Thanks to Central Avenue Hyundai for collaborating on this post. As always, opinions are my own.
I’ve visited New York City many times – sometimes flying, sometimes driving. When driving into the city, I would often park in a safer area and use public transit – I found I was able to see more of the city this way. If you’re in the area, and in the market for a car, Central Avenue Hyundai is the largest Hyundai dealer in Westchester & that metro area and offers the best prices in the tri-state area. They have an express lane oil change center, and if your car is being serviced more, they offer a large waiting room with wi-fi and refreshments to make your visit more enjoyable. They’re definitely work checking out!
Several years ago, the husband and I took a whirlwind trip to New York City – just the two of us – and it’s one that I think of often. It was a weekend-long, and we were able to cover so much ground (literally and figuratively.) If you’re considering a trip to NYC, whether it’s your first visit or your tenth, this is what I suggest you check out:
A double-decker bus tour. You can see SO MUCH of the city this way, and can hop on and off while sightseeing. You know a bus is coming back around, and you’ll see much more than if you were taking a train. My cousin recommended this to us, and she’s lived in NYC for years.
A baseball game. Whether you are a Yankees fan (of course!) or a Mets fan (I’m sorry) or a fan of neither, a baseball game is so much fun! We last saw the Yankees in their old stadium, and I’ve been to three or four games since I was a kid.
See a show. We got tickets to see Chicago for a really reasonable price. You can always check TKTS booth the day of shows to see what they have last minute and at really discounted rates.
Are you even in New York if you don’t have pizza? I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the pizza places in New York.
The 9/11 Memorial. I visited New York throughout the construction of the memorial and while I haven’t been in a few years, the site is something you should take in. I’ve seen it in various stages of construction, and every time I’m impressed with the memorial. It’s a beautiful space to reflect on everything that happened in that spot and to our country on September 11.
I have taken my (at the time) 85-year-old grandma to New York City, spent time with my husband in NYC and I went there with family as a kid. The only thing I haven’t done yet is check out the city with kids, but I am hoping that day is coming in another couple of years!
What’s your favorite thing to check out in the city?
