If you are spending an extended period of time in New York City, or if it is not your first time visiting and you feel that you have already seen many of the most popular and common tourist attractions, consider expanding your activities outside of the most obvious parts of the city. New York has so much more to offer in the area than just what you see in Manhattan. For example, you can plan day-trips outside of the city where you can not only see a new place, but also fill your days and nights with planned activities that might be more affordable than finding entertainment in the big city. Affordable buses run out of New York City all day and night, taking you to outside destinations such as beaches, mountains, or even other cities. Greyhound offers a “Lucky Streak” service from NYC to Atlantic City, NJ where you can see the world famous Boardwalk, hang out on the beach or try your luck in one of the many opulent casinos. Not only will big casinos match your bus fare with gambling credits or tokens, but you can find great coupon deals for gambling, hotel rooms, meals and events at the casinos as well. Gamble enough and you might even get a free “comped” room for the night!
