The City That Never Sleeps! | Part 2

By Mellissa McGrath - 20:15:00

Here is Part 2 of my New York adventure, looking back makes me want to do it all over again! It's true this is the city that never sleeps,  24 hours a day it has the most stunning views and when the lights are on and your taking in your surroundings the feeling is like no other! 

We went on a night time bus tour, taking us around Soho, Little Italy, China Town and Brookyln! The city and bridges lit up was amazing..

Times Square - From theatre to shopping to food, it was just like what you see on TV, I loved walking around and taking in all the atmosphere!


There was so many things to do on an evening to get away from the heat and to relax after a long day! A few things we seen were Wicked, Les Miserables and a Liberty basketball game and a tour at Madison Square Garden!  I loved Broadway, I knew it would be so interesting for me with loving performing so much but I was honestly amazed. It was crazy how many theatres there were and the talent that you seen on a daily basis! Especially when watching Wicked (I even cried!) it was like my dream, the performers were flawless, I would recommend anyone to go and see it we loved it!

A little tip: we got the seats for wicked in the middle row at the end in the front mezzanine, they were a little expensive but not as much as a lot were and the seats were the perfect view! Also book beforehand for this show, it is very hard to get a ticket when your there luckily we had ours!


The Statue of Liberty! - We even got to touch her - cool right?! ;)

The 9/11 memorial & museum - It was breathtaking seeing the world trade center tribute and remembering all the lives that were lost on that unforgettable day.

There is so much to do in New York, these are only a few of the things we got up too on our trip! We went on lots more tours, museums, Madam Tussauds, The Ride and many more... But like I said on my last trip get the New York Pass, it was amazing and gave you entry into all main attractions, including everything you've seen and loads more!

I feel so thankful I got the opportunity to go here and see such an amazing place, the feeling you have when your walking around and the memories I got to make were indescribable! Thank you James for such an unforgettable 21st birthday present, I can't thank you enough!

I hope you enjoyed these posts showing you some moments from my trip, watch out for a new post coming very soon on my hints, tips and recommendations for a first timer in New York City!

If you have the opportunity, visit New York it is full of magic and bigger, brighter things, not just the buildings! It gave me inspiration and was a place where anything seems possible...
