On New York’s Fifth Avenue, you can have Breakfast at Tiffany’s, lunch at Bergdorf Goodman’s (literally!) and maybe a pretzel later from a cart near Central Park.
And you won’t need a driver to chauffeur you from Tiffany’s to Prada, Versace, and Fendi. All of the biggest names in fashion are located within blocks of each other. Got a man or kids in tow? Send them to Niketown, the NBA Store, FAO Schwarz or the Disney Store while you shop. The Sony Wonder Technology Lab is also just one block over on Madison. This state-of-the-art technology lab offers amazing hands-on interaction with the latest technology in robotics, animation, and high-definition video games. (It’s a local favorite — and it’s free!)
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but you can’t eat them, and after buying some new heels, you might need to cool yours at one of the many sites located along the city’s blingiest shopping district. Grab a coffee at Dean & Deluca and hit Rockefeller Plaza for a live taping of the Today Show on its street-level studio. Maybe you’ll get the chance to high-five Al Roker (and say hi to Cathy in Sioux Falls!)
Afterward, take an art tour of the stunning Rockefeller Center, an NBC Studios tour, or head all the way to the Top of the Rock for amazing views of Midtown Manhattan and Central Park. In the winter, enjoy skating on the outdoor ice surface, or relax with a cocktail at the Rink Bar in the summer months.
Radio City Music Hall, home to the Rockettes and the world-famous Christmas Spectacular, is also across the street. Book a back stage tour or stick around for Cirque du Soleil’s new Zarkana show, an amazing rock opera that blends circus acts with surreal spectacle.
A few blocks up Fifth Avenue, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) features the world’s greatest collection of modern art and amazing gifts at the MoMA Design Store. MoMA is also home to three restaurants, from fine dining to family friendly fare, so you can refuel for more shopping.
Or you could avert your eyes, keep your wallet in your pocket and head up Fifth Avenue along Central Park to Museum Mile, home to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, plus the Guggenheim Museum, the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.
Of course, if your boots weren’t actually made for walking, you can see all these sites from the Citysights NY Uptown Loop Tour, which runs up Fifth Avenue, then along Museum Mile and through Central Park to the Upper West Side).
