Whereas the temperature for much of the UK is not expected to enjoy anything above the mid-teens this week, Manhattan will bake at 33 degrees for much of the next ten days. Rather than scrabbling around to find rainy day activities for the kids on their summer holidays, you could be sunbathing in Central Park or cooling down in the spray from the waters of New York Harbor as you sail towards the majestic Statue of Liberty.
If you’ve already exhausted the nearby attractions at home, this five-day trip to New York would provide a whole host of exciting opportunities for excursions. From your base in a two-bedroom suite at the Park Hyatt New York, you are just a stone’s throw from the prestigious Carnegie Hall concert venue, the glittering lights of Times Square and the stunning views of this thrilling city from the Top of the Rock observatory at the Rockerfeller Centre.
There would be no need to reach for a tin of budget-brand soup to keep you warm, as you might have to during the so-called British summer. On this VIP New York trip you’ll have breakfast at the hotel, a £50-per-guest allowance for lunch and £100 each to spend on dinner. As part of the prize, there will be reservations made for you to sample tasting menus at some of the city’s swankiest eateries, meaning that you will be able to sample the very best of the cosmopolitan city’s cuisine. It certainly beats a hurried visit to the local Wimpy to avoid the rain.
The last Friday EuroMillions draw of the month is designated as a Mega Friday draw, in which the usual Millionaire Maker award of £1 million is complemented by a luxurious non-cash prize, befitting of the winner’s new-found millionaire status. Previous winners have received swanky sports cars and round-the-world adventures.
EuroMillions tickets are on sale now for tonight’s £10 million draw and you can get hold of them online or from an authorised retailer in any of the participating countries. Good luck!
