What to do this March in New York City - March 2014
Spring is in the air! Well, technically it’s still winter, but we’ll celebrate any increase in temperature that makes the NYC outdoors more bearable. So if you’re heading to the Big Apple this March, that’s great news! There is so much more to do indoors and outdoors than in the previous chilly months, as there are less crowds and hotel rates are lower. Here are a few awesome things to do this March in New York City that will make for unforgettable memories.
1 - Explore Broadway!
New York City is known around the world for producing some of the best theatrical productions, and for very good reason. There are many shows to choose from both on and off Broadway, but to truly understand the rich theatre history of New York City, we recommend taking a Broadway Tour!
New York Broadway Tours is our favorite option, as your tour guide walks you past legendary theatres as you learn about the rich history of them all, and you also get to perform Broadway show tunes with your tour guide in the middle of the tour! We believe the best tour offered here is the “GLEEK” Broadway Glee Fan Walking Tour, not just because we’re Gleeks (we totally are), but because it’s highly engaging and interactive. Plus, your whole tour gets to stop at the famous red stairs in Times Square and you all get to sing Empire State of Mind! But if Glee isn’t really your thing, check out their Broadway Walking Tours in Times Square (there are a couple options), a fun Greenwich Village Piano Pub Crawl, and a spooky Haunted Broadway Tour. We are getting excited for you just writing about this! Check out their website: www.newyorkbroadwaytours.com

2 - Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day Right
Start your St. Patty’s Weekend in New York City on the right foot by hitting up Kegs and Eggs at SideBar. Kegs and Eggs will happen on Saturday, March 15th through Monday, March 17th from 9 AM-12 PM. Many a green breakfast food will be served, including green pancakes, green bagels, green eggs, Lucky Charms, and of course, green beer. We recommend picking up a 3 Day All Access ticket to prepare for the St. Patty’s shenanigans you’re bound to get into on Saturday, prepare/recover on Sunday, and completely recover on Monday (best game plan ever!). Pick up your tickets (use discount code NYCTOURIST50 for 50% off!) and get more information here: http://www.iadventure.com/event/detail/530535397176a/kegs-eggs-green-breakfast-pre-game
Keep in mind that this event is only for those 21+, but don’t worry if you don’t meet the age requirement. If you’re under 21, you can still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by attending one of the biggest parades in the world, NYC’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
3 - Get Brewed in Brooklyn
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in New York City all month by doing Urban Oyster’s Brewed in Brooklyn Tour. Learn about the operations of how today’s breweries in Brooklyn are operated as well as the pre-prohibition era. There are two breweries still left in Brooklyn from the 19th century that you also get to visit! If you aren’t sold already, here are four words for you: pizza and lager beer. Of course, you must be 21 and older to participate in this tour.
Younger travelers are not out of luck, though. What could possibly be better than a brewery tour with samples, you ask? A food tour! Sample a variety of delicious authentic Italian, Middle Eastern, and New American food at their Neighborhood Eats Tour: Brownstone Brooklyn.
