Exploring the Big Apple with The Ride NYC
I’ve been to the Big Apple before but this time it felt like a new experience. For one, I wasn’t a million years pregnant. Let’s just say I saw WAY more than I did in 2012 even though our schedule was beyond jam packed.
I had tickets to 4 different events, two of which were overlapping conferences. Normally I wouldn’t have had time to explore at all but knowing this would be an issue I came prepared: I purchased a VIP ticket to #BBNYC which included a choice of several experiences on the Wednesday afternoon, something I looked forward to with fervor.
I’m a big fan of tours but The Ride NYC is like nothing you’ve seen before. Stadium-style seating, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an unparalleled view of the city. With lights and sounds reminiscent of old Cash Cab episodes and seasoned entertainers you are guaranteed some laughs, lots of oohs and aahhhs, and some fun surprises thrown in the mix.
In the air conditioned greatness of the bus I got to take in some great sights.
I also got to take great pictures of a few landmarks from interesting angles.
Beyond our two great hosts we were treated to little extras along the way. The first surprise was a dancing banker – vaudeville-style.
We were serenaded, attended a jazz concert, and went to the ballet – all without leaving the bus. We even got to see some spectacular break dancing.Experience NYC with @the_ride_nyc for some great fun and a memorable experience! #Travel #bbnyc Click To Tweet
We may have all broken into song and our lovely host – who reminds me so much of Anne Hathaway – gave us a stunning rendition of ‘All by myself’.
Some people think tours are tacky and for old people but I guarantee this one is unlike any other you’ve ever seen. The Ride NYC has several routes you can choose from and they are worth every penny.
Enjoy your stay in the Big Apple, and get on The Ride! You won’t regret it 😉
