Planning for New York!

As my trip to New York in April is quickly approaching it got me thinking about all the incredible things I want to do and places I want to visit whilst I'm there. I can't wait until I can stop googling and writing about all of this and actually be experiencing it. New York has always been on the top of my travel bucket list, I can't believe it's actually happening. 

I have a few definite things I want to do whilst I'm in New York, I guess typical tourist places such as Times Square, Central Park, The Empire State building and The Statue of Liberty. Although New York is a major shopping city, I'm really not all that interested in that side of things. Don't get me wrong I'll have lots of fun looking and I'm almost certain I'll buy a few bits and pieces, but I'm more keen to do things that will hold memories instead of buying a ton of material things that in a few years I more than likely won't have anymore. Other things on the list that I would love to do whilst I'm there is, Central park Zoo and the 9/11 museum & tour which I can imagine will be incredibly moving. The list of things to do in New York is endless I'm sure but with only having a limited time there I need to make the most out of the time I do have.

Whilst I'll be very busy visiting all of those places, being in New York means one last thing, food! Lots of food. I am ready to indulge in everything I possibly can whilst I'm out there and I will not feel one ounce of guilt. Ever since I saw something on BuzzFeed about these amazing milkshakes made at Black Tap, which you can check out here, I've craved one. I NEED to visit and try one for myself whilst obviously eating a huge pizza because why not. 

Just another 2 and a half months to go and then I'll be there spamming your instagram and twitter feeds with all of my pictures, I can't wait.

  2. I've been to New York twice. If Empire State is busy, go up Rockafeller, it's just as good. Central Park zoo is small but worth it for the Penguins & seals. My tip is find a nice independent diner for breakfast as they'll do gorgeous food cheaply. They sell cheaper theatre tickets in Time Square on the day of the show, worth going to see something you can't see in the UK. Where are you staying? Tweet me (@EducatingR) & we can chat NY & I'll rack my brains for any other tips! ☺️

    1. Ahhh that's amazing!! Thank you for the tips. I heard that the Zoo was pretty small but that's kind of handy as it isn't a really important thing to do it's just on the list. Thank you, I'll tweet you :)

  4. Ooh you'll have the most amazing trip, New York is my favourite place in the world. If you're planning to do the majority of the tourist attractions I would totally recommend checking out the New York Pass https://www.newyorkpass.com/ - It's about £160 but we saved so much money and you also get fast track entry to loads of places. Hope you have an amazing time! xo
