Destinations: New York City’s Chinatown

If you want a taste of the exotic without leaving the country, Reston Limousine can take you straight to China — as in New York City’s historic Chinatown.

It’s the perfect mini-vacation: Catch our bus in McLean and ride in air-conditioned comfort all the way to the Big Apple. You’ll arrive just in time for lunch at one of the best foodie areas in the city, where more than 200 restaurants offer an array of dining experiences.

Not sure where to start? If you’re already there, the best place to begin would be the information kiosk on Canal at the intersection of Walker and Baxter. Open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Daily, the kiosk provides free maps, guides and brochures to help you explore Chinatown.

Of course, it’s always best to do your research in advance; following are some helpful online articles and Web sites to get you started:
