NYC Sample Vacation with the Family

We came to NYC for 5 days from 22nd Oct. We were really lucky with the weather; mild, sunny days and just a few days after we left there was a big snowfall! We hadn't been to the USA before and New York exceeded all our expectations.

We had a really sunny day at the top of the Empire State Building. We took the stairs to the crown of the Statue of Liberty just before it closed for refurbishment. We saw two great Broadway shows - Chigago and the Jersey Boys. We found some great places to eat on Restaurant row. We did MOMA and the Guggenheim; Central Park carriage ride; visited Schwartz toy shop; Top of the Rock and we walked almost everywhere, which gave us a great feel for the city.

The clothes are so much cheaper than in England. We bought lots of designer stuff at Macy's for a fraction of the price back in the UK.

My wife loved the female traffic cops shouting and whistling at all the cars and cabs. Times Square was an explosion of activity - a great place to be and we had a brilliant hotel on West 43rd Street/8th Avenue, ideally located.

The experience was tremendous and we loved every minute of it!!!
