Travel Thursday: My First Visit to NYC

In January after we got engaged, one of my oldest friends (I've known her since I was three!) came out to PA to try on bridesmaid dresses and do wedding stuff. 


Since we were so close to NYC, we decided to make a trip. We went on Bolt Bus, which allowed us to go for super cheap, like $20 round trip. Sarah has friends that live there so we hung out with them for the day and we did things like go to the top of the Empire State Building.

Where we had great views of the city. It's somewhere Alan wanted to go with me and he refused when we made our own trip later that summer. Silly guy!

We also hung out at Central Park, although we didn't have time for skating.

I got to sit in my favorite chair ay Macy's.

And see Times Square at night.

We also rode outside on the free ferry to Staten Island...in the winter. While the photos were spectacular, it's not something I recommend because it was COLD!

I only had one day there for my first trip, so we tried to pack as much as we could into it. A lot of people I know say that New York has this magical quality about it, and it does. It is definitely somewhere I would like to visit again. However, it's not London, which holds a special place in my heart. One of these days I will tell you more about my love for that city...but you'll have to stay tuned to find out when!
