NYC with Teen Girls- Trip Report

Jump to last reply

Just returned from a 4 night, fun filled packed to the brim, adventure to NYC with my 15 year old daughter and her friend. I did much of my trip research on this forum and thanks to all of you, we saw a huge slice of New York. The girls loved every minute of it from the hot underground subways to the streets teaming with people from every county to the skyscrapers and of course the shopping.

Here goes in abbreviated form. We stayed at the Embassy Suites...good choice for room size,helpful staff, huge free breakfast and my much needed two free glasses of wine in the evening..bad choice for location if you want nighttime entertainment in Times Square, good location if you like to be near the water.

First Evening, subway to Union Square, great people watching, shopping at Forever 21, Dinner at a great cuban restaurant and walk up 5th avenue to Times Square. The girls saw many shops along this walk that they wanted to return to. They of course loved Times Square and they just wandered through the crowds, in and out stores, taking pictures and checking out the street vendors, Cab back to hotel because I didn't have my bearing for which subway.

Will post the rest of trip later.
