New York City is such a big and wonderful place, and serves as the home for many celebrities, and the setting for numerous classic television shows… one of my favorites is Sex and the City. In that show, you follow four friends (Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda) on their love life adventures (and misadventures) in the great state of New York.
You go through the ins and out of their lives, but as you watch the show, it truly showcases New York… the good, the bad, and the ugly (GBU). But doesn’t everywhere have a GBU? Of course! So ,who’s to say one place’s GBU is worse than the next place! And if you’re tired of your town’s GBU, then go experience New York’s! Don’t believe the rumors that New York is this terrible place where you’ll get mugged due to its urban surroundings – there’s much more good than bad in this particular GBU!
Just like Carrie and the gang, you and all of your sorority sisters can see all the sites in NYC on a sisters’ trip! New York offers visitors so much, from the food and historical landmarks, to the entertainment and alternative hospitality that only the city of New York can offer. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday with girlfriends, or there for New Year’s Eve, you should experience New York at least once!
In order for you and your sorority sisters to really take a bite out of the Big Apple, there are distinctive locations in New York that you all must see, if you’ve never been there. Check out these major New York City attractions that will make your girls’ trip one you’ll never forget!
For a girls trip, visiting Times Square is a no-brainer! You always see the all-famous intersection on television, but that can even begin to compare to actually seeing it in person! If you’ve been looking for the perfect excuse to finally take the trip, and see Times Square for yourself, then there’s no better reason than a girls’ trip with your favorite ladies!
You have the bright lights, the multiple LED screens, and the overall hustle and bustle of the city to tickle your senses. There’s all kinds of lively entertainment, fabulous restaurants, and seasonal events happening there all the time, so regardless of when you and the girls plan a visit, you can be sure that there will be something going on to keep you all entertained!
Statue of Liberty
When you think of New York, in general, what is the first thing that pops in your head? It’s the statue of Liberty isn’t it? If you’ve never seen the Statue of Liberty, it will leave you awestruck like nothing else in the world. To see, let alone experience, this work of art is an unforgettable experience, and to experience this with your best girlfriends is even more memorable.
The beautiful monument, standing at 151 feet tall from the base,to the top of the torch, has been greeting immigrants and visitors to New York for close to 200 years now, and she’s sure to give you a warm welcome too. Next to the American flag, Lady Liberty is the ultimate symbol of freedom for Americans all over the world. You and your girlfriends can go see her, and take pictures, learn the history behind her, buy souvenirs, and really reflect on her symbolism, and what she means to you.
Being that this is a girls’ trip, what do women like to get together and do (besides drink wine)? Shop!!! New York City is home to the Century 21 Department Store, and if you and your girlfriends love shopping, then Century 21 is one stop you don’t want to miss out on!
This store has 7 floors, and 220,000 square feet of retail goodness. You and your girlfriends can go in there and shop for anything under the sun, ranging from clothes and shoes, to home decor and kitchen supplies. While you’re in NYC, don’t sell yourself short by missing out on this shopping oasis.
