Walk along Fifth Avenue, the most famous avenue in New York and some would say the world. See its high-end department stores, world-famous hotels and impressive museums. Start at the Plaza Hotel, enter the most famous toy store in the world and take a walk around Tiffany to see the famous yellow Tiffany diamond. Hear the history and special aspects of these sites and then end your tour at the base of Fifth Avenue, Washington Square Park. Splash around in the fountain and enjoy the music and people.
