We both grew up in the US, on the East Coast, which is worlds away from the canyons of the West, the plains and Great Lakes in the Midwest and the bayous of the South. The US has diversity among its landscapes, people and cultures, from New Mexico to Main, and provides a variety of places to visit and see. This country is huge, and it’s our home. That’s all we got – for now 🙂.

Our list below will give you a start on finding where to find a delicious beverage and snack while enjoying the city.

What to See Through the Manhattan Bridge, NYC
Walking on the Manhattan Bridge is one of those non-touristy alternatives to a larger tourist attraction, the Brooklyn Bridge. We like the Manhattan Bridge because it's a real commute and it's a place from where you can get real sights of pretty real streets.
Experiencing Times Square in NYC
If you're ready to take on New York City, head to Times Square. This is a place you go to so that you can be among thousands of people, admiring the lights, the commercialism, the skyscrapers, the people dressed up like cartoon characters or the Statue of Liberty, and wonder how everything got this way.
