The free 24-hour Staten Island Ferry is considered by many New Yorkers as a lifeline for making their way from NYC’s southernmost borough, but it also has some of the finest views in the world. From the ferry, you can see the Governors Island to the east and Ellis Island and Lady Liberty to the west, as the Manhattan skyline recedes in the vessel’s wake. Sounds like something that is definitely worth the price of admission, lol
I lived most of my life in Southern California and spent many weekends in Las Vegas. As much fun as Vegas is, it can be really expensive and really crowded. I am not much of a crowd person, so I much rather head to Laughlin to gamble and spend a long weekend. It’s only about 41/2 hours from where we used to live so it was a nice 3 or 4-day weekend trip we did every few years. I would rather go there most times, but many of our friends always liked to go to Vegas for bachelor/bachelorette parties or birthday parties. I also tried to convince people to go to Laughlin instead, lol. Sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn’t. 🙁
I love sharing stories and pictures from our travels. It helps remind me the feelings I felt while there, and I get to share our experience with other travelers or those wanting to travel. One such place I enjoyed Christmas in 2018 was visiting the M&M’s World Store in Times Square. We had been in the area on a previous trip but never made it into the store. We were too busy visiting the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, lol. So glad we did on our last trip. It was fantastic and so exciting to share our visit on my blog.
We had a great time in Chicago and really enjoyed visiting some of the sights like Willis Tower, the Art Institute, the Museum of Science and Industry, and Millennium Park. However one of the more relaxing and enjoyable things we did in the windy city, was checking out the Navy Pier. It is quite a unique place and I am so glad we spent a few hours roaming around and seeing what there was to see. Continue reading “Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois – Over a 100 Years in the Making”
