For some reason ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to see New York City at Christmas time. So December of 2017 I decided I was going to take a long weekend and visit, just to scratch it off my list. It was very crowded, but I will say that I really enjoyed the trip. Everything was lit up with Christmas lights, and it snowed the whole time I was there. Walking around the city definitely put me in the Christmas mood.
I thought I was going to freeze to death taking the ferry across the harbor to see the statue of liberty, but I am definitely glad i did it! Since I had never been to New York I figured I had to see the Statue of liberty just to say i saw it.
If you decide to plan a trip to New York I suggest you budget for it because I definitely didn’t! I booked a room on Wall Street and figured since I was only going to be there for three days it wouldn’t hurt my bank account. I had always heard New York was expensive but good grief! With what I spent that weekend I probably could have booked a nice beachfront vacation. Still, it was a place I always wanted to visit and if I had to go back, I still would go!
