If you’re looking for a new way to get in shape for the summer, you can head down to New York City’s Times Square during their amazing Summer Solstice event, beginning on June 21 and highlighting the lengthiest day of summer. Beyond the celebrations, you’ll also have a chance to participate in the massive yoga training exercises taking place right on the streets of Times Square, where thousands of yoga mats and visitors will be stretching and following the directions of some of the most renowned trainers in the fitness world, namely Patrick Lynch, Nicole Nichols and Douglass Stewart. Best of all, admission is free! Be sure to make reservations near this fun event by booking New York City lodging.
After you’ve shed a few extra pounds, you can celebrate your fitness level by heading out on the exhilarating 30 minute Speedboat Ride, “The Beast.” Zoom through the New York City harbor at speeds up to 45 miles an hour and look for the famous Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on your way. You’ll be provided a full narration by your hilarious captain, “Mad Dog.” Other boats are sure to stay out of the way of this mean craft painted with green eyes and razor sharp teeth!
For an additional exciting time out on the water, make reservations on the 90 minute Manhattan Twilight Cruise, heading out in the beauty of the sunset and summer night. You’ll be able to view the city skyline as it lights up in all directions. Your ship will gently float past several highlights that the city is known for, including the South Street Seaport, Ellis Island, Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building.
