I'm Off to the Big Apple!

Headed to the Big Apple!

For her graduation present from high school, my daughter wanted to go to New York City.  Her every wish is my command!  So tomorrow morning we are off to the big city.  We have never been to New York, and we are VERY excited.  We are from the south....this is going to be like "Ma and Pa Kettle go to New York"!  We may be country bumpkins, but we know how to have fun.  We have tickets to shows and tours and have a few restaurants picked out.  Did I say that we are VERY excited???  The packing is done, and like my father always advised, we are "takin' twice as much money and half as many clothes!"  We are ready!

I'll be reporting here on my blog from time to time if I can, and let you know what we are up to.  How about leaving me some comments with your suggestions?  I am sure that many of you have already been to the big city, and have your favorite restaurants and spots that you love.  If you have a suggestion, please leave me a comment.  I have planned and planned, but I am sure that there is something that I haven't thought about.  What are your suggestions?

Have fun! We really enjoyed the on and off open air bus tours, Magnolias cupcakes are a big hit. (there is now one in Rockefeller Center), If your looking for a break, the Staten Island Ferry is a free boat ride right near the Statue of Liberty. You can take it over to Staten Island and then come right back. Time it to see the sunset and Manhattan lights in the same trip! Dinner and Canoli's in little Italy or a purse in China town... (ride the subway or take the bus tour - it's a long walk!) Scholastic offices are around that area somewhere too!

Jason, thanks so much! I just mentioned Magnolia's cupcakes and my daughter had heard of it from the movies! We already have plans to go to Little Italy and eat...we soooo love Italian food! Thanks for your tips. I'll try to post a little something each night to let everyone know what we are up to!

Wow - how exciting! Have lots of fun. New York is on my "too see" list. I might get there in 20 years time!
