    My husband and I are planning on a New York trip this Christmas. What are your suggestions on budge friendly hotels or places to stay?

    • I’m afraid I don’t have any personal recommendations on hotels but I would recommend trying Air BnB or Flip Key for an apartment rental. You can also consider renting a bedroom in someone’s apartment via Air BnB for a super cheap stay. Another money-saving option is to stay in Brooklyn as it’s very easy to get to Manhattan by train.

    We went to NYC last summer, it was very hot and humid but we still enjoyed our trip. We’ll definitely consider going to NYC at Christmas. We saved a lot on accommodation since I stayed in a hostel. We also had city pass so we can see a lot of attractions. New York City may be known as the most expensive city in USA, but there’s also no shortage of free things to do. I already visited some museums, Time Square and Statue of Liberty. I also went to a lot of diners and clubs and I watched free concerts at Central Park after checking out the NYC Parks website. By the way, I found a website listing free events in New York which is great because I didn’t have much of a budget. I think might be useful to people also visiting New York who are looking for free things to do.
