Eric’s Tip: “If you are visiting New York during one of the public holidays, you should be aware that there may changes to opening hours and other special arrangements. If there is a parade on Fifth Avenue, for example, the Hop on Hop off buses will most likely adjust the routes. Despite any disruptions, you will have the opportunity to experience New York in a unique way.”
