Custom Coach and Limo would like to suggest these things for you and your group to do:


Escape from it all at Wave Hill


Wave Hill is a great expanse of green and a great cultural center spanning 28 acres and is currently open to the public.


Wave Hill used to be the playground of Manhattan millionaires who wanted to live in an area with the beautiful views of the Hudson. Now majestic oak and beech trees line the gardens, while people rest of curving paths.


You can also enjoy concerts during Sundays, art exhibits and workshops on gardening here at the Glyndor House and the Wave Hill House.

Play at Haffen Park


Haffen Park does not get too much media attention, making it one of the Bronx's biggest secret.


Haffen Park has baseball fields, basketball courts, fitness paths, playgrounds, recreation centers, tennis courts, handball, spray showers, pools, and water fountains, so there is something for everyone to do.

Go on an Italian food trip on Arthur Avenue


If you want a grand Little Italy experience, skip Manhattan's Little Italy altogether. All you could see there are second rate restaurants. Instead go to the Bronx with its real community of Italian Americans.


Eat Italian food to your heart's content here, where you can also buy meat, cheese and bread. Everything here is prepared fresh and by hand.

Watch a game at the Yankee Stadium


Although there are still who wish that they could still see the games at the old Yankee Stadium, the new one is quite a treat. Tickets are expectedly expensive, but you will have a grand experience with watching a baseball game here.


You can also get a mini museum tour by looking at the pictures of former Yankee notables that adorn the walls.


You should also visit the Monument Park where they are showcasing the plaques and awards that former team members got.
