Tour New York City on a Budget

A few years ago I had the pleasure to visit New York City on a press trip. It was something I had wanted to do since I was a little kid and I was happy to cross it off my list.

When I was invited to visit New York, it was just before the holidays so I knew that money would be tight and I needed to prepare for my trip and keep myself on a budget while still visiting some key spots.

Here is a list of places to visit in New York City that are budget friendly!

  1. Times Square - You've seen pictures but I can guarantee it is even more amazing in real life, especially and night when the sky is dark and everything is lit up. You can walk around to all the different stores, enjoy some food from vendor carts, shop on the corner or just people watch!

  2. Rockefeller Center - If you are traveling to NYC from mid-October thru April, be sure to visit The Rink ($) at Rockefeller Center or even skate if you wish. Visit the Top of the Rock Observation Deck ($) and take in the amazing view of the city, it doesn't disappoint. Take a stroll through The Channel Gardens outside Rockefeller Center or do some shopping at the Concourse.

  3. St. Patrick's Cathedral - Stop by and take in this beautiful site with its American Gothic Revival style architecture.

  4. Central Park - Get lost in Central Park, take a walk, relax, and just enjoy it. The park is home to many statues, bridges, playgrounds and is overflowing with beauty. You can even rent a bike at the park if you wish!

  5. The Met or MOMA - Stop by one of these great museums and take in some of the most famous works of art out there.

New York is overflowing with things you can do while on a budget. If I were to go again, I would visit places like Yankee Stadium, The Empire State Building, The Tonight Show, ride the subway and so much more.
