19 Cheap & Free Things to do in New York City

When visiting New York City it’s easy to get overwhelmed at the prospect of what to do, especially as a budget traveller! NYC is hardly known for being a cheap city. But after visiting twice, for under $25usd/day (not including accomodation-that was about $70usd/night) for both of us to eat, drink and enjoy our days, we realized we found quite a few budget options! Budget travel tip: Get an unlimited Metrocard. They sell 7 and…

My Favourite Photos in New York City

Weve visited New York City twice now. Once in the fall of 2015, and again in the fall of 2016. We quickly fell in love with the city, and made it a mission to see as much of it as we could. During that mission I took a TON of photos. I couldn’t just let the, hide away in a folder on my computer, so I decided to compile a few of my favourites here!…

Free Food Tour of Greenwich Village, NYC

After our walking tour of Central Park went so well, we decided to search FreeToursByFoot for another tour to fit into our free day. There were 2 the fit the bill.. a graffiti walk around Harlem, or a food tour of Greenwich Village. As much as I like seeing street art, food tends to always swing the vote for us! By the time I booked, there was only one spot left on the tour.. So…

Halloween on the Road

Halloween, 2015. When most kids are getting costumes on and preparing for trick or treating, we’re doing things a little different! We were supposed to head to Patriots Point, a military museum in Charleston. But, because we value sleep more than we do keeping a schedule, we didn’t get moving early enough to make it there. Funny how that happens! First things first, we kicked the day off with a Scary Pancake from IHOP! They…

Roadtrip Day 5: Museum of Natural History

Today was a super rainy day, so it’s a good thing our plan was to stay indoors at the American Museum of Natural History all day! Since we only brought sandals with us, our feet were pretty soaked by the time we got from the subway station to the entrance, though! Plenty of time to dry off while we wandered the museum. As soon as we walked in I was taken back to watching Night…

Roadtrip Day 3: Times Square, NYC

  Heading into day 3 of walking NYC and I’m thankful I brought 2 pairs of sandals! My feet are pretty achy, and I’ve been substituting each day so I don’t get blisters. Had to use a bit  of ducttape to protect a couple spots though! Europan Bakery It’s crazy how much those subway tunnels can turn you around! I always feel disoriented when we get back on the street. It always takes a couple…

Dreams Coming True: Day 1 in New York City

For our first day we decided to do something pretty typical… Figure out public transit and go see the Statue of Liberty! Had to stop for a REAL New York City pretzel first, though! Seth loves pretzels, so it was pretty lucky that this was the first stand we saw when we walked out of Penn Station!
