Last week, we (Darcie, Marissa, Marcus and I) were in New York City. Here are the highlights from our first visit to NYC and Broadway.
We loved Central Park!
A favorite spot in Central Park was Shakespeare Garden, which features flowers spoken of in Shakespeare plays and poems.
Another favorite was the bronze Alice in Wonderland statue. If you’re visiting Central Park, I recommend using the Official Central Park app, which includes celebrity commentary for some of Central Park’s features.
We visited Time Square, took a bus tour around The Empire State Building, enjoyed a cruise around The Statue of Liberty, and the kids learned part of a Cinderella number from an actual Broadway actor. We also visited The Museum of Natural History and Marissa visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
But the best part of our trip was seeing five Broadway Shows. We saw Matilda, Finding Neverland (with Kelsey Grammer), Aladdin, Phantom of the Opera, and On the Twentieth Century (starring Kristin Chenoweth and Peter Gallagher). Our top two favorites were Matilda and Finding Neverland.
All in all, it was a very memorable trip.
