When the year began, I knew that I wanted to travel more but I had not idea we’d start so soon. In February, we took our first trip; we packed up and headed to New York! While, I realize this was nearly two months ago, I still wanted to share my experience with you. Especially because I know that as the weather warms up NYC is a destination that many people consider.
I have wanted to visit New York for as long as I can remember. And I’ve had a list of things to do; the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, etc. I honestly didn’t have many expectations, but part of me thought it would be like in the movies.
Interestingly enough, New York reminded me a lot of Europe, from the weather to the architecture. Yet it was such a unique city and like no other I have visited before. We spent four days there as a family and though the weather wasn’t too friendly we had fun each day. Keep scrolling to see what we did in NYC and see if you could add these to your itinerary.
Day One: Times Square + Empire State Building
Our first stop was Time Square because it is a must while in New York. Also, because our hotel was nearby. And being there, among so many tourist who traveled as far as we did to see this magical city gave us all kinds of feels. We saw all the screens in awe and got to witness how others searched for the perfect shot to take back home as a memory and souvenir.
Our second stop on this first day was the Empire State Building, another icon and must see while in NYC. What I loved most at the ESB was the views from the viewing deck. We made it just after nightfall, but it was a beautiful sight nonetheless.
