TouristsI just love being a tourist in cities that I experience often but tend to take for granted until I have someone to share them with. We made sure to hit up all the best tourist spots and excursions for my Mom’s first trip the Big Apple. Here are a few of my favorite shots.

NY Public Library

Famous NY Public library.  In all my trips to NY I have never been inside.  This trip was no different by the time we arrived, they were closed. Next time!


Dylan’s famous candy bar.


Serendipity for Frozen Hot Chocolate.

M&Ms Store

The M&M’s store in Times Square

Lombardi's Pizza

Lombardi’s Pizza, the first pizzeria in America.

Dos Caminos

This is what a day of traveling and a tummy full of great Mexican food looks like.  Dos Caminos in Times Square

Pick a Bagel

Pick A Bagel in Downtown NY just across from the Freedom Tower has delicious authentic New York Bagels

The Ball Times Square

The Times Square Ball, of New Year’s Eve fame.

Lion King

No trip to NYC is complete without a Broadway show.  The Lion King was a great one for the whole family.
