{Guest Blog}: Summer in the City

Reality is starting to creep back in... it's Thursday which is pretty much the weekend which is pretty much Monday when I have to head back to Charlotte. But Thursday also means that my brother comes to Kiawah in a few hours! Y'all know the drill now - another guest post, this time from Hope. She's headed back to Charlotte soon but is blogging about summer in NYC today.

Hi dolls! I'm Hope from Hope in a Blog. Although my husband and I are leaving New York City to head back down south to Charlotte, NC there are a lot of NYC activities we are going to miss! If you're planning a visit to this exciting place you have got to be sure to check out a few things:

  1. Museums Galore: You seriously can't go wrong with any NYC museum. There are endless options from the MoMa to the Museum of Natural History. 
  2. Walk or bike around Central Park.
  3. Central Park Zoo - although small it's still pretty awesome to walk around Central Park and then hop on over to a ZOO! 
  4. Shop....need I say more? Walk around 5th avenue, go to Soho...shop until you drop!
  5. Statue of Liberty - I can't say I have done this, but I would hop on a ferry to go see Lady Liberty!
  6. Restaurants with a rooftop bar or garden patio. I mean...it's summer in the city. I would suggest going to 230 Fifth in the Flatiron district for a groovy view of the Empire State Building. The Boat Basin Cafe is also a very fun outdoor place!
  7. Visit the World Trade Center Museum and Ground Zero. Definitely heavy but so important and patriotic. 
  8. Walk or bike the High Line.
  9. Visit Magnolia Bakery. Best cupcakes ever.
  10. Go to a Broadway Show in the evening,
As a self proclaimed southerner living the NYC life for a little over a year, I am sure I missed some of the tried and true places + tips a true New Yorker would suggest...I am still learning them all myself. But, one thing I do know is that on my future visits I plan to do as many of these activities as I can cram into one trip! 



  1. I visited NYC a few summers ago and it was the perfect time to go! I loved the cool mornings and being able to enjoy delicious bagels. A roof top bar sounds so much fun as well!

  2. Thanks for letting me guest post, hun!!!! Xxxxxxxx.
