The Best of New york

I’ve been wanting to do a post for a while now on my recent trip to New York, but wanted to make sure that I had everything in it that I wanted you to know. If you are planning a trip to NYC, then I am so glad you are reading this. This was probably one of the Best trips I’ve taken recently , just for the simple fact I was with my kids. We had an ultimate blast and can’t wait to get back. 

Even though I have been before, it seems each time you go back to the same destination , there is always something new to see , or just new things to do. We took in many sights, museums, ate amazing food, went to great Broadway shows , and I wish I could fit all my amazing photos in to this one post. I just wanted to give you some insight of some great things to do and see if you have a chance to visit. 

I’m going to start with food. Who doesn’t love taking in the great food NYC has to offer. Everywhere you turn, there is food, and it’s good food. We ate at so many amazing places, by I just can’t fit them all in to my post. I have to start out with the amazing STK Steakhouse.  If you ever have a chance to go, you need to. It’s got a great vibrant atmosphere , and the food is divine. It’s a great place to take the family. Rolling into little Italy, we couldn’t make our minds up on where we wanted to eat. Every little place looks adorable. After about 30 minutes, we decided on Cafe Napoli. I’m so glad we did! The wait staff was remarkable, and did I mention they have the best Tortellini Romano? Of course now I’m going to move on to where we stayed. We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria. The hotel was just fabulous, and the service was remarkable. The rooms are spacious, and they have the best restaurants inside , including the Bull and Bear Prime Steakhouse. The breakfast there is amazing . My daughter and I even had afternoon tea at Lachine. They are so accommodating. I had to venture over to TriBeCa one day to take in some shopping and sights. I have to race about the TriBeCa spa of tranquility. This spa was voted one of the best spas around the globe, and I can see why. It was adorable. The staff was wonderful, and their services were amazing. The European facial  and their signature massage was the ultimate. TriBeCa is lovely as well. I can’t cover everything we seen, because we did ALOT! Central Park is always a gorgeous place to visit or take a walk. The day we visited, you couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful scenery. It’s always wonderful to visit this an amazing city, and have the ultimate fun. If you ever have a small weekend or a vacation coming up, NYC is a great get away.
