There may be something cool about going alternative when it comes to visiting New York City. But if you’re only there for the weekend, of course, you’re going want to do the iconic sights. If you’ve never been to NYC before, prepare to be blown away by a city that never sleeps. Immortalized in film and television, New York City is a destination for the bucket list. There is a world class shopping and legendary architecture. You’ll be privy to eclectic street style and electrifying nightlife. NYC is a wonderful way to spend a whimsical few days of international travel. Here are a few suggestions on what to do if you find yourself in New York for one wonderful weekend.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
We may not have enough money to buy a two-carat diamond ring at Tiffany & Co., but that doesn’t mean we can’t make like Holly Golightly and take a little peek. The flagship store on Fifth Avenue is super friendly and certainly open to browsing. Take a photo outside the iconic store, underneath the bronze figure of Atlas supporting a clock. The window displays are always magical, so be sure to take some time to absorb the creative displays. If you want a memento and a little blue bag, you can buy an iconic heart key ring for about $140. You might not be able to get breakfast at Tiffany’s, but you can certainly grab something nice close by. Trump Tower has a coffee bar where you can buy a drink and pastry and then make like the film.
Horse And Carriage through Central Park
If you’ve saved up a few dollars, one of the most romantic ways to see the city is by taking a horse and carriage ride through Central Park. Find your carriage between 5th and 6th Avenue. A walk up ride will cost about $110. Just a little less than that keyring! You’ll be taken on a magical old-fashioned 45-minute journey through Manhattan’s most iconic park. You’ll travel through picturesque trails and see statues of William Shakespeare and Alice in Wonderland. You’ll see the ancient Obelisk, the Blockhouse, Strawberry Fields and the Central Park Carousel. It’s a wonderful adventure not to be missed.
Helicopter Ride Over The City
It’s worth the spend to take one of the many exhilarating helicopter rides in NYC for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A helicopter ride will give you the most breathtaking of aerial views. You’ll see the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge from a bird’s eye view. You’ll get close to the Chrysler Building, Greenwich Village, and the Rockefeller Centre at never before seen angles. It’s a luxury tour but well worth the expenditure for the ultimate flying experience.
Cronut and Movies
After an action-packed day in this irresistible city, head to the infamous Dominique Ansel Bakery on 189 Spring Street. Here you’ll discover a delicious batch of Cronut pastries. This sugary glazed treat will blow your mind. Take your treats back to your hotel room, put on fluffy bathrobes, rent out some classic Manhattan movies and settle down for the night. 42nd Street and West Side Story spring to mind.
