Four friends visiting in the fall, on a budget, staying by the Museum of Natural History.
My biggest questions are: if any of the days are too packed or too empty; which day might be best for getting a Double Decker bus pass and recommendations on which one; are we missing any great food options close to our activities; and best ways to get from place to place? Thanks so much!!
