Today was full of a ton of activities, in what seemed like no time at all.
We woke up and headed right into Lower Manhattan to welcome the day from Liberty Island. We crossed the New York Harbor via ferry boat and saw Lady Liberty’s beautiful face. After learning some history of the statue and exploring the small island, we took the Met back to Times Square.
We broke off and got some free time to roam the Square. Some hit stores including the three level Forever21, five level Toys R Us, and the M&M Store. To add to the shopping downtown, we ventured to China Town and Little Italy. We used our bartering skills and got some awesome deals.
Then we visited the 9/11 Memorial, commemorating the victims from the September 11 attack.
We pulled a hectic 15 minute change in the hotel, and went out to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. At the Hard Rock we, including the adults, serenaded the whole restaurant with Don’t Stop Believing.
To wrap up a packed day, we saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. It was an awesome show with tons of talented performers, and I think we all appreciated three hours to just sit and enjoy.
Once again, our amazing bus driver John came to our rescue by picking us up right outside The Majestic Theater so we didn’t have to take the Met back to the hotel.
