  • And much, much more
Your Thanksgiving Staycation Itinerary:

Wednesday
Thanksgiving Macy's BalloonWhen you think of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, the first thing you think about are the spectacular balloons. What most people don’t know is that on the Wednesday before the parade, Macy’s inflates the balloons in front of the American Museum of Natural History.
With this package, you’ll get a guided motorcoach tour of the Macy’s Parade Balloon Inflation spot (Balloon Inflation Area is a walking tour) and surrounding areas so you can see just how much helium it actually takes to make all your favorite characters fly as high as they do on parade day. Before the balloon inflation tour, we visit St. John the Divine Cathedral, the world's largest cathedral, for a guided tour of the Upper West Side and the spectacular Cathedral.

This evening we can plan an optional dinner for you at one of New York's fine restaurants, or perhaps you can take in a Broadway show. Whatever your choice, we'll make all the arrangements for you so all you have to do is enjoy!

Thursday Macy's Balloon InflationYou've seen it on TV, but it's not the same until you see it in person - it's the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! First, breakfast at Heartland Brewery  on 43rd Street, just one half block from the Parade.

Then - step outside and join in the fun as the balloons, floats and bands celebrate the holiday season! You're invited to use the facilities at Heartland Brewery during the parade - as a reprieve from inclement weather, or to get a bit to eat or drink, or to use the restrooms - a welcome relief during the 2 1/2 hour extravaganza.*
 
This afternoon you can view the City from the top of one of its two famous skyscrapers, the Empire State Building or 30 Rockefeller Center. Whichever you choose, admission tickets are included in your Thanksgiving Staycation package.
*--Although there is no view of the parade from inside Heartland Brewery, you can come and go as you please. Breakfast service begins at 8am, prior to the parade which will pass on 7th Avenue, just 1/2 block from Heartland Brewery. Food and beverages will be available until 11am.

NYC Thanksgiving DinnerThanksgiving Dinner and All the Trimmings
Thanksgiving Day at 7:30pm.

Enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet with all the trimmings at the Manhattan Club at Rosie O'Grady's, 53rd Street off 7th Avenue.
