Check out apartment rentals instead of hotels: Hotels in the city of New York can be extremely expensive. You can find some deals that are affordable, but they are often in areas you prefer not to stay, or in smaller accommodations that aren’t comfortable. Check out things like AirBnB to find better prices on apartment rentals that offer more for your family than staying in a hotel.
Book theater tickets in advance: Last minute tickets to theater performances often cost much more than if you plan in advance and buy tickets before your stay in the city of New York. Take the time to look and research the various options off-Broadway and pick your top choices. Compare prices and choose a few performances that you want to see the most and purchase from there.
Choose the Unlimited Metrocard: The city of New York has amazing Metrocard options, but one of those is to pay a flat fee for unlimited use. If you are going to be going all over the city for attractions and to and from lodging, this is a must. They offer a 7-day unlimited pass that works ideally for those on vacations.
The city of New York is one of the most iconic travel destinations you will find. With tons of beautiful architecture, great hotels, musicals, and plays, as well as amazing food you’ll find something for everyone in your family to enjoy. These tips will help you and your family save money while also enjoying your favorite picks of attractions in the city of New York.
