Most people don’t need a lot of convincing when it comes to planning a visit to the Big Apple. NYC is considered the epicenter of the world and the heartbeat of everything to love about America – sights, sounds, history, and tons of entertainment. It can be hard to do New York City on a tight budget, so we recommend that you plan out an itinerary in advance that includes some of the “Must Visits” and mixes in some free or low-cost options, too.
What should you do if you visit? Take in a Broadway show (you can get same day discount tickets if you’re flexible), shop your way down Fifth Avenue, in Times Square, and at Rockefeller Center, visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum, take a ferry to Ellis Island and check out the Statue of Liberty, and spend a day at the American Museum of Natural History.
Looking for some free things to do? Take a walk in historic Central Park, wander around Times Square, people watch in Grand Central Station, read a book at the New York Public Library in Bryant Park, visit Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, or walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.
The “City That Never Sleeps” won’t disappoint you after-hours either. Make reservations at a place on Restaurant Row in Hell’s Kitchen. Grab a drink in Midtown. Or, get a beer at Fraunces Tavern – the oldest bar in NYC. George Washington used to party here!
Anytime is a good time to get outside with friends, but the best time for a Brews & Clues tour is when all the bars are serving.
Meet at the starting location, create a team name, and log in with your team. The tour will guide you through the city while you explore historic landmarks, learn local history, answer trivia questions, and solve puzzles. As you go, you’ll be guided to some of the best bars in town!
Tours typically take 3-4 hours to complete, but every team goes at their own pace. There is no time limit. We encourage people to make a day of it and enjoy each location as long as they want without feeling rushed.
No drinks are included with the price of your Brews & Clues ticket. From time to time on the tour, we may recommend our local favorites, but ultimately it’s up to you to decide what (and how much) you drink along the way.
In order to answer some questions on your tour, you’ll be asked to go in and out of bars, pubs and tap rooms. Some of those places, depending on the time of day, may restrict entry to anyone under 21.
Absolutely. We designed Brews & Clues to work on any smartphone without the need to download an app. As long as you can get on the internet, you can access the tour.
We have several team sizes available for different groups of people. When you’re purchasing your tour choose the size that works for you.
No worries—drinking is not required on the tour. Whether you drink or not, the experience is designed as fun, interactive and challenging for everyone to enjoy. Even without a buzz, we’re confident that you’ll have a good time.
It was a lot of fun! You didn’t feel like it was nearly 3 miles long because the stops are nicely spaced out. You get to experience a lot of historical landmarks while enjoying some equally great bars and pubs! The trivia is fun and challenging with a few tricky questions 😉 We liked that it was self guided and we were able to go at our own pace.
