Whether you want to spend a weekend strolling museums or seeing shows on Broadway, NYC has something for everyone. If you’re looking for the best things to do in the city that never sleeps, here’s our guide to three days in NYC:
The ultimate guide to a weekend in nyc:
Stroll Through Central Park:
Visit the MET:
Not only does the Metropolitan Museum of Art house some of the most beautiful art pieces in the world, but the building itself is absolutely stunning. If you go during summer, be sure to go to the rooftop for a beautiful skyline views. They also often have a fashion exhibit with pieces from some of the world’s top designers and the pieces are always so stunning. Don’t leave without getting a classic Gossip Girl shot of you and your friends sitting on the steps. Another one of my favorite museums in the city is the Guggenheim and it’s just down the road from the MET. Right now they have a Hilma af Klint exhibit that is truly breathtaking.

Start Your NYC Trip Off Right with a Cookie from Levain Bakery:
Eat Dinner at Jacob’s Pickles:
Stop by Times Square at Night:
I know a lot of people hate Times Square, because there are so many people and so much craziness going on, but personally I love it. I feel like it’s the perfect spot to feel how alive NYC really is.
Wake up Early and Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge:
Spend Some Time Walking Around DUMBO:
DUMBO (which stands for down under the manhattan bridge overpass) is such a beautiful area to walk around and enjoy the views of the city. If you have kids (or even if you don’t), go on the Jane Carousel! It was built in 1922 and has by far the best views of any carousel I’ve ever seen. Take an taxi to get brunch at Maman or grab some pizza from Juliana’s for lunch.
Walk The High Line:
After you’ve crossed back over the bridge, make your way to the Highline. The Highline is an old railroad that’s been transformed into a beautiful park. This is one of our favorite things to do in the city. It has beautiful views and is so unique to NYC.
