To us, visiting New York is like visiting a life-long best friend. When we arrive we’re overwhelmed with all the catching up there is to do, and when the time comes to say goodbye, it’s downright painful! There is SO much to do, see, eat, and try in NYC… so we recommend coming up with a gameplan. It’s always smart to have a list of your “Must Do’s” while in the city, but leave room to wander and explore! While Times Square is truly remarkable (especially at night), don’t eat there. The food is expensive, touristy, and mostly chain restaurants. Foodies, make sure you get off the beaten path!! Don’t forget to ask the locals for recommendations, some of the best places we’ve discovered have been from word of mouth. Here’s a few of our favorite NYC spots!
