Leading more than 30 bike tours across the nation, the cycling enthusiasts at Bike and Roll fuel a passion for healthy, eco-friendly transportation via guided tours and self-guided rides atop rental bikes. Their fleet of two-wheelers stakes a claim to Trek bicycles—the same brand that propelled Lance Armstrong to victory—and other recreation, transportation, road, and children's bikes. Riders can pedal behind a guide during the Ride 'Round Manhattan tour, which circles the Statue of Liberty and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial before cruising along the Harlem River bike path. More adventurous cyclists can board rental cycles on their own and confer with free maps to conduct a jaunt across the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while drinking in the skyline and making Waldo spottings along the river. Bike and Roll also outfits patrons with other specialty transportation, such as in-line skates, segways, and magic carpets programmed to swing past the tops of only historic buildings.:m]]

About a block from the Algonquin, the blazing marquees of Broadway light up the night, competing for attention with the neon-coated buildings of Times Square. On West 49th, the 1922 Ambassador Theater lures sightseers into an auditorium lavished with plaster molding and gilt designs. There, the Tony Award–winning Chicago unfolds with vaudevillian glitz and iconic jazz numbers (tickets included with this Getaways deal). Though many of the city's landmarks are within walking distance of the theater district, a three-hour cruise on a double-decker ferry around Manhattan from Circle-Line Sightseeing provides a more panoramic view of the skyline, skimming past the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty (tickets included with this Getaways deal). When it comes time to explore again on foot, Central Park awaits about a 30-minute walk north of the hotel. There, as autumn turns to winter, the bare tree branches complement the sleek lines of surrounding skyscrapers, and ice-skating rinks reflect glimmering city streetlights and nature's streetlights, the smiles of children.New York Guest's agents live in the city and work in central Manhattan, enabling them to handpick itineraries (such as this one) based on local expertise.

The history of Liberty Hall Museum stretches back more than 200 years. The original 14-room Georgian home was built in 1772 and served as the home of New Jersey's first elected governor. As the years passed, Liberty Hall became the home of governors, senators, entrepreneurs, and congressmen as it slowly expanded into a 50-room mansion. Presidents George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Herbert Hoover, and Gerald Ford all stayed here. Collections of antique furniture, toys, tools, and ceramics from several generations fill the rooms.

Today, Liberty Hall Museum gives visitors an inside look at what life was like during America's early days, when the Founding Fathers were drafting the Constitution and Betsy Ross was sewing the Statue of Liberty’s gown. Inside the home, you’ll see historical fashions and furnishings; outside, ancient trees shade a carefully maintained English-style parterre garden. The onsite firehouse, added in 2005, serves as an educational center, where youngsters can don firefighter gear and play on a fully restored antique fire truck.
