So, this isn’t my usual sort of blog post, but I thought I would put this out there, as I would really love some travel advice!
Basically, in August one of my best friends is getting married in Las Vegas, and this means one thing: I will be visiting the States for the first time ever – I’m just a little bit excited!
With such long flight times, me and Lee decided to make the most of being in America and take a little trip to New York whilst we’re there. Neither of us have ever visited either New York or Vegas before, and there are a million things that all the guidebooks recommend doing, but, in my experience, the best advice doesn’t come from guidebooks but from the experiences of others – and so I’d love to hear from anybody who has spent time in Las Vegas or New York, and can recommend anywhere to go, things to do, places to eat.
We’ll be spending four days in New York, and so have a bit of time to do various things – provided we plan our time properly! We’re obviously going to be doing some of the typical touristy things – Ellis Island, Central Park, Times Square, Empire State building, but would love to mix this is with some ‘off the beat’, lesser known places. Anybody been there before (naybe a few times?) and found an amazing eatery, or a lovely, lesser-known park, bar or garden?
We have eight days in Las Vegas, but several of these will be spent on wedding preparation (Bridesmaids duties) and, of course, the actual wedding! But we’ll have a couple of days at the start of our holiday and at the end to go off and do our own thing, so would love to know what people have done and really enjoyed? Or equally, if there’s been something that wasn’t really worth doing?
