NYCVP announces special 4th of July Barbecue Over Broadway vacation packages.

Spring is in the air in New York City, which means it’s time to start thinking about warmer weather plans. New York City Vacation Packages (NYCVP) has several different options available for 4th of July vacations, including premium and value packages, to enjoy America’s birthday with Lady Liberty in New York City.

A complete 4th of July Barbecue Over Broadway vacation includes:

  •     Accommodations for two nights or longer
  •     All state and local taxes
  •     Barbecue Over Broadway afternoon picnic
  •     Sightseeing tour of historic Manhattan
  •     Statue Cruises or World Yacht cruise (tax and gratuity included)
  •     Transportation from pier to a convenient location at the conclusion of the cruise

The Independence Day festivities start with a Barbecue Over Broadway on the outdoor terrace of the Novotel Hotel’s restaurant, Supernova. Classic picnic and barbecue foods will be served with sensational views of Broadway and Times Square below. After the BBQ ends at 3:30 p.m., there will be a motorcoach tour of historic Manhattan ending at the pier on the Hudson River to start the scenic cruise portion of the evening.

The value vacation package option includes an on-board DJ, sandwiches, salads, and a cash bar on Statue Cruises’ Miss New York. The premium vacation package option includes a private buffet dinner along with an open bar on the World Yacht’s Duchess. Both ships venture down river to the tip of Lower Manhattan, offering views of the New York Skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty. After the cruise, both ships will drop anchor to view the spectacular Macy’s Fireworks display. The evening ends around 11 p.m., and motorcoach transportation back to Midtown Manhattan is provided.
