Make the most of your trip to NYC

Monday, December 4, 2017
Welcome to New York City!  NYC is an amazing city so much to see and do here. It blows my mind how many people who visit from all around the world. Flock to New York City and then stand around Time Square looking at high buildings and advertisement lights. The streets of New York are  always busy and crowded day and night.  Definitely a fast-paced place to be.


I have not been here for years and it was great to come back.  I was so excited about it. I felt like I was finally and officially in New York City. We  usually stay on a budget hotel so I cannot speak too much on hotel stays or suggest any other accommodation options. Other than go find a hotel outside NYC.

We decided to crossed the Lincoln Tunnel it was an OK drive,  paid parking is only the option here.  Expect everything here is expensive.  We spent a lot of time walking around, eating and taking pictures.

 

๐Ÿ“Œ  Some highlights of our NYC Trip:


Time Square 
The main hot spot for tourists.  No matter what time of day it is, it's always live and vibrant.  Times Square is  swarming with people who come from all over the world to see this place.  There's plenty of shopping that can be done around here as well as several places to eat at with in the proximity . And of course, on the center of Times Square where everyone gather to watch the New Year's Eve Ball Drop.  You can't go to New York without visiting Times Square.


Empire State Building 
The world-famous  office building and one of the New York City's top destinations. It offers breathtaking 360 overview of  a beautiful city. On a clear day, you can see up to five states from the Observation Decks - New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts. This is like a thing that one 'must' do while in New York



Rockefeller Center
It is one of the main attractions of the city during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Seasons. Locals and tourists flood Rockefeller Center  to see the annual Christmas light show on Saks Fifth Avenue's Land of 1000 Lights. It is also famous for the Ice Skating Rink encased with international flags from around the world.

Radio City Music Hall
Radio City Music Hall, known as the "Showplace of the Nation", is a true New York City landmark that you must visit at least once, if not more, in your life. A beautiful and elegeant entertainment venue that hosts stage shows for Dancing With the Stars, Wheel of Fortune, Comedian Treavor Noah and is home to the fabulous Radio City Rockettes!


There are many more but this should do for now.  If you ever get a chance to visit New York, go! If you've been then you know how awesome it is and how there is always something to do. Truly the city that never sleeps. I look forward to our next trip to New York, until next time!

  23. My husband and I traveled to New York City a few years back and I had so much fun! We didn't go to any of the tourist sites, but spent most of our time in Times Square and going to pubs and comedy clubs. We also saw Rock of Ages. It was awesome!
