A weekend guide to NYC!

Two weeks ago I visited NYC for a little work and a little play! I always love getting back to New York City and always find so much inspiration when I’m there. I also always find lots of great food, charming spots and great hotels! I always use booking.com to find the best hotel deals. I usually stay in different spots depending on what area of the city my work is in. Booking.com helps me find the best deals no matter what area I need to stay You can find $30 off your next getaway HERE! I put together a little NYC roundup video of our visit as well as all my favorite current spots in the city! I did my best to roundup spots in a variety of locations because as you know, NYC isn’t the tiniest place. I always use Lyft in NYC and home in Chicago to get around. I find it’s the most reliable and best priced rideshare! I use my time in transit to catch up on emails so it’s always important to be to have a ride I can count on!

Do you have favorite New York City spots!? I’d love to add them to my list!

Take the Brooklyn Ferry!
It’s A great way to see the view and cruise the River for a few minutes for not much money!

Go shopping in SOHO! The best shopping in the city in my opinion!

Walk the Highline! A perfect thing to do on a beautiful day! Grab a coffee and enjoy an afternoon stroll.

Until next time, NYC!
