Seniors Pay A Memorable Visit To The Big Apple

imagesYes, most everyone knows what the “Big Apple” is, it’s NYC. Been there yet, seniors? New York, often called New York City or the City of New York to distinguish it from the State of New York, is the most populous city in the United States (8.4 million) and the center of many world class businesses.

It is one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world and welcomes over 50 million visitors a year. New York exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance (Wall Street), media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment (Broadway). And yes, I discovered that NYC has its own Official Website Homepage with lots of helpful information for senior visitors.


There is so much to see, so many places to visit, and so many things to do. Visiting New York City attractions can be pricey, but not for New York Pass holders. No need to skip some Attractions because of the costs, with the New York Pass you can visit them all (Google it).

Senior Visitors Like The ‘Smart Card’

Senior travelers need to know that The New York Pass is a ‘smart card’ – like a credit card with a computer chip inside – which allows you completely cash free entry to over 80 New York tourist attractions.

I recommend a Gray Line Double Decker Tour of NYC. Buy this ticket for 48 hours of Hop-On, Hop-Off double-decker fun that includes the Downtown Loop, Uptown Loop, Brooklyn Loop, Bronx Loop and Night/Holiday Lights Tour. I liked very much what TripAdvisor had to say on NYC: “conquering New York in one visit is impossible”.


They advise that you concentrate on the “must sees” like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Museum of Modern Art and then head off the beaten path to maybe the Cloisters or a famed library.

Expedia has a  Vacation Travel Guide Video on NYC that will provide a nice overview prior to your visit.

 Senior Discounts In New York City

When as asked for “facts of NYC” I discovered 20,300,000 results.  Good luck. Now start choosing from among those that make good sense to you as a senior visitors. nota bene:As people get older, sometimes it seems as though opportunities for entertainment, enrichment, and all around fun disappear. But in New York City, opportunities for senior citizens abound.

MuseoartemetSenior citizens get special discounts almost everywhere in New York City, and there are deals to be had for tours, performances and tourist venues that are available to the savvy of any age.

Many NYC attractions, museums, and events even make a point of offering special discounts for seniors in order to encourage them to buy tickets.

Enjoy your visit to the “Big Apple”. Take a bunch of good bites and fill your memory book and memory chips with some great experiences. -jeb
