New York Westminster Show!

Westminster Dog Show Delights  - For Dog (and New York City) Lovers
A complete travel package highlighting America's greatest dog event!

Saturday, February 14 - Arrival in New York and Welcome Reception

New York CIty at Night - Westminster Dog Show~ Depart from your hometown for New York City. Manage your own transportation, or let us assist you in arranging air tickets and airport/hotel transfers. Upon arrival in New York, check into our great hotel: The 4-star Radisson Martinique which is located just one block from the evening dog show activities, has two great on-site restaurants, and is where many of the show dogs stay! This is a great location offering lots of pre and post dog show interaction.

After you’re settled in, enjoy the sights of the city as you choose… select from the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, explore Greenwich Village or the art galleries in SoHo, shop Fifth Avenue, enjoy fabulous Central Park, hit the museums – this city has something for everyone and the professionals at Huron Tours will assist with your New York City plans.

This evening join your fellow Huron Tours travelers for our included welcome reception. This event is a wonderful chance to mingle and enjoy some good company complete with hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Afterward, the evening will be free to explore the city, have a light dinner, or catch a Broadway show.

New faces at the show every year!

Beagle at Westminster Dog ShowSunday, February 15 - Exclusive Private City Tour and Lunch at Katz's Deli

~ Today is a special day organized just for Huron Tours' travelers! We’ll start with a city tour on our private, deluxe motorcoach to see some of the best highlights of New York. During our morning guided city tour you’ll see Wall Street, the Twin Towers site, Battery Park, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, Fifth Avenue, Times Square, The Empire State Building, Central Park, and lots more! Before we end our day you’ll enjoy lunch in our favorite New York deli, Katz’s Delicatessen, made famous by the “I’ll have what she’s having” scene from When Harry Met Sally. This is a special catered event in the deli - something many New Yorkers would gladly give an arm for (and when you see the lines you get to SKIP, you'll understand why).

Before returning to the hotel, we'll make a convenient stop in Times Square for those of you with tickets to a Broadway matinée. We can purchase excellent advance tickets for you for Wicked, Mamma Mia, The Jersey Boys, Billy Elliott or any others you may be interested in. Please call early to review availability and prices. (included Lunch)

Monday and Tuesday, February 16 and 17 - Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

~ Both Monday and Tuesday are Westminster Kennel Club dog show days! Although this year’s activities will take place at two separate locations, Piers 92/94 and Madison Square Garden, we’ve made transferring easy with our private shuttle service. You can see the dogs compete at the Piers during the morning and afternoon and then be transferred back to your hotel when you're ready for a break. For the evening sessions we’ll escort you over to Madison Square Garden to catch all the action. Because we have been working with the Westminster Kennel Club for so many years, we are able to provide you with excellent seats for all the showings, including the nationally televised Best in Show on Tuesday evening.

Westminster is just as good as you expect it to be and better! It is a dog-lovers paradise as you can meet the dogs and handlers in the benching area, take all the up-close pictures you desire, watch all the dogs being groomed and shop for great quality canine related merchandise in the large marketplace. The different venue for judging during the day means a larger entry limit and even more dogs for 2015! You’ll feel the excitement as more than 3,200 winners compete and the 28 Best of Breeds are selected, whittled down to the 7 Best in Group and then finally only the top dog remains! What a treat to see it all in person.

Included with your package is the official Westminster Program to follow all the competition as well as dog breeder and handler details.

Wednesday, February 18 - Departure day - or extend your stay with our special Westminster hotel pricing.

~ Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and today we depart for home with memories of a most special visit to a city at a very special time.

Or, stay longer and take advantage of our specially priced rates and add additional hotel nights. Many of our past travelers have extended their trip to have more free time to enjoy the sights of New York such as Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, art museums, or a Broadway show!
