New York is an incredible place and somewhere everyone should visit at least once in their life. Avid readers of my blog will know that I’ve been before and absolutely adored my experience there. But what do you need to know before you head to the city that never sleeps?
Travel In Style
Once you arrive at one of the NYC airports, you have a range of choices for getting to your hotel. There’s the classic yellow taxi, Uber or perhaps a bus. But if you want to be a tad more stylish and a lot more ostentatious, you could book a limo. According to http://www.bergenlimo.com/services/ewr-newark-airport-limo-service/ limos run regularly from destinations around the city to Newark Airport. That means when you’re ready to say farewell to this wonderful city you can pass over the Brooklyn Bridge in a truly glorious fashion.
This has been mentioned before but as much as you might love your heels, it’s best to choose flats for a trip to New York. There’s a lot of walking to do and three inch heels could be excruciating for your feet. Even a little heel will feel like a stone in your sole by the time you have walked all around Central Park. Of course, you can get a bike ride around this wonderful square of green in the centre of the city and there are even guided tours. Here, the person taking you around the park will tell you all you want to know about it such as where iconic scenes from films were shot. Interestingly, the famous opening from ‘Friends’ wasn’t filmed here at all, but that’s another story.
Take A Lot Of Spending Money
If you’ve never been to Fifth Avenue, you’re in for a real treat. There are high end stores that won’t let you in unless you flash a credit card at the door. You’ll certainly struggle to keep inside your spending budget here. Not to worry though because it will all be worth it for those killer designer styles that are going to look absolutely tremendous.
Evening On The Town
After you’ve bought a stunning outfit why not take it out for a spin on the town. There are lots of wonderful places to eat in New York away from the typical tourist traps. For instance, the Gramercy Tavern offers all American cuisine in a quaint little tavern. You’ll love the atmosphere in this corner street restaurant. You can find it’s menu on https://www.gramercytavern.com/.
Of course, no visit to NYC is complete without a trip to see a show on Broadway. The hot ticket right now is still Hamilton but there are other selections such as the Tony winning Dear Evan Hansen. And, starting next year, you’ll be able to get tickets for a sure to be enchanting showing of Frozen.
As you can see, there’s nowhere quite like NYC. If you’re heading there soon take my advice. Travel in style, eat away from the tourist buzz spots and make sure you shop until you drop over on Fifth Avenue.
