New York City: Helicopter Rides, Raccoons, and Festivals

New York City: Helicopter Rides, Raccoons, and Festivals

Everyone calls #NewYorkCity a magical place. And to us, that's a completely true statement. During the #active day we spent here, we did the most amazing #helicopter tour over the city (Hi Lady Liberty!), ate some delicious food at a local festival, and strolled with New Yorkers in gorgeous Central Park. Overall, the best day in the Big Apple.


During our day in New York, we were treated to a helicopter flight over Manhattan (an engagement gift from some amazing friends), we wandered the High Line (it's gotten much greener since the last time we visited), soaked up the vibes and culture at the 9th Ave Food Festival (they shut down 15 blocks!), and went on a dusk-time walk through Central Park (our first sighting of a raccoon, and saw a bird swallow a fish whole!).
