The time has come for you and your partner to have a romantic getaway, and you have chosen the destination of New York City. The City That Never Sleeps is full of fun activities for both of you, but you should never go to the Big Apple unprepared. Here are some tips for your first couples’ trip to New York City.
Pack Your Bags Carefully
One tip you should consider as you venture into New York City is to carefully pack your bags. Essentially, don’t bring too much with you. Overpacking can make your experience far more stressful and force you to pay extra to check multiple bags when you take a train or plane home.
Instead, do one of the easy ways to make your trip stress-free—only bring versatile and multi-functional items for your vacation wardrobe. This includes comfortable, simple walking shoes and lightweight clothing that will take up less space in your luggage.
Establish a Budget
Another tip for your first couples’ trip to New York City is to establish a budget. New York City can be very expensive, so do some research ahead of time to find out how much things might cost and what your non-negotiable experiences will be.
That way, you won’t feel blindsided when you get hit with high prices or bills while having a day of fun. Instead, you can budget for the experiences you and your partner aren’t willing to leave New York without having. Also, there are many places you can enjoy in New York City for free, including Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Book a Hotel in a Good Location
You and your partner should also be mindful when booking your hotel. Try to pick a location closer to the sights you want to see, so you don’t waste much of your vacation time walking. Picking a convenient place allows you to relax between your adventures in New York City.
However, avoid booking a hotel in the neighborhood around Times Square. It can be noisy, crowdy, and more expensive, so booking outside this area will be worth the walk.
With these tips, you and your partner will have a much better stay in New York City. Not everybody gets to enjoy a trip to the Big Apple, so make sure you make your trip as hassle-free as possible.
