Everyone should visit New York at least once in life. Even though the city has a reputation for being expensive, with proper planning it’s easy to have a great, low-cost vacation in the Big Apple. And with so many activities to choose from, you will likely want to return for future trips.
Transportation from the airport: When booking your flight, take note of which of the three major airports your flight will land: LaGuardia, JFK, or Newark. Depending on where you stay in New York City, ground transportation from the various airports can be pricey, so plan accordingly. For instance, if you are staying in the upper west side, LaGuardia airport is the closest airport at only ten miles away. However, if you’re staying in midtown near Times Square and Rockefeller Center, JFK airport is the closest airport at fifteen miles away.
