Tour the Big Apple This Weekend!

There’s no shortage of things to see in New York City – historic landmarks, great restaurants, rockin’ night-life and interesting neighborhoods. There’s also no shortage of informative tours that feature local experts who can share interesting anecdotes and historical facts. A good chunk of these tours use Brown Paper Tickets for their ticketing and today I wanted to highlight some of the great tours going on in New York this weekend. If you’re visiting the city, these tours can be a great way to learn the history of a given neighborhood or taste some of the amazing food that New York has to offer or event hunt ghosts in Grand Central Terminal.

If you’re a New Yorker, these tours can be a great way to learn something about your city that you may not have known before. Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in your own city and when you live in a city as vibrant and interesting as New York, there can be a lot to learn, even for a long-time resident.

Here’s our recommendations for tours going on in New York this weekend.

Greenwich Village Food Tour – See and taste real New York with local foods and sightseeing all-in-1 walking food tours. Attendees will have a full-lunch from 5 of the best shops and restaurants in this very popular neighborhood. Lunch starts with cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery made famous from Sex and the City, next is a freshly-made bagel with cream cheese, followed by an Indian vegetable roll. Then, have the best thin-crust pizza with fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce from Joe’s Pizzeria and Rocco’s cannoli for dessert. Read the rest of this entry »
