With winter on its way, many of us are looking to get out for one last excursion this fall. Looking to travel in the coming weeks? Why not take a bus to New York City? C&J is here to not only get you to where you want to go, but share some exciting things to do in the city.

Here are some of our favorite NYC attractions and must-sees for your next trip.

Madame Morbid’s Trolley Tours

Interested in a spooky outing? Madame Morbid’s Trolley Tours takes you around Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods to learn about true crimes, ghostly encouragers, and local legends. You’ll travel in style in a Victorian trolley designed to look like a funeral parlor and watch mini-documentaries and play trivia as you visit the sites and learn about more than 400 years of history. Tickets for the 90-minute, non-stop ride cost $49 in September and November, and $59 in October. You can learn more here

Check out the Foliage

Leaf-peepers rejoice! There are plenty of options to view the beautiful foliage in and around New York. Whether it be strolling through the city’s parks or taking a short train ride to other stops throughout the state, you’ll be able to view the bright pops of color that the season is known for. You can see a list of the best places to view foliage in the city here.
