Saving Money on a NYC Trip

nyc_taxi

One of my very favorite cities to visit is New York City. In fact, the close proximity to NYC was one of the best things about living the DC area. I could hop in the car and be in the there in just a few hours and I was/am ALWAYS down for a trip there. However, it is one of the most expensive cities that I’ve ever visited. Here are some tips that I’ve gathered from to save a few pennies on a trip to the Big Apple.

  • Stock up on coupons–search for travel coupon sites that offer discounts on everything from lodging to entertainment.  As with all ventures in the land of coupon savings, be sure to read the fine print.  Don’t forget the daily deals sites like Groupon and LivingSocial.
  • Plan your trip around a event like Spa Week or Restaurant Week, where you can take advantage of low pricing on things that interest you.
  • Use public transportation.   Although there is NO experience like riding in an authentic NYC taxi, it is not the most cost effective way to travel.   The MTA New York City Subway is a far better choice.  You can usually get within a few blocks of your destination.  Hotel concierges usually have transit maps and can give you the ins and outs.  However, this is NOT for the faint at heart.  Expect to see most anything.

These are some of my favorite tips.  How have you cut corners on a New York City vacation.
