Central Park Sightseeing Bike Tour
There’s no better time than spring to cruise on two wheels through Central Park. This is the season of blooms, when Central Park is bursting with flowers and lush greenery rises up around every bend. Plus, biking is one of the best ways to maximize your time in the nation’s most popular city park – you can see a lot more of this natural wonderland by pedaling instead of walking. Follow a city-licensed guide as you discover hidden waterfalls, cast-iron bridges – and plenty of famous scenes straight out of the movies. Buy tickets to Central Park Sightseeing Tour

Kick off the season by indulging in the lush Anastasia, Broadway’s newest hit show. Inspired by the 1997 animated film, the story follows a Russian orphan on a musical adventure that takes her from her home country to 1920s Paris. The rousing original score appeals to all ages.

Who needs an orchestra when you have buckets, pans and broomsticks? Since 1994, this smash hit has been marching to its own unique beat. The talented cast takes the stage at the Orpheum Theater in the East Village to bang out amazing sounds and stomping rhythms using everything but the kitchen sink. This is the perfect show to put the spring into your step for spring. Buy tickets to Stomp

Top of the Rock
High above the famous Rockefeller Center is the best view in New York City. Towering 850 feet over 5th Avenue, Top of the Rock offers bird’s eye views of Central Park in all its spring glory, plus the mighty skyline, including the art deco Empire State Building. Ride the elevator up (and up) to the outdoor decks on the 67th and 69th floors, and then climb to the 70th floor for unbeatable 360-degree vistas. Time your visit with sunset, so you can see the sun dip into the horizon, and the city light up. Buy tickets to Top of the Rock

Big Bus New York 2-Day All Loop Pass
Pressed for time? Climb aboard to see the city’s iconic sights from the comfort of an open-air double decker Big Bus. With the 2-Day All Loop Pass, you can go uptown, downtown or across the river to Brooklyn. Along the way, you’ll see the Brooklyn Bridge, the Chrysler Building, Apollo Theater and much more.
