Luxury and the City: How to Have an Iconic NYC Vacation

New York City is the ultimate vacation spot to indulge and splurge. Experience the best the city has to offer, from things to do, places to eat and drink and luxury hotel accommodations to stay. Check out this ultimate guide to the Big Apple, and enjoy the city like the rich and the famous:

Things to Do

  • Take a helicopter ride for an aerial view of the city: Chuck the tour bus, and view New York City in all its glory by hopping on a helicopter. Spot the Freedom Tower, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty while you sip on champagne and eat chocolate delights. And the best part is that it’s completely private and customizable with your own private helicopter guide.
  • Have a VIP experience on Broadway: A visit to the Big Apple isn’t complete, without taking in a show on Broadway. Get tickets to Les Miserables from Telecharge in advance, and arrange for premium orchestra seating, three-course dinner from E & E Grill House and concierge service to deliver drinks to your seats during intermission. If you want to go big, arrange for a meet-and-greet backstage with the performers.
  • Charter a yacht: Want to experience the Manhattan skyline with style and opulence? Charter a yacht for a four-hour cruise, and indulge in a dining extravaganza while breathing in the ocean air, drinking in wine and admiring the glorious view.

Places to Eat and Drink

  • Taste a $1,000 pizza or martini: Nino’s Bellissima Pizzeria offers one of the most expensive pizzas in the world. Topped with $820 worth of caviar, this is as decadent pizza feast. Besides the rich food, you may run into Regis Philbin or Chelsea Clinton, who are patrons of this restaurant. If a martini is more your style, try the Diamond Is Forever martini at Manhattan’s Uncorked. This drink includes a consultation with a Swiss jeweler to determine which diamond is dropped into your martini. How is that for the ultimate experience? Just be sure to make reservations 72 hours ahead of time.
  • Take fine dining to the next level: If you’re looking for a unique dining experience, stop your search at one of the most expensive food indulgences at Masa. This restaurant lets its food shine with simple and sparse decor. However, the sushi counter is meticulously maintained to provide a visual and sensual satisfaction, and the food is fresh and served immediately to “preserve the idea that each dish is still in a living, being state,” according to its website.

Where to Stay

  • Live like a king at the St. Regis Penthouse Suite: Priced at $35,000 a night, the St. Regis Penthouse suite is one of the most expensive places to stay in New York City. With a marble foyer, library, three bedrooms and four bathrooms, there is no lack of space to enjoy your accommodations.
  • Experience it all at the Ritz-Carlton: If you want access to 5th Avenue, the Modern Museum of Art and Central Park, it is all yours at the Ritz Carlton. This way you can be in the middle of the posh part of the city without it being too far from your hotel room.
  • Relax at the Four Seasons: If you want to be treated like a star, this hotel is known for its courteous staff, luxury spa, and full fitness amenities. All accommodations provide spacious rooms and large marble bathrooms. It is fun to live like the famous, without any of the hassle.
