Traveling has honestly become one of my favorite things to do. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to be able to travel more. (And luckily, I have a job that allows me the freedom to travel often). I’ve loved posting travel guides lately and thought it would be fun to share another one today.
(Be sure to check out my Philadelphia travel guide and St. Louis travel guide).
I recently took a quick trip to New York City. Although I’ve visited NYC dozens of times, this was one of my shortest trips. I only had 48 hours to really explore NYC. Two days might sound short, but I’m here to tell you that there’s TONS to explore in New York City in a short amount of time.
Here’s what to see, do and eat in New York City:
You all know how I feel about museums; they’re the best! Whenever I visit a new (or old) city, I always make sure to check out the museums, especially if there’s a cool new exhibit going on. And although I’ve been to NYC more times than I can count, I’ve never been to the Museum of the Moving Image (until recently!).
Since I’m such a huge Jim Henson fan, I knew I had to check out The Jim Henson Exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image during my trip to New York last month. I decided not to bring my DSLR camera on this trip (in an attempt to “live more in the moment”, something I’ve been doing a lot more of lately) but I did take a few pictures on my iPhone. So I thought it would be fun to share them with you all today.
Here are a few photos from the Museum of the Moving Image:
Before I head out on my next adventure (I’m heading to Disney World next week then I’m going on my first Disney Cruise on January 2), I wanted to give you guys a little “recap” of my last trip, to New York City. Although I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with New York City, I always have a blast there during the holiday season. I love getting to see all of the amazing Christmas decorations and holiday window displays throughout the city. I also love all the fun and festive winter activities there are to do! (I know it’s technically still fall but bear with me).
Here’s a little recap of my trip to New York City:
You guys, I’m SO excited because next week is CHRISTMAS! I feel like I’ve been in the Christmas spirit since late-October (which is when I put up my Christmas tree) and I can’t believe the big day is almost here. Christmas is my favorite holiday and this is definitely my favorite time of the year.
While I was in New York City two weeks ago I got to visit the “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” Louis Vuitton exhibition at the American Stock Exchange Building. The “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” exhibition first launched in 2015 at the Grand Palais in Paris and since then it’s made stops in Tokyo and Seoul. The exhibition, which is about roughly 80 percent the same as what was on display at the Paris original, tells the story of the brand’s 160-year history.
The Louis Vuitton “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” Exhibition in New York City is definitely a must see:
It’s no secret that I LOVE Christmas. And if you spend 0.001 seconds on my blog then you’d know I LOVE Disney too. So of course I get a little giddy when the two are combined! During the holidays I love going downtown and looking at the festive Christmas decor and fun holiday window displays. And although I’ve visited New York City during Christmastime before, I never get tired of seeing all of the amazing Christmas decorations throughout the city.
This year Saks Fifth Avenue’s holiday window displays paid tribute to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in honor of its 80th anniversary! Over my four and a half days in New York city I got to experience these marvelous window displays during the daytime and at night. I personally think they were gorgeous regardless but they were extra festive at night.
Saks Fifth Avenue really outdid themselves with these Snow White holiday window displays:
