To help you make the most of your weekend getaway, we’re breaking down the best things to do in and around New York City.

Where to Eat, Sleep, and Play in New York

Rudy’s convenient and reliable luxury car services can take you anywhere you want to go in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island.


New York City provides endless shopping choices. From high-end designer stores to unique thrift shops and vintage marketplaces, the city is full of opportunities to find your new favorite piece. For a one-stop destination, check out Macy’s famous 34th Street store, the sponsor of NYC’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Or, if you’d like to peruse a variety of independent boutiques, venture down to SoHo.


No NYC trip is complete without a tour of Times Square, where you’ll see thousands of people amidst flashing lights and massive storefronts. For a quieter destination, take a stroll down the High Line, an old railway track turned elevated park.

Entertainment & Activities

Whether you’re an art enthusiast, theater aficionado, or history buff, New York City has something for you. Visit Broadway and choose from 41 different theaters, each running its own award-winning show. The Book of Mormon, Dear Evan Hansen, and Hamilton are just a few productions you won’t want to miss in 2019.

New York City also boasts hundreds of unique museums, from the world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art to the American Museum of Natural History. Interested in film, television, and digital media? Visit the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. Want to learn more about New York City’s past, present, and future? Wander through the Museum of the City of New York in East Harlem.

Dinner & Drinks

Grab a bite of pizza at the iconic New York pizzeria, John’s of Bleeker Street. Feeling choosy? Pay a visit to one of New York’s many food halls, where you can find a wide variety of cuisines and vendors all in one place. Or, for a more upscale setting, make a reservation at Le Bernardin, a Midtown gem boasting three Michelin stars.

Looking for something more unique? Reserve a spot at Blanca, where you can enjoy an intimate 19-course tasting. And when it comes time for after-dinner drinks, head to the Raines Law Room, a speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar that features candlelit tables, intimate booths, and a menu of expertly-crafted drinks.


From the Plaza to the Roosevelt, New York City is home to a handful of iconic hotels. But with so many options, it can be difficult to make a decision. Our recommendation? Opt for luxury accommodations in quieter parts of the city, such as the Mark hotel on the Upper East Side.

If you prefer to remain in the middle of the hustle and bustle, reserve a room at the Andaz 5th Avenue hotel in Midtown. Here, you can enjoy loft-style guest rooms, private outdoor spaces, and easy access to world-class shopping.
