Last week I got to be the ultimate Resident Tourist and ride along with On Location Tours for their newly launched TMZ Tour. If you are a TMZ addict visiting New York, you have to check this out - during the tour we got the inside scoop on all the celebrity hotspots including restaurants, clubs, and even residences. There was plenty of TMZ humor throughout the ride, and Ricky, our energetic tour guide, had the bus riled up - giving away TMZ t-shirts to the extra enthused. My favorite part was seeing all the hot restaurants frequented by the Hollywood elite - Da Silvano, Nobu Tribeca, and Bar Pitti have officially moved to the top of my list for downtown dinner options.
New Yorkers, I understand why you wouldn't want to go on this tour (unless you want to play Resident Tourist like me. Try it out sometime, it's fun!). But do you ever find that you have a guest in town that's never been to the city? Sometimes it gets overwhelming trying to plan how and where to take them around. An On Location Tour is the perfect starting point!
The TMZ tour is ideal for your pop culture junkie best friend. But there are so many other tours to choose from: Sex and The City Hotspots, Sopranos Sites, the TMC Classic Film Tour... Be sure to check out all available tours HERE. Personally, I think the Holiday Lights and Movie Sites tour will be a must for the winter season. What better way to see NYC all lit up than from the warmth of a luxury tour bus? RT Tip: Bring some hot chocolate and cookies for extra coziness and cheer.
A huge thanks to On Location Tours for inviting me along for the ride!
