Where Else Should I Go While I Am In New York?

Postby Lutz » Sun Nov 06, 2016 4:49 pm

Hi,

I'll be going to the Princeton University in late May for a graduation ceremony of my friend.

While I am there, I want to be in New York for 2 or 3 days.

So I'll have another 3 days, but I don't know which city is the most convenient and most interesting to go to, as this is the first time I visit America.

Could you pls suggest the route for me?

Thank you

ANSWER: Hi Lee,

I'd be delighted to help.  Before I sketch something out that would work best for you, it would be helpful to know a few things about you.  

-How old are you?

-Are you female or male(Lee could be either)

-What are your interests?  Please be specific.  Do you like art, music(what kind) etc.

-Are you specifically interested in just tourist attractions.

-You mentioned that you'll 'be in New York for 2-3 days.  I assume you'll need a place to sleep in NYC?

-Do you mean that you'll have an 'additional' 3 days to go to another city other than New York and would like to know which city is closest to Princeton.

-What is your budget?

Let me know alittle more about you, and we'll start planning your trip to NYC!  You are going to love it!

Jill

Hi, our family - including a two-year-old boy, a grandmother, a brother and my wife - will go together.

We had thought that maybe we will visit New York, Princeton and then Washington DC. Do you think it is viable in terms of transport? I have a full UK driving licence but have never driven in the US before, so I don't know if one can drive safely there.

We are primarily interested in famous tourist attractions like the Liberty Statue, White House, etc.

Thank you.

Where Else Should I Go While I Am In New York?

Hi,

Thanks for the Clarification.

I assume that you are flying into Kennedy Airport in New York City first?  When you land, you could easily go directly to New York City and spend your first few days there followed by Princeton.  (Click here for transportation from Kennedy airport to New York City:  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/kennedy-airport.html.)  If you want to go to Washington, DC after Princeton, the most time efficient and least costly would be to rent a car, especially given that there are 5 of you.  Taking a bus or a train would be costly given that you'd have 5 tickets to purchase.  Also, traveling with a 2 year old(I've done it), you would benefit from the most efficient way possible.  When you are finished in Washington, you could drive back to Kennedy and drop the car off, OR, you could fly out of Washington and go home.  However, flying in and out of different airports often adds money to your tickets.  I've driven from New York to Washington many, many times(my sister use to live there) and, depending on traffic, it took about 5 hours or so.  Haven't made the trip from Princeton.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lodging:  Given that there are 5 of you, a suite hotel or an apartment might work out better for you.  Especially with a young child, you'll have access to and the convenience of a kitchen.  this will also allow you to save money on food.  Eat certain meals and home and treat yourself to some good restaurants with the money you'll save.  Here are some page to review for suitable accommodations:

Suites:  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/suite-hotels.html

Vacation Rental Apartments:   http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/new-york-city-vacation-rentals.html

Rental of a timeshare:  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/time-share-rentals.html

Really on a budget?  Check out renting rooms at colleges(go to bottom of page): http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/new-york-city-hotel-deals.html

If you prefer a traditional type hotel, check out this page of very affordable places: http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/cheap-hotels-in-new-york-city.htm

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tourist Attractions:

Many people don't realize how exhausting New York City can be.  There is SO much to see and do, so my advise is to pace yourself.  Consider doing one attraction in the morning, go back to your room to rest, and do another in the afternoon.

With 3 days, I'd recommend:

1)  The Empire State Building OR an even prettier view(you'll see Central Park) with less lines is Top of the Rock.  Check our information and discounts here:http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/empire-state-building.htmlhttp://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/top-of-the-rock.html

2) Statue of Liberty:  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/statue-of-liberty-national-monument.html

3)  A Broadway Show is a must.  However, I wouldn't recommend it with a child.  If his grandmother will babysit, go!  If you need a recommendation, I'd be happy to give it to you.  Otherwise, take the family to see the Gazillion Bubble Show, your son will love it.  Let's face it, if he is happy, so will you be:>  Another great show for families is The Lion King.  If you go, get Orchestra Seats, first 6 rows, preferably on the aisle, as the animals will walk right past you.  Click here for ideas on how to save on theater tickets.  There are many.  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/discount-broadway-theater-tickets.html

4)  One great restaurant.  New York City is home to some of THE best restaurants in the world.  You should treat yourself to at least one great meal.  There are many TOP restaurants that offer deals.  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/restaurant-discounts.html

5) Take a general tour on New York City:  Given that you will only be in NYC for a few days, taking a basic bus tour will give you an overall view of the city.  I do this in every new city that I visit.  Here are some options  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/new-york-city-bus-tours.html

6)  New York City is home to tons of museums.  The most visited is probably the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  It's massive.  If you go, plan to visit for a morning.  Sign up for one of their free 1-hour general tours.  It will give you a taste of the museums.  Here's a listing of museums and discount options :http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/new-york-city-museums.html

7)  It might also be fun to be in a TV show audience.  Send away for tickets now.  They are free.  We are seeing Jimmy Fallon again in a week or so.  http://www.nyc-visitor-discounts.com/free-tv-show-tickets.html.  Lots of top shows are filmed here.

----------------------------

There's a first stab at information.  Review it and see what other questions you have!  I'm happy to provide more answers!

All the best,

Jill
