Sightseeing in New York City Despite the Weather

Going to New York City anytime is exciting. Just ask one of the 61.5 million tourists that visit every year. My husband had never been to New York City before so he wanted to see as much of the city as possible in the short time we had there. The wind was brisk, making it miserable some of the days to walk through the city for long. There was so much to see, so little time, and it was cold. My husband is a good guy and all but being the true southerner he is, he and the chilly weather were not a good combination. The odds were working against us a little. So, how did we still see the city and stay warm? By riding, THE RIDE

What is The Ride?

The Ride is an entertainment experience you will never forget. Seeing Midtown Manhattan and Times Square in New York is just part of the fun.

A Great Way of Seeing New York City

From the time you step foot on the patented multi-million dollar motor coaches, you will notice the stadium style seating. The seating faces sideways and floor to ceiling windows giving everyone the best view possible from the streets of NYC. No other car or bus can offer this kind of view! A great view makes The Ride stand apart from any other NYC street experience but the entertainment combined with the view makes it worth every dime! In addition to seeing many of the famous New York Landmarks, the information given about each site makes for an educational trip as well. Even with these historic facts of some of these great landmarks, the presentation will leave you laughing for sure!

So Much Laughter

After you climb aboard The Ride, you will meet your hosts for the night. They aren’t your ordinary “tour guides”. They are full of information but full of even more jokes and hilarious comments! They are trained in improvisation and did a great job at it! I can’t tell you how many times they included the riders and even made comments about people on the streets that had us laughing hysterically.
