I've always dreamed about visiting New York City. Living in Europe makes things more complicated for me, but I will do everything possible to make my dream come true.
After finding this article(MOD NOTE - Link Removed) I made it my leading destination for my honeymoon trip. My husband and I are getting married in 6 months , so hopefully, we'll be able to make our dream come true ! Can you recommend some places worth visiting in NYC?
IMO there is nothing in NYC worth visiting.

I think that there are probably lots of things in NYC worth visiting but I have never been and have no intentions of going.

My grand daughter has been several times and says it is definitely not as you imagine or as they portray it. She said that the place is dirty with trash stacked up in alleys full of rats. She also said that the whole place smells like wet boiled cabbage. I have no idea what that means but it doesn't sound very pleasant.

I have endured NY City several times for sales calls and packaging machinery show & conventions. Never came to like the town.

Once many ears ago, my wife nd I took our son and his cousin on a trip up the east coast from Philadelphia to Maine. It included Washington DC , Boston, Lexington/Concord and many revolutionary sites.

As we came out of the Tunnel into New York, there was a sign that said Up Town, and one that said Down Town. Me, I was looking for the one that said Out-a-Town.

The closest to NYC I've been was flying in to Newark on a connection flight to Charleston SC with a 2 hr layover. Never left the airport. Saw the statue of liberty from the air before landing.

I believe your grand daughter is correct.

She forgot to mention the street crime.

I would recommend Austria . Beautiful landscapes and very beautiful architecture. Hospitable people and delicious food - what could be better for a holiday. Especially if it's a winter vacation in the Alps. I went to the Alps with a friend this year. We bought train tickets and went to the mountains. Believe me, this is something amazing. The landscapes outside the windows changed as if in a fairy tale. I think this is the best place for an active and interesting Christmas holiday with friends or family.

Was in Miami a couple years back. Most of the place was a dump and we were happy to get out of there.
We have a condo in FL and we go from time-to-time. Mrs Zoom & the kids are heading there after Christmas.

I would love to do the charter sailboat thing again in the Windwards.

But this year will be spent pounding nails at Hippie Ridge.

I've been to 43 states. I'd like to finish that up with the remaining New England states I need to see and then Alaska would be my last one.

Cuba has always been #1 on my bucket list. Fly out of Cancun. No stamps on the passport and they take dollars. Or, change to pesos before you fly out of Cancun. Not sure how it is now - most countries require fully vaxed papers now from what I hear. I’ll never have that document

Well, I am obsessed with Japanese culture so I would love to go to Japan on vacation. There are plenty of things to cherish about Japan but for me, the most cherishable thing is kabuki theatre culture. Kabuki is a traditional style of Japanese theatre. It is a theatrical style with a very rich history. Originating from the 1600s it’s incorporated the social topics of that time and even after many renditions, sanctions from leaders, and changes it is still as popular as ever.
