I am not going to lie, but I love love love New York City! The city is about 3-4 hours from Massachusetts and if I get the chance to go I take it. The best way I have found to travel to New York City is via a bus. It is cheaper than a train ticket and you also don’t have to worry about driving.
I personally go through First Choice Tours, but others have had success with the train too! Therefore, I do have to say I have never stayed in NYC, but it something I manifest daily. Similarly to my MA guide, it is a lot of food recommendations as I love to eat!

What To Do
- Central Park – It is beautiful in the Summer
- Dover Street Market – 160 Lexington Ave – For the fashionista
- Lafayette St – Has so many great shops and cafes
- Museum of Sex – 233 5th Ave – It gives you a different perspective on sex
- 9/11 Memorial – 180 Greenwich St – This will humble anyone and is worth going
- One World Observatory – 285 Fulton St – This. Is. A. Must. Stop.
I will say the absolute best way to travel throughout the city is walking or the subway. It is so much cheaper that way! The first couple of times I went I took the subway to get to SoHo, but at this point, I just walk the city.
I always recommend go to the furthest place first and make your way back to a specific location. For example, for the bus, we met at a specific time and spot. It just makes your experience less stressful. I would love know your favorite places to stay in NYC when you go there!
