Honeymoon in New York City - Radio City Music Hall

Tyler and I had such a hard time choosing where to go for our honeymoon. We wanted some place with lots of different things to do, but not too cold; somewhere where we could relax but also do fun activities if we felt like being more active; somewhere easy to get to - not a lot of travel time, but also somewhere cultured enough to keep us entertained. Yea. We were a little crazy and maybe asking for a little too much.

We settled on NYC! With a two hour plane ride and more than a million things to do, it seemed like the perfect place for us to spend a week after our wedding. It turned out to be such an amazing time. We saw so many sights but could you believe there are still things on our list we weren't able to get to? New York is one of those cities that you could live in for decades and never see absolutely everything.

We focused our trip on doing the big touristy things since neither of us - though we have been to the city many times for work and other things - had seen the city as a tourist. We had so much fun and even ran into our friends while we were there. Here's a few pictures of our trip. Hope you enjoy!

One of our late night walks around Midtown. Had to take a picture of Radio City Music Hall! Legendary.

The Ed Sullivan Theater where The Late Show is filmed was right around the corner from our hotel. Such a cool suprise!

Our room at The Ameritania in Times Square. We loved the location of this hotel - so close to everything, so we had a lot of late night walks around Midtown.

Had to take advantage of the street meat - best Halal and middle eastern food EVER! Can't beat it at $5.

Lamb & Rice with Vegetables and Tzatziki Sauce. Yum!

On Day 2, we spent our morning at MOMA - The Museum of Modern Art. This was by far our favorite part of the trip!

Honeymoon in New York City - Henri Matisse at MOMA
My all time favorite Matisse. I've always loved the colors in his paintings. I was so happy to see Dance (I) and more of his work in person!

Honeymoon in New York City - van Gogh at MoMA
Tyler especially loved seeing Starry Night by van Gogh. We both gasped when we turned the corner. Had to snap a picture of him taking it in!

Honeymoon in New York City - Jackson Pollock at MoMA
We saw a class having a lecture about Jackson Pollock and we thought that was so cool. Tyler and I both went to school in Florida, where you just learn about paintings in textbooks. What a cool thing to go to school in the city and learn about paintings while sitting right in front of them. Not sure the kids appreciated this opportunity, but it was awesome for us to see.

One World Trade Center
The last time I went to NYC was in 2010, and the 9/11 Memorial was still under construction. We finally got to see the memorial completely finished and it was truly a very somber experience. It's amazing how many lives were lost that day, and they did a beautiful job commemorating that space.

Thanks New York! See you next time.
