Hi Everyone!

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3

We began our final day in New York, by grabbing Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and a last visit to CVS to stock up on things we can’t buy in the UK. We then checked out of the hotel and they held our bags in a room as our flight wasn’t until later on in the evening.

It was another lovely day in the city, we walked to Fifth Avenue and had a wander around New York Public Library, it’s nice to come here and escape the noise from the city. Last time I visited here The Rose Main Reading Room was being renovated, but this time it was open again.

We then walked to Rockefeller Center to get tickets for Top of the Rock – The next available time was in the afternoon so we decided to walk down to Madison Square Park and come back to Rockefeller later. Along our way we walked slowly taking in the atmosphere of the city, stopping in shops every now and then.

Once we got to Madison Square Park, obviously we had to stop for Shake Shack – Their milkshakes are my favourite – I got the Salted Caramel flavour. Even though the city now has multiple locations, I think Madison Square Park is the best as you can sit and eat outside.

After lunch we then walked back up to Rockefeller Center – Knowing this would be our last thing to do before walking back to the hotel and getting a taxi to the airport – We spent quite some time taking in the views of the city.

Once back at the hotel we retrieved our bags and they kindly got us a taxi to JFK. We arrived fairly early and had lots of time to sit and reflect on the holiday. We had a fantastic time and I love New York even more!
If you are planning a city break to New York I would definitely recommend going for 4/5 days minimum, last time we went for three full days and it was a very jam packed trip. It is nice to be able to freely explore and have a rough itinerary, rather than rushing around trying to fit in everything you want to see.
I hope you have enjoyed reading what we did each day of the trip. Feel free to leave a comment below or if you would like to know more about anything mentioned in my blog.
Thanks for reading!
