New York Here We Come!           Click here for additional details.

Meeting:  Wednesday, December 6th  

St. John Middle School Computer Lab!  Tentative Departure Date June 29, 2018  


4 days/3 nights in New York City Summer of 2018
Tentative Travel Date: June 29, 2018 (to be discussed at the meeting)

Meeting:   6pm Wednesday, December 6, 2018
St. John Middle Computer Lab
Who is invited?  
Any adult or student is interested in visiting New York City
                           (Students must travel with an adult.)

            New York City is about the atmosphere and sights of a big city.   The itinerary covers many of the major sights of the city.  Group touring will generally end around dinner.   Often some travelers are interested in attending a Broadway play, while others would like to attend a sporting event or other night event.   With a large group it is very difficult to select a play and seating price range that meets everyone’s wishes.  From previous experience, I have found the best way to handle this situation, is to leave nighttime as free time.   Travelers can plan ahead and purchase tickets to the shows of choice at the price level of choice.   Some may prefer to check the sports schedule, while others may opt for a different night event.   Of course, I am available to offer some suggestions and possibly arrange additional group activities. 

            *Flight to and from New York.
            *Hotel accommodations
            *Continental Breakfast if provided by the hotel.
            *Entrance fees to selected sights.

Consider the places of interest listed below as a sample listing of possible visits.  Itinerary is based on availability and time and will be adjusted accordingly.   Follow me on Facebook as I update pricing and details.
911 Museum                                        One World Observatory                                  Rockefeller Center
St. Patrick’s Cathedral                          Boat Ride to the Statue of Liberty                   Central Park               
Bus Tour of New York City                 Radio City Music Hall                                     Times Square
Empire State Building                          42nd Street                                                       Madame Tussauds

The price is dependent upon the cost of flights, hotels, and entrance fees.   I have a cost estimate but hotel and flight fees vary by date.   I would ESTIMATE the cost to be somewhere between approximately $1675 per person quad occupancy and $1975 double occupancy based on current airline and hotel prices.  

________ YES, I AM INTERESTED!  I plan to attend the informational meeting on Wednesday, December, 6th at 6pm in the St. John Middle School Computer Lab.  Space is limited.  If you are interested in traveling please stop by to register.   Bring social security numbers for all travelers.

________ I am interested in the trip but I cannot make the meeting.
