September in New York Is Full of End of Summer Events, Concerts, and Incredible Things to Do to Wave Summer Goodbye

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/14 -- The vast amount of cultural opportunities in New York City can be astounding. Whether the focus is on food, music, performance, or just taking in the sights and sounds of the city, NYC can accommodate to every individual's preference. Today, NYCTourist.com, a travel and tourism guide to the city, announced a list of 7 activities to consider during September in New York City.

1 - Labor Day in NYC
Sidestep traffic and keep the party going between destinations with a Take Me Out nightlife city tour. Find yourself in a spacious limousine as you take in historical prohibition locations in New York City. Learn more about life in the 1920's as you visit acclaimed speakeasy bars for a touch of the devil's nectar. If more modern sensibilities suit you, tour top New York City bars on a mixology tour. Sample exotic flavors or show your sophisticated tastes while traveling in style between spots. For larger groups, consider a party bus: fully stocked for you and your friends, step on a roving nightclub as you travel through the city. Take Me Out offers all of the fun and none of the worry for a night out on the town.

2 - Top of the Rock
For those interested in seeing the sights, Top of The Rock, the observation deck at 30 Rockefeller Center, provides a unique perspective of the skyline. Featuring exhibits designed by Swarovski specifically for the location, Top of the Rock showcases the importance of the arts in the city. Learn more about the history of the Rockefeller Center on your way to the top by stopping in the theater. Recreate the iconic beam walk photo with friends or stop by the gift shop for keepsakes to remember the view at the top. Open air viewing on the 70th level connects you with the vastness that is New York City. Indoor viewing is available on lower levels, allowing the beauty of the city to be seen during any sort of weather.

3 - Food Tours
Another of the many things New York City is most famous for is the food. An astounding number of choices are available on almost every street making it difficult to sample everything offered without help. Take a food tour with Ahoy New York Tours & Tasting to experience all that is available.

Looking for the juiciest, tastiest fried dumplings or maybe the best, creamy authentic mozzarella? Want to learn more about the fascinating history of The Bloody Angle or maybe the oldest dim sum parlor in Chinatown? Join Ahoy New York Tours & Tastings and explore the food, the culture and the history of Chinatown and Little Italy. It is fun for the whole family!

4 - Boat Tour
Leave behind the pavement and set sail around New York City on the water. Providing a different perspective than the heights or the streets, boarding a vessel for a cruise is an exciting way to experience the city. Classic Harbor Line Cruise provides this opportunity with vessels suited for myriad events and groups. Splurge aboard the luxury yacht Manhattan, designed after commuter yachts of the 1920's, or settle in for a corporate outing aboard the mini-style yacht Kingston. Each craft offers different amenities to better suit your need. Take to the waters and experience a different view of the city in comfort.

For a private tour of the Statue of Liberty, or even a private breakfast tour, try S-Cruise NYC. Tours are given on Smartboat, and provide patrons with an intimate experience while seeing all that New York has to offer. Private tours start at $220 for 4 people.

5 - See a Comedy Show
Experience the excitement of live comedy at The Broadway Comedy Club. Located in the heart of times square, this comedy club offers multiple shows every night of the week with nationally touring headliners such as Myk Kaplan, Louis Katz, Nore Davis, and many more. For those brave enough to take a turn at stand up comedy, open mics occur every day of the week except for Saturday and two open mics on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Both Monday open mics offer the prize of a spot in the headliner show room later that evening for best set. With reasonable prices and quality entertainment, the Broadway Comedy Club provides an enjoyable experience on both sides of the microphone.
