Friday, June 9
Rise early or sleep in, it’s your choice as you’ll have a breakfast credit to eat where you want. Then it’s on to a day of your dreams: see the city up close at street level or enjoy panoramic views from a skyscraper such as the Empire State Building. Lunch is on your own as you make memories to last a lifetime. Dinner will be early so you can make the opening act of your Broadway show.
Saturday, June 10
Another day is yours in the heart of the city. Get some shopping in, stroll through the peaceful paths of Central Park, or enjoy the hubbub and crowds of Times Square. Lunch is on your own so you can adventure anywhere, and later that evening, you’ll gather with Touchstone Essentials’ leaders for a finale night of fine dining, friendship and fellowship.
Sunday, June 11
Make your morning count with an early start to catch some more sights in the city. Get an elevated view as you walk the High Line, or experience a cup of coffee in a magical nature setting on Little Island. If your flight is later, you can store your bags and keep the adventure going. A car will await at your hotel to bring you to the airport, bringing all of weekend’s memories home.
