New York City Travel Guide

New York city is a fun and exciting city to visit. We love to visit Manhattan, both as a family and as couple. Although I have to be honest with you, we find it busy and chaotic at times, so we limit our visits to 2-3 days. It is only an hour flight for us, so that makes it easy to do.

New York City Travel Guide


New York City has a special place in our heart as Warren and I had our first romantic trip away together here. We stayed at the Plaza and it really was magical!


It's amazing to see the different cultures, the immense size, the speed and energy and the chaos yet organization of the city. It really is like no other city on earth. Each area has it's own distinct neighborhood that offers something unique.



There is something for everyone, attractions, shopping, the lights of Times Square, shopping, museums, shopping, Broadway shows, shopping, fine dining to street fairs. It is very hard to be bored in Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs and really everyone will find something that interests them.


You may ask when is the best time to go? There is always something going on in NYC, but if you are talking about weather then personally we like April/May, September/October or Christmas. We have been over a dozen times and I think we have been at every time of year. See our thoughts on NYC weather here.


There is so much to do in this amazing city. So make sure you do your research and plan your days, otherwise you may find you don't have enough time to do everything you were hoping for. This New York city travel guide is a good place to start!
