How to do a weekend in NYC


I’m in a New York state of mind…

While many of my posts are about international travel, I wanted to write about another place closer to home and to my heart.

New York City is one of my favorite places! It never gets old to me. There is so much to do and see and the energy and hustle & bustle always makes me excited! I try to do at least one New York trip a year.

One of my first trips to NYC was in July a few years ago and we did a booze cruise down the Hudson River! The boat had music and cocktails and was a nice blend of both tourists and locals who had just gotten off work ready to enjoy the weekend. We got to see a completely different view of the city from the water and watched the sun set against the skyline. We ended up befriending some locals on the boat and went for dinner and drinks afterwards. If you’re going in the Spring or Fall one of my favorite things to do is pack a picnic or swing by a bodega, bring a blanket and go sit in a park. This is a great tip especially if you’re on a budget and not wanting to eat out for every meal.

  2. Thanks very much for this! Do you have any recommendations for those with babies? She’s too small to go to kid’s events (she’ll be 7 months old by then) but we’d love to still be able to get a lot of the city with her.

    1. I will have to think on this! I personally haven’t had experience traveling with babies BUT I don’t want to leave you hanging. One of my favorite bloggers is Amber Fillerup and she lived in NYC with her newborn (she has two toddlers now) so I wanted to share some helpful articles for you! she has so many kid friendly travel posts! I just did a “search” on the top right of her blog. She took her babies to markets and on picnics – of course depending on the time of year you guy will depend what activities you want to do! ❀
