Last month I was in America and first up was New York and what a place it is! The most populated city in the U.S, New York City is home to more than 8-million residents and home to an array of meeting venues making it a fantastic business meeting destination.
The scale of New York is hard to take for a first time visitor, there are over 120 museums, 400 theatres, 25,000 restaurants and 18 miles of beach! Every visitor must pack into a stay as much as possible and no matter what, must take a ride in one of the famous yellow taxies, see the familiar sights of TV and cinema – Times Square, see the views from the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and of course stroll down Broadway and Fifth Avenue.
I would definitely recommend catching the Staten Island Ferry or getting a VIP Helicopter tour that will take you about and around the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, a great way to see the historical sites of the city from both the sea and the air.
New York is beyond doubt one of the most exciting cities in the world. It is a thriving city where almost everything is possible and where anything goes.
Part two of the trip was Boston! One of the most historical cities in the United States, Boston has a lot of interesting things to do. This world class city is home to many famed attractions, such as the JFK Library and Museum, historic Faneuil Hall and Quincy Marketplace, the Freedom Trail, Harvard University and America’s favourite ballpark – Fenway Park home of the Boston ‘Red Sox’.
The central library, a cathedral like building with exquisite murals and grand staircase can be hired out for private and corporate events. For something different there is the bar and restaurant ‘Cheers’ with the exterior of the bar that featured in the original TV show that can also be hired out for events.
The other great thing about Boston is water. There is so much of it, but it really is beautiful. Because of this, boat trips and water sports are plentiful and a must for any visiting incentive travel group. There’s certainly plenty to do. Boston is a great incentive destination for delegates and guests to experience the culture and history.
It is impossible to capture all of the excitement, culture and history that New York City and Boston can offer conference attendees and meeting planners in just a few paragraphs, so the best solution is to see for yourself and plan your next destination meeting in one of these exciting cities!
