The Upper East Side, Manhattan
I love New York. I try to go every year (this year I’ve made it twice!) because it is one of my favorite places to visit. Whether you’ve traveled to the city a lot or have never been, here are a few of my personal picks. I’ve tried to include a few different activities to give you variety and new ideas. Here are my tips for a full weekend spent in NYC:
1. Find the perfect vista.
3. See a show.
Head to Times Square the day you want to go for half-priced tickets. Still too much? Just head to Marie’s Crisis.
4. Find a smaller museum.
My personal favorite is the Frick, but the Guggenheim has an amazing interior (a tall, white spiraling staircase hosts the main collection) and the Brooklyn Museum is worth a stop if you’re in the area.
5. Walk your heart out.
No matter where you’re staying, explore the area. I completely stumbled upon Prospect Park one day when I was strolling Brooklyn and admiring the brownstones.
