  • Later in the day, you’ll board a picturesque sailboat for a night sail on the waters surrounding Manhattan. Here you’ll sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking views – including the Statue of Liberty and NYC skyline – all lit up and looking more beautiful than ever. 

Day 3 - Roller Coasters & Russian Culture

“The family-focused itinerary from Beyond Times Square was a game-changer. The kid-friendly activities they planned for us were spot on. My children especially loved the scavenger hunt at the American Museum of Natural History – which we loved because it was fun and educational!”

2023 - M.S.

“I’ve always been a Wall Street enthusiast, but the private tour of the Financial District that Beyond Times Square set up for me was eye-opening. There was so much happening there that I had no idea about – from the past to present day. I didn’t go in expecting to learn anything new – but boy did I!”

2023 - Z.K.

“We were in New York for our anniversary and Beyond Times Square made it our best one yet! The magical horse and carriage ride through Central Park ending with a gourmet picnic – which was a surprise for my wife – made it extra special! We already agreed we are using them for our next anniversary.”

2023 - F.S.

“I always thought the Smithsonian Museums were just like any other museums until I did a private tour of several of them that Beyond Times Square arranged. I didn’t just walk around aimlessly – I got to hear fascinating insights and little-known stories that made the experience that much more powerful!”
