We took a day trip to NYC from Philadelphia when we visited some friends. It’s been years since I’ve visited (and the last time was with these same friends). In preparation, I looked up things that were free. Here are some of the things we did in the Big Apple, that won’t break the bank.
It can be a challenge to select which items you’re going to bring on a trip, especially when you’re packing light. Each item needs to mix and match, and go with the other items you’re bringing.

We’ve visited before, and I wrote up a complete review of what we did here: Travel Guide to Miami. This time, we stayed in Miami Beach for most of the time and got to experience some new things.

Well, not this girl. Even when I budget to have plenty for the airport, it just sort of angers me that if I really need water, I have to pay $5 for a bottle that would only cost $.50 at a store.
