10 things to do in New York

New York is one of my favourite cities in the world. I have had two awesome experiences and definitely want to go back to the big apple one day. There is so much that you can do when you're there and so many incredible sights to see.
I wanted to share some of the amazing things that you can do in New York. I have only chosen 10 tourist hot spots for you to explore, however, there is so much to see and do that it's worth doing your research. 


  1. Times Square 
  2. Brooklyn Bridge
  3. Statue of liberty and liberty island 
  4. Rockefeller Centre
  5. Empire State Building 
  6. Grand Central Terminal 
  7. American Museum of Natural History 
  8. Central Park 
  9. Yankee Stadium 
  10. Bronx Zoo 
I haven't placed them on here, however, New York is filled with amazing restaurants and bars. I thoroughly loved the shopping experience - surprise surprise, so I would suggest if that's what you're planning to go for, then take plenty of money. I think I spent a mini fortune on clothes, beauty, food and sightseeing. It was definitely worth saving for. 

I travelled at Christmas and in the summer and both times have their individual benefits and perks. I also booked a few tours which were great as they shared New York culture and some of the fun aspects of such a renown city - for example, I was able to see where some of the big films and series were created such as Home Alone 2, Friends and Sex and the city. 

When I travelled at Christmas time, I stayed on 3rd Avenue which isn't a bad location and not too far from all the main attractions. However, when I travelled in the summer, I stayed at the New Yorker Hotel and this was situated on 5th Avenue which was a hot spot for tourists because it is a 5 minute walk from Times Square. 

At Christmas I took £500 spending money which lasted me five days, and in the summer I took £700 which lasted me all week and this was three meals per day, all the tourist costs and also shopping. I think if you're really wanting to splash out, I would take more. Please remember that you cannot drink unless you're 21! 

I hope you found this small review helpful. New York is definitely a city worth visiting and I would fly back tomorrow if I could.
