NYC - Part 3 - Entertainment and Other FUN!

The last installment of our New York trip is basically just some entertainment pics and other random pics that I had.

Part 3 - Entertainment and Other FUN!

HOTEL - I can definitely say that Mendy and I hit the jackpot on hotel searching. We ended up booking a suite at the Affinia Shelburne in the Murray Hill area of Midtown and it was awesome! The rooms were HUGE and beautiful, the beds were super comfy and the location was fantastic. The price was great and that is saying a lot in NYC. It was in a great neighborhood area, four blocks from Grand Central and did not feel touristy at all. Our suite had a great living room area and a small kitchen that Mendy and I soaked our feet in one night after a long day of walking.

TOYS - We went in Toys R Us in Times Square one day to get Kinley a present to bring home ( We ended up with the entire cast of Toy Story 3 in our luggage home). The Lego NYC landmarks were super impressive. But, Alex purchased a $5 Squirmel. He is pretty much an amazing Squirmel master and he puts on great shows. You should ask him. They really bonded.

THE THEATRE - I absolutely LOVE musical theatre. My very favorite show of all time is Les Miserables (not on Broadway anymore) and my second favorite is Beauty & The Beast (also not on Broadway anymore). My absolute dream job of all time would be to be Belle in Beauty in the Beast on Broadway...but, that's beside the point. Nevertheless, it was a must that on our anniversary night that we went to the Theatre. So, in an effort to entertain everyone we saw The Lion King. It was great. The costumes and music are incredible.

TIMES SQUARE - Times Square is definitely something to see when you go to New York. The lights and the ads and the shopping and the buildings are pretty incredible. And just the massive amounts of people coming at you is a sight to see in itself. We got to see Times Square in the daytime and at night after the Lion King and at night is definitely most impressive.

LATE NIGHT - Our favorite late night out was definitely night 1 at Cafe Wha? I absolutely love this place. It is an underground hole in the wall in Greenwich Village near NYU with so much music history. The ceilings are so low and you dance in the smallest spaces between the tables. I have been here a few times and it was a MUST on my list. We basically went straight there from the airport on Thursday night. The band is incredible and it was the perfect first night of our trip!

Basically, it was such a fun trip and we have more pics than we know what to do with! So, I hope you enjoyed the 3 part installment of our great NYC travel guide!
