My dream vacation with S-Trip! would be to take a trip down to the one and only, New York City! I’d go during the summer time so I can avoid the rain, I’m not a big fan of getting wet. I chose New York because it has always been my dream city. I’ve been to New York already, and I definitely fell in love with it. I love everything about The Big Apple, the bright lights, the crowded streets, the fashion trends, and the tall buildings. Those are just a few things I love about New York. I’m very big in the fashion department, I’ve dreamt about becoming a high end fashion stylist in the future, and as we all know New York is known to be one of the fashion capitals in the world! The fashion industry is rapidly growing as we speak, models, designers, stylists, anybody and anything that is related to the fashion industry dreams to make it big in a place like New York. This is where your love for fashion matters. New York is my city of dreams, and I hope to return one day.
I would take my best friends on this trip, what’s a vacation without good friends? My friends would definitely enjoy the shopping in this beautiful city. They’d love to shop at night in Time Square as they watch the lights go off around them. The food is also something they’d die for! Although food can be quite pricey, heck New York is pricey itself, it’s definitely worth it! The experience staying in a city as beautiful and exciting as New York City is worth every penny. While I’m in this extraordinary city, I’d like to get as much shopping done as I can. Fifth Avenue and SoHo is definitely a must when your goal is to maximize your shopping experience. I’d also take another visit down to the Statue of Liberty, and take walk around Central Park. The last time I was in New York, the weather didn’t cooperate with us so we didn’t get to enjoy much of Central Park. The Empire State Building is also a must! Time Square’s city lights may be to die for at night, but the view from the Empire State Building is one of a kind. I would also take advantage of what Time Square has to offer, and watch some of their plays! Last time I visited, I watched Wicked, perhaps this time I’ll watch The Lion King. I’m a definite sucker for Disney films! Lastly, I’d squeeze in a visit to the Rockefeller Center. They’re known for their beautiful sculptures, enormous skating rink, shopping opportunities, and a perfect view of NBC Studios.
Travelling to New York with my friends would probably be as much fun as it was to travel to New York with my family. Although this time we’ll be a little more adventurous and do wilder things. 😉 But let’s be honest, going on a trip with your friends is more exciting! The vibe, and the experience will be wilder, crazier, and more carefree. The memories you make will be something you’d cherish for forever.
