"March is an amazing time to visit New York City! With all of the iconic attractions, Broadway shows, and different events going on every week, tourists and locals alike will have no trouble finding something fun to do in NYC," said Jamie Carr, editor of NYCTourist.com. Jamie continued, "After travelers try their first slice of New York pizza at Lombardi's in Lower Manhattan, and stop at popular landmark attractions such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park and The Top of the Rock, we recommend trying these 3 activities for a diverse and memorable New York City experience!"
Here is NYCTourist.com's list of the top 3 fun, can't miss things to do in New York City this March:
1 - Kegs and Eggs
St. Patrick's Day is a huge holiday that thousands of people, both Irish and non-Irish, celebrate in New York City every year. Plan your weekend by purchasing tickets for Kegs and Eggs, happening Saturday, March 15 - Monday, March 17 from 9 A.M. - 12 P.M. at SideBar, where guests 21+ can enjoy a wide array of green-colored foods such as green eggs, green bagels, and of course, green beer. The 3 Day All Access pass is a great value, and with discount code NYCTOURIST50, guests can receive 50% off! Purchase tickets here: http://www.iadventure.com/event/detail/530535397176a/kegs-eggs-green-breakfast-pre-game
Travelers under 21 years old are not out of luck though, as they can still witness the oldest and largest parade in the world! The St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City will be marching through Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street in all of its bagpiping Irish glory! Check here for more information.
2 - See Aladdin on Broadway
Seeing a Broadway show is an absolute must for anyone visiting New York City, regardless of the time of year. Opening March 20, 2014 at the New Amsterdam Theatre, on Broadway and 42nd Street, is Disney's Aladdin! Guests can discover a whole new world and be among the first to witness the brand-new show directed by Tony Award winning director Casey Nicholaw, complete with a beautiful princess, magic lamp, comical Genie, brand new music, and of course the iconic songs everyone knows and loves. Whether travelers missed the show or want to come back to see it again, tickets are on sale until August 31, 2014. If guests can't see Aladdin, try checking out other Disney shows such as awe-inspiring The Lion King or the feel-good, upbeat Newsies!
3 - Tour the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Among New York City's many tours, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Past, Present, & Future Tour led by Turnstile Tours is not to be missed. Located along Brooklyn's working waterfront with unforgettable views of the Manhattan skyline, this tour offers travelers a unique exploration of a historic naval shipyard that today is a hub for some of the nation's most cutting edge companies and eco-friendly manufacturers. This behind-the-scenes experience of New York City makes this tour one of our favorites this year, but what may have travelers sold is knowing that their ticket price is for a good cause. Turnstile Tours offers these tours in partnership with the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, a visitor center complete with exhibitions, programs, and a café, as well as a job training and placement center that connects locals with employment opportunities. If travelers desire to get a different perspective, Turnstile Tours offers six different theme-based tours of the Yard, from a unique photography tour to World War II history. Check for tour options here: www.turnstiletours.com

After a long day of sightseeing, shows, and adventure, travelers will need a hotel to stay in. A great option is the Hotel Wolcott in centrally located Chelsea, where guests can get a great rate without sacrificing luxury! Check for specials. For other great hotel options, check out NYCTourist.com.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
