New York Bucket List

10th February 2015

My New York Bucket List

I mentioned in The Weekend Blog that my parents and I have booked a little trip to New York in April. It’s my first time in America, so naturally I’m going to be excited about EVERYTHING.

I’ve created a bucket list of all the things I want to do in New York, and it looks a little like this:

1. Times Square

2. Top of the Empire State Building

3. Ground Zero

4. Statue of Liberty

5. Midtown Comics

6. Pizza!

7. Go Super Size at McDonalds

8. Central Park

9. Watch a Broadway show

10. Bagels!

I know I’m only there for 5 days but I’d like to see and do as much as possible. If I can’t do everything then there’s a good excuse to return. πŸ˜‰

And I know that everything on my list is super touristy but it’s a long way to go not to do all the touristy things. However, I’m hoping to try out some nice restaurants where the locals eat, explore some of the neighbourhoods, and do lots of shopping.

Can you tell I’m excitied? Just a little. πŸ˜›

[Edit: I’ve discovered that Super Size no longer exists *cries* but a McDonalds large in America is still larger than a UK McDonalds, so I’ll order a large!]

Enjoyed this post? Why not share it...


  1. Lots of things to do for only 5 days, but you must take advantage of every minute there πŸ™‚

  2. I can tell πŸ˜€ You better have fun! ^^

  3. Oh gosh! I forgot about McDonalds! You can get different sizes of McFlurry!!! If you have time, you should also go to Coney Island. It’s not far away at all, and it’s so surreal in that it’s like an American Blackpool! The beach is lovely though. You’ll have such a great time! There’s so much to do, I’m so envious =p

  4. You’re going to have a blast! I’ve never been to NYC but I really want to take a road trip there someday! So I’m a little jealous πŸ˜‰ Everything on your list sounds pretty typical except for the McDonald’s, which made me laugh a bit. I’m pretty sure they don’t do Super Sized anything anymore (unless there are some specific ones that still do it). Take lots of pictures so I can live through your trip, haha!

      What?! No super sized?! But it’s my dream as a Brit to order a McDonalds that wayyy too large for me. Wah!

      I feel like such an idiot now!

      Although I think a large meal in the US is still bigger than a large meal here.

      I’m sure I will take lots and lots of pictures. πŸ˜€

  5. […] like Holly, I have a New York bucket list. I mentioned what I’d love to do when I’m in New York, but I […]
