The One Place on Earth Where I Love Being a Tourist


The Big Apple can still make my heart skip a beat.  No matter how many times I visit, I can always discover a new favorite restaurant, watering hole or just a great place to stroll. Whether it is Winter (most times), Summer, Spring or Fall, a long weekend in New York always makes my heart beat a little faster.

Take to the water the next time you're NYC and see the city from a totally new angle.

While planning your visit to New York, do yourself a favor and check out the National Park Service website. Book a tour of the Statue of Liberty AND Ellis Island. Both are fascinating ‘touristy’ outings that are worth your time and your dime.

The Statue of Liberty is 31 tons of copper awesomeness.

12 million immigrants have passed through halls of Ellis Island. Amazing artifacts inside!

From the Highline to your skyline, I got a serious thing for you, New York. Don’t ever change.

The High Line in Chelsea is vibrant all year round with colorful street art like this beauty.

  1. I could not agree with you more! Every time my feet hit those city streets it is a rebirth for my soul! We last visited this past November (Fall being my favorite time to go). We took a boat tour around the city, walked across the Brooklyn bridge in search of pizza (which did not disappoint), took in a play, and wandered around Central Park for hours. I leave a piece of my heart there every time… Thanks for sharing these amazing photos! 🙂
