What we're about

If you love walking, hiking and sightseeing and you live in the Greater New York area consider hitting the streets & trails with us. Our lively sightseeing walks and hikes are hosted by a born and raised New Yorker who loves sharing the highlights of the city as well as its little-known treasures. Are you new in town or a longtime local? Cool! Let's explore! If you love walking the city and feasting your eyes on all its beauty and excitement, this is the spot for you. All people of all ages are welcome.

This MeetUp is a spin-off of an existing hiking MeetUp in South Jersey. Check out the descriptions, comments and photos of epic hikes and adventures we've enjoyed over the past year by visiting "Haddonfield Hiking & Adventure Storytelling" here on MeetUp. We've been organizing events since October 2017.

There's so much to see. Ready? Let's go!

Boutique & Bubbly Discovery Stroll

Columbus Circle/Entrance to Central Park/Merchant's Gate.


Add a little sparkle and sightseeing to your day, wether you're local or from out of town. Grab a bite to eat before you arrive because we will "kick off" the stroll with a glass of bubbly in one of the Upper West Side's most delightful rooftop bars - expect an epic view! - then we'll start exploring! During this 3-hour stroll, we will pop in and out of the cocktail spots and unique only-in-New York gift shops you may have missed discovering on your own or may have always wanted to make the time to visit. We'll start and end the stroll with cocktails but in between we'll be moving - our aim will be to see the area's most unique gift shops and most enjoyable places to celebrate cocktail hours. By the end of this walk you will have found a whole new collection of places to amaze your out-of-town guests with or to enjoy any time. When we hit the "finish line" we will celebrate with a toast at a historic location that feels sun-splashed even on the grayest of days! WHAT IT WILL COST: The cost for this event is just $5 per person. On our cocktail stops, each person will pay for their own beverage (bubbly or other). Please note that at each location, cocktails cost in the area of $15 per drink. HOW TO GET THERE: Columbus Circle is accessed by 4 subway lines so it is easy to reach from almost anywhere in Manhattan. Take the A, B, C or the #1 train to reach this location. WHERE TO MEET: West 59th Street at Columbus Circle at the entrance to Central Park/Merchant's gate. Meet at the base of the gilded sculpture known as The Maine Monument. I'll be wearing a big red scarf to make it easy to spot me. WHAT TO BRING: Wear comfortable foot wear and please dress for the weather conditions - this is a rain or shine walk since we will be popping in and out of indoor locations.
