New York City
. Today I decided I’d write about my most recent holiday to New York in December. I still cannot believe I went as it is everybody’s dream to be able to do what I did. I am so thankful for it and I definitely recommend going if you are able to! It truly is magical.
One of the first tourist attractions we found ourselves at was the 9/11 memorial. We had bought the New Yorker Pass which allowed us into certain tourist attractions with pre-bought tickets. We queued for a while – around an hour – to get into the museum. It was well worth the wait.
Our next venture was to the Statue of Liberty. Our passes, unfortunately, didn’t allow us onto Staten island but we able to get a boat that circled it. Due to it being winter, there were extremely ice winds this day. This made it so funny as we were able to stand on the outside of the boat to take pictures whilst the boat was swaying side to side from the wind so we found it hard to stay balanced whilst taking photos.
Next stop: Shopping at Macy’s. All the Christmas decorations looked incredible. I didn’t realise how big Macys was until we had a look, the place is massive like a maze but they do have such good deals on pretty much everything in the store at Christmas.
This was probably my favourite part of the week. We went ice skating outside the Rockefeller centre. I recommend going VIP as we were able to hop on and off the ice to get a hot drink and cookies – as many as we wanted!
