Dan O'Donnell's Family Adventure - New York City

“I’m so excited to announce my brand new vacation series, The Dan O’Donnell Family Adventure! As a family man myself, I wanted to create a multi-generational family experience that the whole family can enjoy together. And I’m even more excited to announce that I’m working with Cruise & Tour, the same great team that has brought over 25 years of travel memories to WISN listeners.

For my inaugural Dan O’Donnell Family Adventure, what better place is there to kick something off than The Capital of the World? That’s right… The Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps, New York City! It’s a place with something for the whole family and we’ll be experiencing much of what the city has to offer.

Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Grand Central Station, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty–all of it! And there will be plenty of free family time to squeeze in even more sights, from our centrally-located hotel.

If you’ve never been to New York City, this is the way to do it! Here are the highlights:
– Tour historic Ellis Island and climb the Statue of Liberty
– Discover Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral on a walking tour
– Eat your way through the iconic Grand Central Station on a food tour
– Walk through Wall Street, the financial capital of America
– Take a guided stroll through the magnificent Central Park, complete with a picnic
– Visit the famous American Museum of Natural History, where nature comes to life
– See “The Lion King” on Broadway, its third-longest running show
– Enjoy an Italian feast at the famous Carmine’s in Times Square

Hope to see you in New York!”

Thursday, August 9, 2018

From our centrally-located hotel just north of Times Square and Rockefeller Center and steps from beautiful Central Park, we’ll head out on a walking tour through Rockefeller Center (see the “Today Show” plaza and skating rink) and by St. Patrick’s Cathedral, ending at Grand Central Station.

After breakfast you’ll commute like a real New Yorker when we ride the subway downtown. We’ll hop off at the financial mecca of Wall Street to see the New York Stock Exchange and famous bull before continuing on to Battery Park, where we board the ferry for Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Your guide will share stories of the millions of immigrants who came through Ellis Island to start anew (find the names of your ancestors) while touring the grounds and the Museum. Then experience New York City’s most iconic landmark first hand when we go inside the Statue of Liberty. When we arrive back onshore we’ll head to nearby Pier A for lunch (on own) on the water. After lunch, your coach will bring you back to our hotel with the balance of the day at leisure. (B)

This morning we’ll set out on a guided stroll through the magnificent wonder that is Central Park, admiring the many fountains, monuments, bridges and arches while learning the history of America’s first landscaped public park. Your morning ends with a picnic lunch in the park before heading into the American Museum of Natural History (the setting of “Night at the Museum”). You’ll forget you’re in Manhattan as you explore the incredible exhibits of our natural world. The afternoon is open for more exploration or some relaxation. (B, L)

Sunday, August 12, 2018

The morning is yours to discover The Capital of the World as you wish; the hard part will be deciding what to do. Check out the Empire State Building, hang out in Greenwich Village, or venture to another borough to see Coney Island or the Bronx Zoo. When you return, we head to Broadway for a matinee show of “The Lion King,” winner of 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical. After the show, we’ll toast to NYC over a family-style Italian feast to conclude an unforgettable evening in Times Square. (B, D)
