Take a tour on the first day of vacation to get a crash course of the city.
Take notes of everything that seems interesting.
Go back and explore in depth.
It's weird to say, because I always felt sorry for people taking tours whether it be on a bus, boat, or foot.
They always seem to be zooming past the best stuff and stopping at the worst.
But I get it now.
My parents treated us to an afternoon on the Circle Island Cruise.
While I had been to most of the places the tour guide mentioned,
he peeked my curiosity for Roosevelt Island.
It's now on my list.
Have you ever been pleasantly surprised on a tour? Most are lame!
Have you ever written/read an entire blog post using center justification? Most are lame!
|This is not Roosevelt Island. I think it's Downtown Manhattan.|
Although I don't know for sure. I wasn't taking notes.
C is for Columbia University. Teenagers jump off this 100 ft cliff! Mine better not.
