    So far i’ve only booked the tour part, but im planning on getting to New York 30th September to have 4 nights there. I hope to spend the first 3 nights in a hotel in central Manhatten thats close to everything and then the 4th night i’ll stay in the Courtyard hotel where the tour starts the nex day.

    How many nights are you having in New York and have you booked anywhere?

    Also, are you having any post tour nights in LA?

    What is everyone wanting to see while we’re in New York? Does anybody know if we would be seeing the Statue of Liberty with the tour group or would it be a good idea to do that before the trip?

  • 28 Jan 2013 kristyk said

    i think we do a little drive around new york but i think we head pretty straight for boston so id see anything you want to in ny before tour.
