Since both of the other trips we've taken there have been at Christmas, it's going to be nice to be there with out that extra hustle and bustle of the holidays and enjoy the fall weather!
So, what's new on our list of things to do this trip?
The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour
This picture is the closest John and I have gotten to the Statue of Liberty. We're really hoping that the line to do this tour is not wrapped completely around Battery Park like it has been on our previous visits. This is something I'd love to do and it's on our list if the line isn't ridiculous!
Can you believe we've never walked Central Park? It's always so flipping cold when we're there so being outside just isn't exactly fun! I'm looking forward to the nice weather and being able to actually enjoy being outside. I know Central Park is big, but I'm really looking forward to just taking a leisurely stroll around the park :)
Visit the Grimaldi's Pizza under the Brooklyn Bridge
This is one thing that we've always been told to do, yet haven't done it. We love the Lombardi's pizza in NY and it's easier to get to so we've always just eaten there. I've heard the pizza is excellent here and the atmosphere under the Brooklyn Bridge is awesome so we want to try this out.
Visit the Today Show
John isn't quite on board with this yet, but I really hope I can get him to agree :) I haven't really looked in to this much yet, but I'm hoping they tell in advance if anyone special is going to be on the show so we can decide which day to go. Anyone have suggestions on the best way to go about this?
And the Oldies but Goodies on our list:
Top of the Rock
China Town and 17 Wo-Hop
(this is a must for us because this is where we ate right after we got engaged! Classy, I know ;) ha)
Little Italy and rainbow cookies
We'll be visiting John's grandparents on his mom's side atleast 1 day while we're there as well as having dinner with John's dad side of the family on Friday night and then of course, his cousins wedding on Saturday night, the whole reason we're going!
I'm so excited to be back in our favorite city!
