My New York City Bucketlist ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

One of the points on my Bucketlist is to live in New York City for minimum a month as a “local” and discover everything the concrete jungle has to offer. While I don’t see this goal being reached anytime in the near future, I still think it’s important to hold on to those dreams, otherwise they will never come true.. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime, I have created my very own New York City Bucketlist. My goals is to check off every point on this list when I do visit New York again, and I will use it as a drive to see and do all the things I want want! While many of the points on the list can be seen as typical “touristy”, I also got many amazing tips from locals using Spottedbylocals New York. This website is brilliant – locals write about their favorite spots in their city and they serve a total of 72 cities around the world. If visiting a new city in the near future, maybe that city is on the list and you’ll get some great tips!
