There are an almost unlimited number of things to see and do in NYC—many of which are detailed in the pages accessed from the menu in the blue column on the right. But a day trip/coach tour may be just the ticket for a bit of relaxation and an opportunity to explore nearby cities and attractions.

Washington DC, Boston, and Philadelphia are all close enough for a day trip from NYC with enough time for sightseeing and shopping. Amish Country, the Hamptons and Sag Harbor provide variety and are close enough to explore on a day trip. Niagara Falls is a day trip by air or 2 by bus.

Typically your transportation will be via either a deluxe climate controlled motor coach or van so that you can sit back and relax—even take a nap on the way back—as the driver deals with traffic as you enjoy the scenery and learn about each state you're passing through.
