The RIDE in Masquerade

What better way to celebrate the Halloween season than with a gorgeous historical costume?
Maravíllate con el legado de la mascarada europea del viejo mundo mientras los guías de esta excursión sin igual te invitan a una versión especial de temporada de su famoso RIDE. En serio, sentirás que estás asistiendo a un baile histórico con María Antonieta.
Por supuesto, no es todo glamour y ostentación: también te tratarán con historias de terror, videos atractivos y la presencia tangible de los espíritus de Nueva York en el pasado. ¡Es en definitiva una diversión súper estacional!
A su llegada: The RIDE in Masquerade tickets are available with the New York City Explorer Pass®.
Amazing City Views of Fall Foliage
Admire a vista de pájaro el hermoso follaje de otoño en Central Park, así como las bulliciosas calles de la ciudad de Nueva York, desde su posición privilegiada en lo alto de uno de los mejores miradores de la ciudad.
Las dos cubiertas de observación icónicas de la ciudad brindan una buena oportunidad para que disfrutes de tu perspectiva única del paisaje cambiante que se muestra a continuación y también para tomar algunas fotografías geniales.
The Empire State Building is a classic, while the Top of the Rock provides more unobstructed views. Can’t go wrong with either!
Estatua de la Libertad
Fall is time for remembering our history, and there are few places so historical as New York City.
Take a ferry out to our Lady Liberty, then tour the Ellis Island Museum as you learn all about the history of early immigration in America.
Crowds will be thinner this time of year, too, and it may be easier to get additional tickets to the pedestal or crown (as long as you don’t plan your vacation for a holiday weekend).
A su llegada: Statue of Liberty ferry tickets are available with the New York City Explorer Pass®. Crown and pedestal admission is separately ticketed and is not included with the pass.
There are few places as culturally diverse and as artistically accomplished as NYC. So it’s no surprise that it’s home to some of the world’s most prestigious and fascinating museums.
Two of our favorites are the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, which each offer amazing and inspiring works of art from all around the world for your enjoyment.
If you’re headed to the Met, be sure to check out their exciting new exhibit (which we all previewed at this year’s Met Gala), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” This special exhibit of apparel and accessories will be on display through October 8, 2018.
Additional fall special exhibits at the Met include topics like African American photography, Japanese painting, twentieth-century furniture, African sculpture, and more.
Sal a dar un paseo en bicicleta
Fall in New York es la mezcla perfecta de fresco y crujiente, no demasiado fría para estar adentro, pero lo suficientemente agradable como para que no estés sudando tanto en un paseo en bicicleta.
Didn’t bring a bike with you? Just rent one in Central Park and enjoy pedaling along their many scenic bike trails.
You’ll get to enjoy the many sights and sounds of Central Park, including Belvedere Castle, the Shakespeare Garden, Central Park Zoo, and so much more.
If you prefer a little bit of guidance to maximize your Central Park explorations, you can take a bike tour of the area, too!
Grab a scarf and light jacket and head out to the water to enjoy an informative and relaxing sightseeing cruise.
New York is particularly suited for water tours, as you can see nearly all of the major landmarks like the Empire State Building, Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty, and the Freedom Tower without venturing on dry land.
Getting In: Many cruise options, like the popular Circle Line NYC Landmark Cruise, are available with the New York City Explorer Pass®.
Sporting Events & Arena Tours
What better way to celebrate fall with sports fans than with a visit to their favorite ballpark or arena? The Yankees have some really amazing talent and their post-season chances are looking good.
And while baseball is winding to a close in the fall, basketball is just getting started and the Knicks are ready to go with some new talent on board this season. And don’t forget about the Rangers, either!
If you can’t make it to a game, consider taking a tour of local venues, like Yankee Stadium or Madison Square Garden.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i
New York Botanical Garden
now through October 28, 2018
This special exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden is a must-see for art and plant lovers. Come to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s iconic paintings of Hawaii — now together in NYC for the first time since 1940.
These lush, evocative paintings are paired with the exotic Hawaiian plants that inspired them, creating a truly inspiring combination of art and science that we know you’ll just adore.
This exhibition is included with general admission.
A su llegada: New York Botanical Garden tickets are available with the New York City Explorer Pass®.

Some of our favorites include Beer at the Pier (at Watermark bar) and Oktoberfest Night at Citi Field (a good family event).

Columbus Day Parade
October 8, 2018
Marvel at tens of thousands of marchers who gather together to commemorate Columbus’s landing in the Americas. It’s also a celebration of Italian heritage, which you know NYC is pretty good at.
This parade has a smaller scale than something like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, so it’s a good opportunity to enjoy festive NYC without the crazy crowds.
Entrando: La entrada al Desfile del Día de Colón es gratuita.
