1. Bring light clothes – This summer, pack light, breathable clothing like cotton shirts, dresses, and khakis. While there may not be a lot of walking per se (since you’ll be moving to and from destinations on an air-conditioned bus), loose clothing will help keep you cool and comfortable in the hot and humid weather. The last thing you want is to look uncomfortable in your pictures due to profuse sweating.

2. Don’t forget to tip for excellent service – This tip isn’t exclusive to the summer season, but it’s worth mentioning anyway as you may encounter more people out and about this time of the year. This includes street performers and artists, the bellhop and maid in the hotel you’ll be staying at, as well as staff in the movies and museums, to name a few. If you were provided excellent service or a great show, don’t forget to tip. Tipping is customary in New York City.

3. Learn Manhattan’s street system – Even if you’re on New York City bus tours, there’s still value in learning Manhattan’s street system, in case you get lost or have some free time to do some exploring on your own. In a nutshell, Manhattan is divided into three areas: Uptown, Midtown, and Downtown. As for the street and avenue numbers, just remember that street numbering increases as you go north while avenue numbering increases as you head west – that’s it! You’re good to go to navigate around Manhattan.
