New York Orientation Tour—A Slice of the Big Apple with the Chelsea Enhancement ($100)
Saturday, April 14, 2018 – 9:00am – 1:00pm

"New York, New York, it's a wonderful town. The Bronx is up, but the Battery is…" always running! See all the sights that make the "Big Apple" so special—Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Macy's, Chinatown, SoHo, Greenwich Village, Little Italy—and much, much more. This tour is designed to introduce you to the history, the sights, the cultural attractions, and the ethnic diversity and contributions of the many minorities who call New York their home. Your knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide will give you a savory taste of the "Big Apple" while you learn fascinating insights and discover the real New York (there will be several photo opportunity stops). The High Line was once an old elevated rail road track and sits 29 feet over the Meatpacking District and Chelsea. It is fashioned with linear concrete planked walkways surrounded by trees and wildflowers, a sundeck, an area for public art exhibitions, and the remnants of its past life as an elevated rail structure. The mile-and-a-half long swath of green landscape boasts panoramic views of the Hudson and the magnificent New York City skyline.


Ellis Island—Our National Heritage ($100)
Sunday, April 15, 2018 – 9:00am – 1:00pm

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free….” That’s just what the world did, sending 17 million immigrants through the gates of New York to the United States of America—the land of freedom. The boat ride across New York Harbor to Ellis Island offers splendid panoramas of the lower Manhattan skyline and brushes past the “Lady in the Harbor,” who stands 151 feet tall on an 80-foot pedestal. The Statue of Liberty has welcomed visitors to our shores for more than 125 years, and is known around the world as a symbol of freedom and liberty. Most people don’t realize, however, that the best photos of the statue are from the boat and not the island. Your group will disembark at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, which pays tribute to the millions of brave individuals who fled oppression to start over in the New World. Visit the Baggage and Registration Hall where 40 percent of Americans can trace an ancestor who arrived here. Fascinating exhibits explain the history of the people who came to begin new lives in a city of “streets paved with gold.”
