Our last full day in NYC, we headed to Central Park. It was perfect timing because my introverted husband was getting really tired of people. Central Park was a surprisingly beautiful quiet oasis right in the middle of the crazy busy city. We loved it. When we go again, I would spend at least one whole day there doing nothing!
We got out of Central Park and headed to the American Museum of Natural History. Matt is a huge history and museum buff. Me? Not so much. But I loved this one! It was amazing!
I’m super afraid of gorillas!
We headed back through Central Park and headed to Serendipity for frozen hot chocolate. One of my favorite movies, Serendipity, was filmed there. The frozen hot chocolate was out of this world!
We then headed to Dylan’s Candy bar for more chocolate and to get some treats for the kids. It was packed!
By then we had been walking for hours and hours and just wanted to get pizza and head back to our hotel. We grabbed a slice at a hole-in-the-wall pizza joint and headed back to comfort. What a crazy, busy day!! The next day was our last day there and we had to be at the bus stop at 2 p.m. We had breakfast, did a little shopping, vegged out in front of the original Macy’s, had lunch at a crappy but delicious diner and then boarded the dreaded bus. We got home safe and sound to extremely happy to see us children!
Fun Surprising Fact about NYC from Matt and Tiffany: Locals are constantly having serious, deep, loud conversations on the phone right on the sidewalk. We learned TMI about many locals on our trip! I guess there’s no place else to talk, right?
