Things to do in NYC: Sex and the City Tour

May 27, 2008 - by Ellis Whitman

Sex and the City (SATC), the movie, is opening in theaters on May 30, but the real SATC experience can be had daily in New York City. A special On Location tour follows the footsteps of Carrie & Co. as they conquer New York City! On Location Tours, Inc. is New York's only TV and movie location tour company. Founded in 1999, the company has accompanied tens of thousands of people past the doorsteps of their favorite television and movie characters. Straddle fiction and reality while you shop, eat and drink at the sites you've seen on the big and small screen. Drink where Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha drink, shop where they shop, and gossip where they gossip.

This three-and-a-half hour (approximate) guided bus tour twists and turns through the Sex and the City girls' stomping ground, visiting the restaurants where they wine and dine, the shops at the center of Carrie Bradshaw's shoe fetish, the bars they frequent, and much more! Live the chic life on an air-conditioned bus, hopping on and off to catch a glimpse into the lives of four of New York's most eligible bachelorettes.

Over 40 real-life locations are featured on the tour, including:

    * See Carrie's apartment stoop
    * Shop at the store where Charlotte bought her "Rabbit"
    * Have a cupcake at the bakery where Miranda stuffed cupcakes into her mouth
    * Have a Cosmo at a bar used on the show
    * Visit the church where Samantha meets "The Friar"
    * Go on location to the gallery in SoHo where Charlotte worked
    * See the furniture store where Aidan designs his tables and chairs
    * Get the behind-the-scenes scoop on the show.

Come prepared to experience the city - you will be getting off the bus with your guide at several of the locations. For visitors and locals alike, there is no better way to journey through Manhattan, led by your guide on a trip through Carrie & Co's favorite city. The tour occurs twice daily, and costs $40 (drinks not included).  It meets on 5th Ave, btw. 58th & 59th Sts; near Central Park. (Exact meeting location details will be provided immediately upon purchase of tickets.)
