is a city that’s constantly jostling for your attention and you might find it difficult to squeeze in a visit to every attraction in one trip (especially if you love shopping - 5th Avenue can be quite a distraction!). Organised tours & excursions are an excellent way to cram in as much as possible - our expert travel advisors can recommend the best options to cover your NYC essentials.
Book a Big Yellow Taxi tour and you’ll discover your cab is actually a striking yellow double-decker bus, giving you a birds-eye view of the city’s most iconic sights and monuments: Central Park; the Empire State Building; Carnegie Hall; the Metropolitan Museum; Times Square; the Rockefeller Center and the somewhat sobering 9/11 Memorial Site and Ground Zero. Book a short New York Water Taxi tour, and you’ll cruise by the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governor's Island and the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges.
Our tip: Want to see the Statue of Liberty on the cheap - hop on the Staten Island Ferry. A return trip is a fraction of the cost of any organised tour!
Many last minute New York city breaks are offered with room only – which is the best way. Like Paris, New York is a city that encourages you to dine out, and you’ll find an unlimited supply of restaurants and bars to choose from, each district with its own particular atmosphere and mood. Take breaks to savour the aromas, sights and sounds of Chinatown and Little Italy; enjoy the ambience of Manhattan’s Upper West Side from a pavement café; take a cab to Greenwich Village and picnic in Washington Park, or go boating in nearby Central Park. This is the side of New York breaks that tourists often forget about, but the Big Apple has some beautiful parks and gardens among the skyscrapers.
When it comes to culture, weekend breaks in NYC are hectic but you’ll have so much fun trying to fit everything in. Besides the heritage buildings, galleries and museums there’s concert halls, jazz bars and countless nightclubs – not to mention Broadway. Our bargain city breaks to New York let you take a bite of the Big Apple – but your hunger won’t be satisfied for long and we're pretty sure you'll want to visit again and again.
There are a million and one New York City tour guides out there and we'd always recommend doing your research thoroughly before you travel to make sure you fit as much as possible in to your break. We think there are certain things that are must-sees on a visit to New York, but of course everyone wants slightly different things from their trip, so we'll leave the final decision to you!
