Travel & Food Blogger Roaming Nanny raves about our Flatiron Food, History & Architecture Tour!

We are so pleased to share this great write-up on our Flatiron Food Tour by Roaming Nanny. “Our tour met up in the Flatiron district at 10:30 sharp. Rory, our tour guide, was there early to meet up with us all and I liked her instantly! Upon further investigation - Rory I swear I'm not a stalker, but think we should totally be friends - I found out that she was voted one of the best tour guides in New York. Get it girl! She is one of the best guides I've had in a very long time…”

Summertime at Brooklyn Bridge Park & DUMBO

Summertime at Brooklyn Bridge Park & DUMBO

According to the NY Harbor Parks website, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade will take your breath away. Made famous by cameo appearances in movies like Annie Hall and Moonstruck, it is one of the most romantic spots in New York City, and has been the destination for thousands of first dates, wedding proposals and anniversary celebrations. One-third of a mile long, it offers a vista of the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline and the majestic Brooklyn Bridge. Lined with flower beds, trees, benches and playgrounds, the promenade is a favorite destination for tourists, joggers, strollers, families and lovers.

It's a great place to visit whether you're local or visiting from out of town. If you're staying in Manhattan, we recommend a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and then a few hours to enjoy the promenade. Plan your visit to finish up around sunset for incredible views (and photos!). The walk across the bridge takes about an hour, so plan accordingly....

CUBA! Adventures in Havana and beyond!

Cuba is all the rage with Americans right now (and for good reason) so we had to get down there to see for ourselves! We met lots of incredible people, learned about the revolution and it's modern day ramifications, learned how to salsa, enjoyed lots of live music (day and night) and had many memorable meals. And enjoyed more than a few mojitos and Cuba libres!
