Experience the City That Shapes the World, in the Height of the Holiday Season—a Spectacular Sight Indeed

Come with us to explore the sights, sounds, and flavors of the greatest city in the world, NYC. We'll be staying in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan, just steps away from Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, Chelsea Market, and a seemingly endless offering of museums, galleries, nightclubs, and eateries. This neighborhood is also near the Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and many more of the iconic landmarks that make Manhattan a place like no other. NYC has so much to offer; there's no way you can fit it all into one week-or one lifetime-but you can sure try! And what could be better than visiting this fabulous city at the most wonderful time of the year? We'll be staying at the Kimpton Hotel Eventi, right at the epicenter of the city that shapes the world, in the height of the holiday season-a spectacular sight indeed.

When the planes hit the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, the world watched as the most recognizable symbols of power and freedom in the Western hemisphere fell. From the clear blue morning sky to the smell of fire and the sound of sirens, New Yorkers witnessed firsthand the events of that day. Even now, they can recall the moments of tragedy and the acts of heroism that tested, and ultimately strengthened, the city. The new World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial are living tributes that honor the lives lost and celebrate New York City’s resilience.

WICKED at the Gershwin Theater

Thursday, December 20, 2018

7:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. | $155.00

 So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” Hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade”, Wicked is a must-see Broadway production. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story.

Price includes tickets to the performance. Transportation to the theater is not included.
