The ultimate guide to planning a trip to NYC

I have recently been planning my up coming trip to the Big Apple at the end of March and it has inspired me to write about the tips and tricks I’ve learnt that can help when planning a trip.

1. Write down a list of everywhere that you want to visit. We all know the iconic New York landmarks that you just can’t miss out on when visiting the city, so make a list of all the ones your interested in as well as any other places you’ve heard of and prioritise them.

Exploring Brooklyn is high on my list

2. Research, research, and research some more. New York is a huge place with so much more to offer than just the typical tourist attractions. Research all the best places to eat, the must-see museums, and quirky hidden gems. When you’ve trawled the internet, add any extra must-see places to your list.

3. Make an itinerary. My advice is to sit down with your laptop and a cup of coffee and plan out each day of your trip from start to finish. Remember to work out how you’ll travel to and from attractions.

Exploring central park is also on my list!

4. Don’t leave it until the last minute. Going to NYC is a trip of a lifetime so to get the most out of it make sure you’ve organised everything well in advance so when the trip rolls around you can enjoy every minute of it!

You Know New York, Do You Know York?

New York and York

Everyone knows New York, the biggest modern metroplis in the world, but do you know why it calls New ” York”?

New York

York is a city in England. In 1651, the Anglo-Dutch War broke out. British defeated the Netherlands in 1664, took control of the “New Amsterdam”. The homesick British soldiers gave the names of their hometowns to the settlements in the new land , New York  was one of them.

However, York is so different from New York. It is a city with a long history and rich contents. King George VI said“The history of York is the history of England.”

Travel in York

York is the biggest tourism city in England except London.

Historic buildings

There are many historic buildings in the city, the most famous one is the York Minster, which is the  largest medieval church in England. You can reach the top of the centre tower for a bird’s -eye view of the whole city. Besides, York Dungeons,National Railway Museum, and many other museums are so worth while to visit.
