After missing out on girls weekends this past year, I’m so excited to have visitors again here in NYC! Spring is one of the best seasons to visit and today I’m sharing my 5 top things to on your next girls weekend in NYC!
5 TOP THINGS TO DO ON A GIRLS WEEKEND IN NYC THIS SPRING:
1. Visit The Flower District
One of my favorite spots in the city is the Flower District on 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. The entire street is filled with flowers, planets and faux flowers so it truly feels like a dreamy different world. This time of year is my favorite thanks to the abundance of peonies and lilacs. Most of the storefronts close by noon so definitely make sure to head there early!
2. Wander Through The West Village
A perfect weekend for me always involves a walk through the West Village. I love to stop in my favorite stores like Greenwich Letterpress, grab a coffee or treat (Harris Bakes is my new favorite bakery!) and of course, take photos of all my favorite townhouses. It’s the perfect place to get lost in with one of your best friends!
3. Have A Picnic In The Park
Depending what neighborhood you end up in around lunchtime, a picnic in the park is always a favorite activity. No worrying about waiting for a table, grab a sandwich, tacos or bagels with some blankets and wine and you have the perfect set up!
My favorite parks and meals to have at them? If you’re in Central Park, sandwiches from Milano Market or bagels from Pick A Bagel can’t be beat. For Washington Square Park, Court Street Grocers makes some of my favorite sandwiches in the city. And finally, if out in Williamsburg, head to McCarren Park with bagels from Frankel’s Delicatessen!
4. Spend The Morning In Central Park
A morning in Central Park is always such a relaxing way to start the day. Grab a latte from Ralph’s Coffee and wander through picturesque spots like Bethesda Fountain and the sail boat pond.
5. Watch The Sunset With Rooftop Cocktails and Dinner
Cocktails with the city skyline in the background really can’t be beat. Take the ferry from Manhattan to Williamsburg and head to one of the rooftop bars to see the sunset over the Manhattan skyline. Some favorites? Westlight, Summerly and Watertower Bar.
