Mark your calendars, because from January 17th to February 5th, 2017 NYC Attractions Week takes over the city, and you’re going to want to get in on the action. For a little over two and a half weeks, some of New York City’s most beloved attractions will be participating in a 2-for-1 deal that allows you to purchase two-person admission for the price of one ticket. That’s right, grab your bestie and get to planning, because deals like this don’t come around often. Need some help deciding where to go and what to do? Check out our top 5 picks for NYC Attractions Week below.
