After leaving the hotel, we made our way to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Although, we made a few pit stops to see some things around the city, like a bull that supposedly gives you financial good luck if you rub it.
While going through New York, we also stopped to see the 9/11 memorial, the Brooklyn Bridge, China Town, and Little Italy.
After traveling through New York all morning, we were able to go to the afternoon activities we had picked for ourselves. Some of the activities included a tour of the 9/11 museum, a visit to Madison Square Garden, a tour of NBC studios, and a tour of the MET.
The evening events we picked for ourselves included the New York Yankees vs. the Royals game, a tour of the 9/11 museum, and a bus tour of the city.
Around 9:30, the groups met up to go to the top of the Empire State Building. Afterward, we got the choice of going to see Grand Central Station or going to Times Square.
We were busy, busy bees around New York, but it is time to travel to new places. Next stop, Pennsylvania.
