Taking a Bite of the Big Apple!
Tomorrow we leave on our next adventure. We will be going to New York City for a full week. We have lots of adventures planned.
We arrive tomorrow evening where we will be staying at The Lotte. Below is our full itinery of things we will be doing. Let me know in the comments if you’ve been to NYC and if you have, what are some of your favorite things to do!
Tuesday: During the day – Private van tour of NYC. Evening – Phantom of the Opera. I’ve never seen this as it never really interested me. That being said, I’m looking forward to seeing it.
Wednesday: Tour of Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
Thursday: Tour of the Catacombs (morning) and Tour of Alexander Hamilton in Lower Manhattan (afternoon).
Friday: 9/11 Memorial and we are going to a cool Irish Pub called Neary’s for dinner. The husband plans to wear his Boston Scully cap and his long black trench coat ala Thomas Shelby (aka Cillian Murphy – my secret boyfriend) from Peaky Blinders.
Saturday: Tour of Soho, Little Italy and Chinatown. Then dinner at a restaurant purportedly once owned by someone in the Mafia called Park Side.
Sunday: Tour of the Met Museum and the Natural History Museum.
I’ve been to NYC once, but my husband has never really been as a tourist. The last time he was there was to pick up his dad’s body. His dad suffered a heart attack and had passed away while in NYC for work. We are also going with another couple – my husband’s cousin and his wife. We have dinner reservations made for every night with the idea that we can cancel if needed.
We come back next Monday. I’m going to try to blog while we are gone, but I’m not making any promises. Mostly because WordPress is weird and I won’t have my laptop with me.
Wow, you have a lot of cool stuff scheduled. I hope you have a great time. Lots to blog about.

Sounds like an awesome trip to me! We took our kids (ages 9-17) about 15 years ago and saw Phantom of the Opera but in the super-cheap seats (because poor planning plus 6 people = $$$). I love that you’ll get to see so much. The 9-11 memorial was in the process of being built when we were there. I hope to return some day.
This is the second time I will get to see the 9/11 memorial. It is an incredibly sober experience. Do your kids remember their trip to NYC?

They do remember, because we walked E V E R Y W H E R E.
I went to NYC in the 80s a few times. I had so much fun but didn’t see nearly enough.
This sounds like a great trip! NYC is on my bucket list, so I’m looking forward to your adventures!
