How to Plan a Vacation to New York

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get planning!


How to Plan a Vacation to New York

Choose a Destination

The first step to plan your memorable New York vacation is choosing the best destination in the state. For many, the first place that comes to mind is New York City. In the city, there is always an event to attend, attractions to see, and something going on.

However, if you are looking for a more relaxing trip, you might want to consider the Hamptons. Relax by the ocean and take in the calming and peaceful views. There are also plenty of destinations in upstate New York like Albany, Lake George, Saratoga Springs, the Catskills, Niagra Falls, and more.


Invite Your Friends

There’s never a better way to enjoy your vacation than inviting your friends. However, just make sure you do this a few months before your vacation, so they can make sure they’re available.

With the help of your friends, you can all decide on an agreed destination, so no one feels left out. But, now that you’re enjoying your vacation with your friends, you can all split the vacation costs to lower your expenses during your trip.


Where to Stay

There are plenty of options to choose from when deciding where to stay during vacation. Whether you decide to stay at a hotel, motel, Airbnb, or a vacation rental house from The Baker House 1650, there are nearly limitless choices.

We generally suggest staying at a friend’s or relative’s house if you can to save money, but Airbnb rooms are also usually inexpensive in comparison to hotels.

Not to mention, TripAdvisor can help you manage a daily itinerary, and Groupon can score you hundreds of hotel bookings and restaurant meals.

Although planning a vacation can be stressful for some people, there are plenty of resources at your disposal to create an unforgettable one. Hopefully, with the help of this guide, you’re able to plan a more enjoyable vacation and enjoy it with your friends and family.
