A friend and I will take a trip to NYC this July and would like to solicit some help with our schedule/plans. My wife and his fiance decided not to join us, so we are going to go non-stop... That may be the reason they decided not to join us, but that is not pertinent here :)
Anyway, we will fly in from Houston, TX on Wed. 7/4 and fly back on Sun 7/8. We would really appreciate any input regarding our intentions and if anything seems overly ambitious.
3:30 PM Flight arrives at LGA
4:30 PM arrive at Marriott Marques in Time Square
5:00 - 7:00 walk around Time Square
7:30-10:30 travel down to battery park for the fireworks
11:00-12:00 Empire State Building
1:30-6:00 PM World Trade Center and walking around financial district
10:00 - 12:00 Time Square (again)
2:00-4:00 United Nations (tour)
5:00-11:00 PM Yankees Stadium and Yankees game
No Schedule - Little Italy
1:00 PM travel to LGA for flight to Houston
We have the first few days pretty packed and we left the last 1.5 days open to relax and to see other things that we may have missed. In terms of the pace, we are 2 men in our mid 20's in relatively good physical shape. We are coming from a crazy hot and humid environment. The main question I have is: Is this schedule doable or is it too ambitious?
I would also appreciate any insight into the order we are doing things, the grouping of activities, or anything of that nature.
Everyone on Trip advisor was so helpful for my wife and my trip to London and Rome earlier this year. I hope we can continue that streak with more help for this trip. Thank you in advance for your help.
