    Underground Subway Tour

    It's right there under your feet, you probably ride it everyday, but how much do you know about this city's amazing subway system? Take this tour to learn the history behind the iconic New York subway -- all the art, all the history, all the technical breakthroughs, all the "whys" and all the shenanigans that went into this spectacular achievement. Start on the southern tip of Lower Manhattan at Bowling Green and delve into the underground subway system to begin your tour. Get a look at the subway that few people, even lifelong New Yorkers, usually see. Work your way up along the original 1904 system and through Times Square. Explore the areas of the system that are open to the public (not the tunnels) but in most cases overlooked. You'll finish off at Grand Central Terminal, ending with a discussion of the exterior of this iconic station. Unravel the tangled web that runs just beneath your feet with this informative tour.

    High Point Mountain Hike

    (17)
    Are you ready to go hiking? Then come embark on this miraculous journey up a beautiful trail, and gain over 1,900 feet in elevation. Prepare to cover a great amount of ground up the High Point Mountain and its V-notche exterior, a formation constructed by a large ice dam that once pressed against the side of the mountain. This is a moderate hike, including some steep and woodsy climbs, mostly near the summit. These trails are lightly traveled, ensuring some solitude as you work your way to the peak to see the area's remarkable sights. Prepare to uncover the notches and ridges created by glaciers, as well as the sedimentary rocks that still bear glacial scarring in areas. The hard work you and your group will carry out will allow you to see more terrain and higher vistas. You should expect to be tired and fulfilled on the van ride home, because this trip is expected to burn a pizza's worth of calories!
