Top 5 Things to Do in New York City

Brodo2 1024x682 Top 5 Things to Do in New York City

I know, I know – not another list, right? But this one is a legitimate, friend-curated, New Yorker-approved list of things to do and eat if you have a quick two or three days in the Big Apple coming up! You probably already know by now that you can’t see everything in New York on a shorter (or even sometimes lengthier) excursion, so you’ve got to prioritize – and, if we’re being honest, the Statue of Liberty probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Make the most of the exhibits and restaurants that are around now and you won’t regret a single subway swipe (or cab ride) across the island.

Spotlight: Eat This, Shoot That

 Guest Blogger Alert! Mrs. Archer from Weddingbee shares her Eat This, Shoot That experience exclusively with Wanderable!

Mr. & Mrs. Archer from Weddingbee.com

We Archers were lucky enough to experience first hand that the best things in life are not things, but adventures with the one you love! (Duh).  Through Wanderable, (our new obsession, where was this when we were getting married?!) we were able to go on an amazing date night in beautiful Santa Barbara. We ultimately decided to go with Eat This, Shoot That for our experience, which combines mini photo lessons and a food tour,  starting near the beach and moving to different restaurants, wine bars, brew houses and distilleries. We were able to sample some of Santa Barbara’s best seafood (ceviche!), gourmet fried chicken, and local wines.  We spent the most of our time in the hip Funk Zone area (more on this later) and got to savor some great food while picking up a lot of tips for how to take better photographs (but I still can’t take a selfie).
