Many refer to NYC as the city that never sleeps. You have the option of going on a New York tour bus across the city at night as well as during the day. While the attractions to see, things to do, and places to go in NYC change a little during an NYC night tour, the city offers just as many options and opportunities while it is dark outside
. The real question is – what would you like to do first?
Most won’t find this option so surprising, as you can’t really complete an NYC bus tour until you watch a New York Broadway show. Unfortunately, a Broadway show often doesn’t make the list of places to go in NYC at night because people assume the prices are too expensive. Fortunately, that is rarely the case. Between websites like Groupon and discounts offered through NYC tour bus companies as part of a tour package, you can enjoy a show without blowing your entire budget.
Moreover, you can see a “Broadway show” without seeing a real Broadway show. Referred to as off-Broadway or off-off-Broadway, these shows are also Broadway-style theater performances. They are just significantly cheaper. For someone who wants to enjoy a theater performance in NYC, this is a great option to consider.
Look at NYC From Up High
Your NYC night tour must include viewing the city of New York from a higher vantage point. Did you know the Empire State Building
is open until 2 a.m. and the Top of the Rock is open until midnight? There are tons of places for you to go to look at the city from up in the sky. You cannot truly appreciate the beauty of the city until you do so. As you try to decide where to go to see the city from a higher vantage point, put the Brooklyn Bridge on your list. Most locals agree one of the best – and free – spots to see the gorgeous city lights at night is this bridge.
Comedy or Improv Show
The comedy club scene is one of the biggest income earners in New York City nightlife. Unfortunately, you need to bring a little extra money, as the entry fee for comedy clubs can be pretty hefty. Furthermore, most comedy clubs have drink minimums that can really add up.
If you are unable to foot the bill at a comedy club, an improvisational theater is a happy alternative. This type of theater is just as funny as a comedy club at a fraction of the cost. More importantly, a lot of famous and well-known comedians started out doing improv shows.
Because NYC is a city that never sleeps
, a lot of business establishments and places to eat are open late. Some are even open 24 hours. So, you should have no trouble enjoying an NYC bus tour at night.
