A Tourist in New York City

New York, New York Guide (B): A Tourist in New York City

I went into to full on tourist mode this weekend in New York City. There are so many things to do in the Big Apple, and I just never tire of visiting NYC! It was great to reconnect with my friend Kristin too.

This weekend I left about have the details of planning up to my vacation club, Dreamtrips, including where to stay. Generally, I stay in Midtown as it is most convenient to the theater and the US Open when it is in session, both of which I love. This time, however, my friend Kristin and I stayed downtown at the Conrad New York. The hotel was nice, staff friendly, and breakfast buffet good.

It was also extremely convenient to One World Tower, the 9/11 museum, battery park and other areas that I don’t get to visit often. After 8 hours of traveling and a 2-hour time change, I finally caught up with Kristin who had a much smoother trip from D.C. for a short rest before a lovely night out.

My favorite night-time activities in New York are rather tame…dinner and a show. We treated ourselves two nights in a row. On Friday night we saw Waitress which was quite clever and funny! We really enjoyed the acting, the set, and all the decorations in the theater entrance. It was a very uplifting performance. ......
