A Tourist in NYC.

There are endless events, historical places, and tons of touristy spots that draw millions of people and travelers to New York City every year. As I’ve mentioned before, we live quite close to New York and are very fortunate that we can drive down to the city when we feel like it. And trust me, we take full advantage of that! In fact, I find myself randomly in New York for various reasons all the time but I’ve never actually went for the specific reason of visiting the touristy spots. There are millions of photos floating around of these tourist places, but it’s just not the same as seeing them in person; the chills you get walking on tragic ground, the wonderment going through your head as you observe pieces of history right in front of you, or the adrenaline that runs through you as you reach high heights. They are famous or popular for a reason so I decided to become a tourist in NYC. I never shared any snapshots of scenic spots in the Big Apple, so I thought now would be a good time to remember what it was like when we could go out and mingle among hoards of people 😉

Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
