01 Jun TOP OF THE ROCK | NYC
If you follow me on Instagram (here) you may know that last week was my Birthday and that my parents were visiting from Germany. My parents were staying for about 9 days including the travel days, and we did a few day trips to the city. Since the weather was not so great the week before my Birthday, I was super happy that the sun finally had decided to come out and we were able to go on the top of the Rockefeller Center, also referred to as “Top of the Rock”., and we were able to see NYC and it wasn’t covered with rainy clouds.I loved having my parents here, and am grateful that they were here for my Birthday since I haven’t celebrated my Birthday with them in 3 years and that was actually the last time I had seen them also!
Since it was actually quite hot on my Birthday (not complaining though :D), I decided to wear something more airy since it always gets extra hot in the city. These airy blush pink culottes from H&M are truly a dream. I already love pink as you may all know, but they also fit perfectly and it wasn’t too hot with them 🙂 And I love that they match my blush pink Michael Kors purse! Yay 🙂
When you’re visiting New York and you’re trying to decide whether to go on top of the Empire Building or on Top of the Rockefeller Center, I recommend to you to definitely go on top of the Rock. Simply because when you take pictures on top of the Rockefeller Center you’ll have the Empire State Building in your pictures, and I think that’s amazing and it’s one of the most iconic trademarks of New York City. I actually ordered my tickets online here. I love buying the tickets online and in advance, because sometimes the tickets are already sold out for the time that you’d want to go.
I also teamed up with TopView Sightseeing to share some discounted prices with you guys for Sightseeing Tours in New York! When I first arrived in New York City almost 8 years ago I actually took a Sightseeing Bus Tour (here) with TopView, and last year when my best friend from Germany was visiting I took a boat tour (here) down the Hudson River with the company also, and I absolutely loved the experiences! On my to do list is definitely riding a bike through Central Park that TopView also offers (here).
I would love to hear your thoughts on New York City Sightseeing Tours, if you’d want to know more things to do in the city 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading all your comments! Bisous, Joëlle
