New York City Travel: The Return

Don’t you just love the return of something good? Like New York City travel!

It's New York City Travel. My family has been doing a NYC holiday trips for years, and it's back, baby! Check out the amazing things they did

Now, if you’ll go in the wayback machine with me, you’ll remember the annual NYC trips!

You know the story. Cassidy and Scarlet started doing annual New York City trips when she was not much older than a toddler. They took the city by storm for years, doing action-packed day trips. Then, that turned into overnights. First, one night. Then two! And somewhere along the line, right before COVID, they let Des join them too. Then they took some time off because of the pandemic, and now they’re back, baby! We always have a fun plan and this time, we all six went to a solstice party near New Haven last Sunday. Then, they drove to the train station to take the train into the city, and I took the babies back home to a cold and dark home. They spent three days having fun, and I spent that time working, wrapping presents, cleaning, and also rocking around the Christmas tree! We all got reunited and I got to hear their stories. Now, you can too.

Or at least SEE what they did. I’ll try to find links where I can. Enjoy!

New York City Travel: The Return:

This was their first trip to NYC.

And we have the sequel, now it’s a trilogy, big number four, and five gold rings too!

So to start, they always stay at the same hotel in Times Square. The people there really know them and helped them get to their Monday Night Magic show. That was the big show. Sometimes they do shows and sometimes Broadway plays. This show blew them away! The hotel is right in the middle of Times Square and has free cookies, good weekday rates, and a great breakfast too. It’s the Hampton Inn Times Square Central. One day I hope Cassidy will write a book of NYC travel hacks, just like we’ve accumulated some incredible Walt Disney World ones too. I only hear about this particular magic, but if you’re going to NYC anytime soon, I really trust Cassidy, Scarlet, and Des! They eat and visit great places, like The Color Factory. I want to go!

It’s an interactive and colorful art museum. Probably very Insta-friendlyl!

Scarlet has never had COVID, and Des had COVID and RSV, so my kids still heavily mask indoors, especially in NYC. And if you see them masking outdoors, that’s because it keeps faces warm.

One very New York City story is that they were in the city for the first and second nights of Hanukkah, and didn’t have menorahs or candles. Well, they were stopped in Bryant Park and Times Square on two separate occasions by people giving out free jelly donuts, menorahs, and candles, so that people could celebrate while traveling. I love that! I lit the menorah at home.

This was their setup:
