This past summer, I spent the month of May in NYC. Since I’ve ventured to the city several times before, I hadn’t planned on much other than meeting up with friends, trying out new restaurants, and admiring the view of the East River from my DUMBO rental.
I’ve never really been a huge movie fan. I’m actually more interested in the behind the scenes aspects, so I was super excited when On Location Tours invited me to check out their Sex and the City Hotspots Tour.
We made stops at Buddakan, the location of Carrie and Big’s rehearsal dinner, The Magnolia Bakery, where Carrie and Miranda ate cupcakes while chatting it up about Carrie’s new boyfriend Aiden and infamous Pleasure Chest, where Charlotte was coaxed into buying a Rabbit (tour participants get a 15% discount) among many others.
Even if you aren’t a die hard SATC fan, you can still enjoy the tour around some of Manhattan’s diverse neighborhoods. Plus, if Sex and the City isn’t your cup of tea there are still plenty of options for you. On Location Tours has recently launched two new bus tours. The TCM Classic Film Tour presents an insider’s view on the film history of New York City, highlighting classics like King Kong, Superman and Ghostbusters. The TMZ Tour NYC offers never revealed details on your favorite celebrities and the inside scoop on the stories that made TMZ famous.
