I took my parents on a quick vacation to New York City in April, and we had an amazing time! Mom had never been to New York City before, and has always had a love for performance and dreams of seeing Broadway, and Dad had only been to the city on quick trips before I was born, so it was a special time for all of us. Thanks to some great weather, we managed to do all of major tourist essentials, including the Empire State Building, a harbor cruise around the Statue of Liberty, a carriage ride through Central Park, plus Grand Central Station and a little shopping at Tiffany's and FAO Schwarz. On top of that, we saw three Broadway shows with fantastic seats, and simply enjoyed the entire adventure. I could definitely get hooked on Broadway easily, so maybe we can do it again sometime soon!
