Almost every weekend throughout the year there’s a range of sports games on and the atmosphere in the stadiums is always awesome! Feel like some music? There are a huge range of concerts on each week throughout New York. See the biggest stars, live on stage at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall or Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.

Seeing a Broadway Musical

Seeing a Broadway Musical is a must during your New York trip. During the weekend you can see a Matinee show on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and also evening performances on both days too. Go to see a classic show that has been running for years or see one of the exciting new musicals and enjoy the modern storylines and impressive sets. If you feel like going out on the town during the evenings and are looking for the best of New York’s nightlife, the Nightclub Experience on a Saturday is something for you. Alternatively make it an early night and head back to your hotel so you can be up bright early on Sunday in order to board the bus for a gospel tour through Harlem!
