Must Do / Eat / See in NYC as a First Timer

Although this past time in New York was not my first I was able to accomplish a lot of super fun tourist activities! It was so fun to have free reign of the city with my friends for spring break and if you want to see our daily itinerary (I slaved over this) along with pictures check out the posts here ( day one | day two | day three | day four )

We had an absolute blast and I have been receiving some requests to share some of my tips and must dos / sees for first timers!

If you need an excuse to take a last minute excursion then go to the Smart Girls Summit! I am so jealous that I can't attend but I know it will be a blast!

to see…
The Statue of Liberty
Broadway Shows ( I adored Cinderella and Matilda)
Empire State Building or Top of The Rock
The Plaza (hello Eloise, rawther exciting!) + Market downstairs in the Plaza

must eat…
Laduree (I am macaron obsessed b/c of NYC)
Magnolia Bakery
Ellen's Star Dust Diner
Rosie O'Gradys

Anywhere in NYC is good to shop!
But especially-
Upper East Side
Flat Iron
Madison, Park, and Fifth of course!

* you will get a lot more out of your trip if you plan out your days in advance
*figure out the subway before getting down there and use it instead of taxis #somuchcheaper
*have a map, who cares if you look like a tourist  if it gets you to where you need to go
*make reservations for restaurants

Add any tips or must do / see / or eat below!


  1. If your ever going to travel back to NYC, Pie Face is one of my favorite little spots in the city (multiple locations)! Alice's Tea Shop is the perfect places for scones & brunch. I love visiting the MET! They change their exhibits so frequently that there is always something different to see. Also, many people don't know that you can rent a row-boat in central park for just about $20 a person for an hour! Its super cute & fun :) -Long Island Preppy

  2. I love this post. This makes me want to go to NYC again and see all of this stuff because I didn't see it the last time I went!
