Keep Your Midtown Visit Brief

Midtown Manhattan is the city’s urban core, and in the summertime, it is both hot and crowded. If you’re headed to NYC on a bus tour, go to Midtown to see the Empire State Building and Times Square, and then get out. Uptown and downtown are more pleasant and authentic areas of the city.

Explore Central Park

Central Park is astoundingly pleasant in the summertime, with far fewer people than you see in the fall and spring months. In Central Park, you can explore beautiful gardens, walk tree-lined paths, and even take a swim at Lasker Pool at 108th street. If you hear music, feel free to head to the source—it’s probably a free outdoor concert.

Walk Through the West Village

The West and Greenwich Villages should be quintessential parts of your charter bus trip to New York City in the summertime. Taste the organic fruit at the Union Square Greenmarket, and then head over to Washington Square Park for coffee at a classic Italian café. As the sun sets, go to the Hudson River Park to watch a classic movie screened outdoors, underneath the stars.

Head South

No trip to New York City is complete without a few photos of the Statue of Liberty. Take a boat tour to Liberty Island for a close-up experience, or take the Staten Island Ferry for an excellent view of Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. Afterward, stroll around Brooklyn Heights and Prospect Park, and then grab an ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
