In just 4 weeks – 2 days, I’ll be NYC-bound to visit this guy! Oh yeah…and his mom and dad too, of course. SO excited. We were supposed to go visit last November, but the trip fell through due to other half’s work tyrants, so we just finally reschedule and I’m super pumped. Besides toting around darling nephew KP, I’m also planning on:
- seeing “Sleep No More,” an immersive, interactive modern version of MacBeth,
- hitting up The Russian Tea Room,
- seeing a musical…undecided as to which one yet,
- going back to The Met – I didn’t get my fill last time!
- going to Late Night With Seth Meyers, if I can be lucky enough to score tix,
- …and taking a dance class?
I don’t know about the dance class though…I’m kind of chicken. I haven’t been to any dance class in a few months, and I spend so much time right now training the “opposite” of my dance muscles – strength not flexibility, functional movement and not artistry – that I’m afraid of looking like a complete disaster. But then part of me thinks “when in Rome….” Anyway, to be determined.
The other exciting bit is that we’re doing 4 days in NYC and then hopping on the Amtrak train to go to Washington, D.C., which is completely new for me! Anyone have any “must do” or “don’t waste your time” recommendations for activities, restaurants, monuments, tours, etc? I’m totally flying blind on this one.
I’m also planning to fit in some running in both locations. I love tourist running. It’s a great way to get your bearings around a city, and cover a bit more ground and skyline than while walking. Any great routes to suggest? We’re staying in Midtown Manhattan in NYC and Embassy Row/Dupont Circle area in D.C.
Aaaaaand lastly, if you check out our Pinterest, I’ve added a new board for NYC vacation clothing ideas. I figure that, in the city of SATC and Fashion Week and all that, I should at least make an effort to be cute and a little trendy. If you’ve got a great spot for fashion advice or a fav magazine or something, leave me a link for inspiration!
