Start your day off just right by indulging in a classic bagel and cream cheese paired with a good cup of coffee at a noteworthy place called Zabar’s on Broadway and 80th. After enjoying that delicious bagel while taking in the stunning views of the Hudson, head on over to Central Park West where you’ll get to experience the beautiful Strawberry Fields, the Bethesda Terrace, and eventually arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Be sure to take your time at Central Park allowing anything that moves you or catches your eye become part of the adventure.

Central Park

Once you’ve worked up an appetite from all of that wandering, consider having lunch at the Grand Central Oyster Bar where you can fill up with tasty seafood before spending the afternoon walking through Fifth Avenue and Times Square. Grab an ice cream from one of the street vendors to eat on your way – by cab or Citi Bike – to West Village where inviting boutiques, cupcake shops, and taverns await your arrival.

Times Square

Spend your evening in the Lower East Side where an array of excellent dining options are located all within walking distance to even better spots to enjoy a drink or few after your long day of exploring. Whether you are in the mood for small and cozy or upscale and fancy, you are sure to find it all; helping to end your perfect day in New York in the most perfect way. Head back to your hotel (consider the Ace Hotel or the Nolitan) and get some rest before waking up and discovering even more the next day of what makes New York such a unique and incredible city.
