My Ultimate Guide to New York

My gift to you all this crazy Wednesday is a rather large New York guide! I said I would do a city guide in full for you, as New York is one of those places that you want to see a lot of.

I’ve been to NYC three times so far this year, so I’m not quite the expert, but I think my friends and I  have found some gems worth sharing. We really didn’t stop when we were there! It’s such an incredible city, with so much to pack in. When we went in February, I was wishing for someone to make me a guide by area so we could fit in as much as possible, so I’ve kind of done that for you guys. It’s ideal for when you’re snooping around Soho and fancy something to eat or whatever!

We always see the city on foot, because you do stumble across gems and see more that way – although the Subway is cheap so don’t rule it out! I’ve broken down my guide into three categories:

Hope you find this mini guide useful! As is known, there are SO many places in NYC to visit, this barely makes a dent. However, using apps like TimeOut or Yelp are a great way to see what cool places are near you. Now, go browse Skyscanner until you find cheap flights! Anyone got a trip to NYC booked?
