There are certain things you must do while in New York. You have to go to the top of the Empire State Building, visit Lady Liberty on Ellis Island, and you absolutely must explore The Met. Aside from these essential New York moments, however, there’s a wide array of unique options that will make your experience in the Big Apple far more memorable.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, Lyndhurst NJ

From your ringside seat inside Lyndhurst Castle, you’ll be taken back in time to an era of bravery, honor and nobility. Meet the characters, who range in rank from nobles & knights to lowly squires, each of which has their own fascinating part in the dramatic tale. The show also includes a tasty meal of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, oven-roasted chicken, spare ribs, herb-basted potatoes, a pastry and a beverage.

Close to New York City, the moment you enter the stone façade of Lydhurst Castle you’re transported from the noise and bustle of the city and into the adventure of 11th century Spain. You’ll witness jousting matches, displays of courage and medieval weaponry in action.

New York City Helicopter Tours
