Spring is a perfect time to visit Manhattan … the weather is mild and the summer crowds haven’t arrived yet and we’ve sweetened the deal with tickets to see two new Broadway musicals and a new a major exhibition by world-renowned sculptor Dale Chihuly! You’ll see Broadway’s 2017 hottest anticipated hit starring Bette Midler in her return to the stage in the classic musical favorite, Hello, Dolly!, and the brand new musical, Anastasia. Also opening this spring is CHIHULY, an experience with monumental installations within and around the most celebrated sites in the New York Botanical Gardens.

Included is a guided sightseeing tour as well as plenty of time to explore the city on your own. Take a ferry to the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island, shop at some of the greatest stores in the world, view the city from the Empire State Building’s observation deck or on a Hudson River cruise. Dine in style, from casual delis and food carts to ethnic and top restaurants with celebrity chefs.

Stay in Times Square, close to theaters, dining and shopping.

Itinerary Hotel

Wed, Apr 26: Depart Indianapolis for Newark, New Jersey. Transfer to New York City with a guided sightseeing tour en route to your Times Square hotel. Check into the New York Marriott Marquis for three nights. Remainder of the day at leisure.

Thu, Apr 27: A full day is yours to explore New York City on your own. Meet in the evening to attend the Broadway musical, Anastasia. Based on the 1997 animated movie, Anastasia spans the twilight of the Russian Empire to the glamour of 1920s Paris. The story follows an orphaned amnesiac, Anya, who claims to be the youngest daughter of Russia’s last Tsar, Nicholas II. The production has added 16 new numbers to the movie’s songs.

Fri, Apr 28: Today enjoy another free day to explore the city or catch a matinee. Tonight, regroup to see Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! The story is based on the book The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder. Midler plays one of the most beloved characters in American Musical Comedy, Dolly Levi, a matchmaker in 1890s New York City. David Hyde Pierce (Niles Crane in TV’s Frasier and Sir Robin in Broadway’s Monty Python’s Spamalot) stars as Horace Vandergelder, the object of her “meddling” and affections.

Sat, Apr 29: After checking out of the hotel, visit the New York Botanical Gardens, hosting a Chihuly glass art exhibit with a botanical backdrop. New hand-blown glass sculptures, created specifically for NYBG, will highlight the connections of artwork to the natural world. Celebrating 125 years of garden history, the New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum and, since its founding in 1891, has served as an oasis in this busy metropolis. As a National Historic Landmark, this 250-acre site’s verdant landscape supports over one million living plants in extensive collections.
