The annual holiday season is coming up, and now is the time to start looking at travel plans and trip itineraries. Many people will be flying to New York City either to visit family, friends or just to see the lights in front of Rockefeller Center or watch the ball drop New Years Eve in Times Square. Going with a plan is the best option when traveling anywhere, but NYC can be overwhelming. Here are a few travel guide tips to help you build your calendar, giving you more energy to enjoy your time abroad and less stress figuring out where to go and what to do and eat.
JetBlue is an excellent choice when browsing flights to and from NYC. Being centrally located in the big apple is a primary reason why you’ll easily find almost 20 flights each day traveling to almost 100 US cities landing and departing in all three major airports (LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark). Kimpton’s Ink48 is a great hotel to stay at, particularly because they offer free bike rentals. Anyone who isn’t an NYC native should be forewarned that NY is much easier to get around by walking, biking, and subway rather than by car or bus. Also, being located on the west side of the city, you’ll have rapid access to New Jersey and the numerous nearby locations for scenic Hudson River hiking and scenery.
The holidays always bring a hovering fear of overeating and unhealthy weight gain. Curb that unnecessary stress by planning two or three times a week attending a local group workout class. 305 Fitness offers dance-cardio classes, IMAXShift is an indoor cycling studio, and the Yoga lover will find an intense but satisfying endorphin rush with a hip-hop Vinyasa class at Y7 Studio every Wednesday and Sunday.
