New York

Planning a trip to New York City and other destinations in the Empire State? You’ve come to the right place! This is where you can find the best New York travel tips, fun guides, and all about our own experiences.

Growing up in New England, we’ve made so many trips to New York City and the surrounding areas. Lake George was a popular summer trip for Jake, and Brigitte lived right on the Massachusetts NY border.

As full-time travelers now, we still take many flights home through NYC to see family and friends. From there, we either spend a few days in New York City or rent a car to explore around the state.

On our last New York trip we walked the High Line in Manhattan, rode the Staten Island Ferry, and had a picnic on Little Island. We even took an adventure to Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood and strolled over the famous Brooklyn Bridge!

Check out all our New York guides for tips from our own travels. It won’t be long until we’re back, so stay tuned!

Money: The US Dollar is used throughout the United States.

Location: New York is located in the northeastern USA. It borders Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Vermont.

Seasons: Something we love about this area of the U.S. is getting all four seasons! The most popular time to visit is during the warm months of summer, and fall for the changing of the leaves. You can also do some skiing around the state in the winter months.
