This morning I booked a plane ticket to New York!!! I've never been to NYC, unless you count a trip I don't remember when I was a toddler, or a layover at JFK when I was fifteen. The city has been tops on my list of places to go just because I'm interested - not to visit family or friends. This is the first time in my life I've had the funds and vacation time to do that kind of travel.
My best friend from college, Emily, volunteered to go with me and even used her own frequent stay points for our hotel. Em and I haven't spent a real stretch of time together in years, so that's great enough in itself, but I can hardly believe I'm actually going to the most famous city in the world!

We'll only have two full days in NYC, so I'm not going to attempt to do everything this trip, but I welcome suggestions for must-sees, must-dos, and must-eats! We definitely want to see at least one show (maybe Newsies), and I'm trying to get us Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tickets. I also think the Circle Line tour would be a good way to see a lot of major sights in a short time. I know it's uncool to do really touristy things, but I don't know how you avoid that unless you spend months there. Other than that, I'm pretty open!
