Gah! I can’t believe we are close to the middle of the year already, and I have yet to go to New York City. It is on my “To Travel” list as it is an easy travel destination. Just over five hours in a car, and I would be there, but it just hasn’t worked out yet.
I’ve never been to New York City even though I have lived on the East Coast my entire life, but my husband has. He swears that it won’t be the travel destination that I am thinking it will be, but I just want to see it once, do the tourist thing, and mark it off my list. Seeing the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Central Park, and the Empire State Building in person, just to say I did is my main driver. Bucket list worthy to most, but I will only go to New York in the summer. No snowy tundra will ever be on my bucket list.
I’m steadily watching for a Groupon, or a deal on lodging, but haven’t had any luck of yet. To spend a weekend in a busy city rather than at the beach for more than five hundred dollars just doesn’t sit well with me, so I wait. Hopefully I can find something lower price and finally make the trip.
