How does Vimbly help me find New York City Classes?

Imagine if booking a cooking class meant a few clicks instead of an evening of finding schools, comparing their prices, and moving your schedule around to make it work. What if you could wake up Sunday morning and lock down a photography class for that night without picking up the phone? In the age of convenience, why does signing up for an everyday activity like pizza making require research or multiple back and forth emails to figure out basic info?

Introducing Vimbly, the easiest way to book your favorite activities or find new ones, without the heavy lifting you're used to.

Nearly three out of four people have given up on booking an activity just because of the hassle involved.

Shocked? Don't be. Trying to find what to do in New York City, and actually booking it, can be quite complicated. Do you research for hours on Google? Ask your friends for suggestions? Look through your local newspapers and accidentally come across some weird ads you hoped to never see in your life? Then, once you've finally decided on that perfect activity, do you spend the next couple of hours going back and forth trying to lock in your reservation? Probably. But there's a better way: Vimbly. Vimbly is your ultimate tool for experiencing the best things to do in NYC, including fascinating walking tours, live entertainment, food tours, cooking classes, wine tasting events, art classes, tango dance lessons, Statue of Liberty cruises, and extreme athletics. With minimal clicks, find and book activities, things to do and date ideas in New York City -- somewhere in between the new and the yet to be discovered, find everything you've been searching for.

So what's so special about New York City and its activities and events? Part of its appeal stems from NYC just being plain awesome; not to mention it's home to a lot of famous and influential people, including Franklin D. Roosevelt, Woody Allen, Scarlett Johansson, Jay-Z, and Donald Trump to name a few (interesting bunch, huh?). As far as monumental events that take place in this city -- St. Patrick's Day Parade, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, New Year's Eve, 4th of July Fireworks -- nobody does it better. Just by being here, whether as a local or tourist, with its vast innovation and architectural prowess, you not only feel special, you feel like anything is possible. (Or, at least that's what the good beer and wine tasting events are for!) It's amazing to think how New York City's most iconic borough of Manhattan, a tiny plot of land purchased for a measly $24, could grow up and become the most influential city in the world. With bars open till 4 AM, trains running all night, and a young, energetic after-work-happy-hour-party-all-night crowd, it's no wonder why NYC is the city that never sleeps. Whatever it is, there's no denying that the combination of activities and New York City's constant exuberance for entering the unknown, provide a truly limitless experience.

But it's all up to you to make it happen when you book your next adventure. On any regular day, browse Vimbly for thousands of fun and amazing things to do in NYC. You can walk to, go, partake in, and do just about anything. For example, what if today your main objective was to learn more about this fascinating city? Why not start off by immersing yourself in its history and cultural aspects by embarking on one of many available excursions or walking tours? You'll be able to see the city's astonishing sites like Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, Empire State Building, Times Square, and even walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. You could also take a walking tour navigating through the city's illustrious and ethnically rich neighborhoods, including Harlem, Williamsburg, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and the Lower East Side. If walking just isn't your thing, perhaps you could partake in a cruise, boat tour, or bike tour (yes, these do exist!) and discover the city's architectural layout, skyline, buildings, city structure, and unforgettable sights from the eyes of a navigator. But maybe you're all about experiencing the city through your insatiable appetite. Enjoy a diverse food adventure unlike any other as you hone your culinary expertise with a knife skills cooking class or witness the pizzerias that put Brooklyn on the map with a salivating pizza tour.

The opportunities are endless. For both tourists and locals alike, Vimbly provides the opportunity to learn and explore NYC's new or "must see" activities and landmarks -- this is the Melting Pot capital of the world after all. Every excursion, trip, fun activity, or date idea is filled with high expectations and things to do that amount to epic proportions.

Still not sold on how Vimbly can bring you the true New York experience? Just try searching for that pole dancing class you've always wanted to do, or take a leap of faith with an activity you never even knew existed -- all at the lowest available price. Need even more convincing? Vimbly is also home to the best collection of free things to do in NYC. It's hard to imagine at first, but your days can actually be spent anywhere... for free! Witness the historical landmarks with a Central Park walking tour, work on your self defense with a krav maga martial arts class, feel sensual while dancing the night away with a salsa dance lesson -- all of which are freer than some good old fashioned East River air. So, why not indulge? Fun events and date ideas, such as brewery tours, rock climbing, improv classes, wine and cheese tastings, pole dance classes, Broadway plays, and stand-up comedy shows, among hundreds more, are all right there at your fingertips.

Days in New York City are unforgettable, but it's the nights that truly win you over. The lights, the refreshing breeze from the water, the beer, the lounges, the restaurants, the live music, the skyline, the theaters, the people -- this is truly the good life. This is why Vimbly loves it here in the Big Apple, and why the goal has always been to make it more convenient to find and book fun things to do in NYC. With Vimbly, there is no limit to what you can explore and do in this amazing city!
