What is your Perfect Day in New York City?

I just finished a few pages on New York City for our website Excellent Vacation Ideas. We love New York City and try to get there often.

Our first trip to New York City was actually our first trip away together as a couple. Warren and I stayed at the Plaza and were hooked on New York from then on. We took a carriage ride in Central Park, shopped, did the NBC studio tour and got to see the Rosie O'Donnell Studio (yes that was how long ago it was!). As an added bonus, the Gay Pride Parade was going down 5th when we walked out of our hotel one day. It was AWESOME!

We took Montana there for the first time in March of 2008 and she was hooked! So we took her back for our 10th Wedding anniversary and her 14th birthday this past weekend - see our blog post here.

From Central Park to street fairs to shopping on Canal Street to dining in some of the best restaurants in the world to wandering through neighborhoods, we love to spend a weekend there. Especially if we can get a good deal!

That led me to think...what is the perfect day in New York? So I ask you...what is your perfect day in New York City. Share it here What would you add to our New York Travel Guide?

I have a wonderful childhood memory of a day in New York City. I grew up in Massachusetts, just south of Boston. When I was about 12 years old and my brother was 14, my parents took us on a bus trip to New York City for Christmas!

I remember eating lunch at Rockefeller Center and watching the ice skaters. We took our first ride in a Taxi. We shopped at Macy's and were each allowed to purchase one item as our Christmas gift for that year. I also remember my mother very carefully selecting a Christmas tree ornament at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Since we were on a bus trip we only had about 4 hours in the City before we had to head back to the bus. That 4 hour day in New York City at Christmas is one of my fondest childhood memories!
