Before I share my list, I want to say “HI” to everyone that is hopping over from Johannah’s blog. I would like to say a huge Thank You to Johannah for asking me to be apart of her amazing Meet & Greet Series.
Next week we’ll be in New York City and for the last two months I’ve been putting together our list of must-do items.
ONE – Statue Of Liberty
When you think of New York City the first thing that pops into everyone’s head is the Statue of Liberty. The day after we booked our flight and hotel I went online and bought our tickets for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. I’ve never been to Ellis Island!
TWO – Empire State Building
I’m also looking forward to going to the Empire State Building. My mom is terrified of heights but this is one place you have to go to no matter what you are afraid of. The views from the 86th-floor observation deck are amazing!
THREE – Central Park Zoo
I’ve never been to the Central Park Zoo and I’d love to take the girls. The zoo is less than a 10-minute walk for us and we’ll definitely be going there!
We love museums! The American Museum of Natural History is one of my favorite museums. They’ve got several great exhibitions opened currently. The girls will be excited to see all of the different dinosaur fossils.
FIVE – World Trade Center Memorial
The girls have learned about 9-11 at school and have asked to go visit the memorial and go to the museum. When we went to the memorial last year I was overcome with so many emotions. I can still remember everything about that day like it was yesterday.
SIX – Central Park
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Central Park. I can’t wait to walk around the park with the girls and show them where Danny proposed to me. If we have time I would love to go ice skating at the Wollman Rink.
SEVEN – Time Square
The very first time we went to NYC we stayed in Time Square. I was shocked to see all of the bright lights and billboards. I will say seeing Time Square in person is so amazing! I love to just stand around and people watch.
EIGHT – Today Show / Rockefeller Center
If you are like me and watch the Today Show every day then you know how fun it would be to be on the Today Show plaza. FYI…If you want to be on TV you have to be in line at 5am! I know that is crazy but it’s so worth it! I hope the weather is good next week because I don’t want to stand in the rain!
This is my list but believe me there are so many things to do in NYC. You could spend an entire week in NYC and still not see everything and you would probably spend a small fortune!
