In March of this year, I know this is a long time over due, my mom and I went to New York City for the weekend! It was my first time and it was seriously amazing!
We did all of the tourist attractions you can think of, starting with a ferry ride out to the Statue of Liberty. I would totally recommend this, if not for Lady Liberty, then for the view from the boat! We didn't get to go inside of her crown, but seeing her up close and personal made you realize how huge she really is. (she looks tiny from land and photos never do her justice)

We wandered the streets and saw so many sights, including the 9/11 Freedom Tower, which was absolutely incredible!
Finished our first day off with some wine and a wonderful dinner!
The next day called for more wandering around and sight seeing, starting with the Empire State Building!
We continue to walk around the city and take in the sights before coming up on Central Park. Another iconic location to stop and have a casual lunch in the park at!
The fun didn't stop there, we made our way from lunch and drink in Central Park, to Time Square! Yes... We seriously did all of this (and all of this walking) in one day!
From Time Square, we didn't stop! We made our way over to the Top of the Rock and I think this was the best thing we did the whole time. Instead of paying to go to the top, we just went to a bar 5 floors lower and got a drink and got the same view! Can you beat that?!
Again, up top got really windy and we had a blast trying to make a selfie work out together!
A few more drinks were had here and then on to a different bar for dinner and one last drink before we started the trek back to where we were staying!
My main goals; Have an awesome girls weekend with my best friend (check) and get an NY hat in NY (check)
Seriosuly the greatest girls trip I could have asked for and probably my favorite trip I have ever taken to date! I know, it's no Europe, but my mom made this the best trip I could have ever asked for!
She's the best!
If you ever visit, be a tourist! You will not regret it!
