Two months after my time in New York I am finally getting around to sharing it with you all. The weekend was all about packet pickup, the marathon, eating, and early bedtimes, but luckily I was able to have Monday and Tuesday afterwards to play tourist. This was my very first visit in New York City and I absolutely loved it. While I am glad I live here in Charleston, I cannot wait to go back and visit again. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite parts of my NYC Tourist Time.
Number 1 on my list, my favorite by far, was getting to walk around Central Park and checking out the beautiful fall colors. I didn’t get to walk around too much because of some foot pain, so I dream of going back and running around Central Park sometime when I am fully healthy. It would be first priority on my list for a future visit.
Along with that I enjoyed going to the Top of the Rock. While it is a pricier excursion, I thought it was worth it to see the views of Central Park and the city from over 60 feet up. It isn’t something I would do every time I am in NYC, but it is something I think should be done at least once.
I also visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum and it was extremely solemn and very moving. It was very educational and interesting and I am so glad that I went. I really suggest everyone go check it out. This is something you should see once. Now that I have seen it once, I plan on visiting The Met, MoMA or the Whitney next time with my museum money instead – there are so many options in NYC.
If you happen to be in NYC in November or December then be sure to head to Bryant Park. They set up a huge Christmas market with hundreds of vendors. Mostly small stores where you can buy all sorts of fabulous gifts, but also some food vendors too.
Finally, if you are like me and love theater then there is just something about getting to see a show on Broadway. It is so exciting! I personally love musicals, so I had an amazing time checking out Jersey boys (and tried hard not to sing along).
Let me know –
What is your favorite part of New York?
