I'm in a Super Bowl State of Mind: New York City
If you haven’t been over to Times Square and Broadway yet, you’re in for a week of Super Bowl madness. Last night I saw the testing of the New Jersey-New York Super Bowl Toboggan on Super Bowl Boulevard. A very chilly experience at 41st Street and Broadway. (I was much happier after I stopped for a build-your-own burger at The Counter and sipped on a lovely California zinfandel). Broadway will be closed down to cars from 47th Street to 34th Street so pedestrians can enjoy the shops, merriment, and snacks amid the freezing temperatures. You can also register on-location for free access to the NFL Network, ESPN and FOX broadcast sets as well as the Vince Lombardi Trophy display. Some of the fun activities: take a photo with the Vice Lombardi Trophy, receive free autographs from NFL players, kick a field goal through NFL uprights, ride the 60’ toboggan,and enjoy giveaways and free snacks throughout.
Plan your trip to New York City easily with detailed maps, kids admission prices, family-friendly hotel amenities, and lists of the best things to see and do in every neighborhood -- all kid-friendly and lots of fun.
