Ithaca, NY

 

Ithaca, New York is a charming city filled with the best combinations of Upstate New York charm and cosmopolitan opportunities. During my stay for a wedding at Ithaca’s Farmers Market I enjoyed the fresh produce, waterfalls and hospitality. Please enjoy my photos from Ithaca Farmer’s Market, surrounding farms and Taughannock Falls (with a 215 foot plunge, the waterfall stands three stories taller than Niagara Falls!).

Deciding where to go for a girls’ getaway or a surprise bachelorette can be daunting. Luckily my friends and I are close to a great weekend getaway location: Atlantic City! We had a blast on Memorial Weekend in which we enjoyed the food, beach and sights! There was so much we did not get a chance to see or experience this time around, so I will definitely have to go back.

NYC Staycation: Staten Island, NY

It is amazing to have NYC as my hometown! I love exploring the hidden treasures the city has to offer. Staten Island for the day was the perfect escape. From the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden to the stained glass at Main Hall I was transported around the world. A day long exploration at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden was just the trip I needed during the summer heat of NYC!
