9/11 Memorial Museum

Welcome back beautiful readers.

I had take a little vacation from social media for the past 3 months. but I’m happy to be back to bring some helpful tips, to all of you city dreamers.

recently my friends and I went to the 9/11 memorial museum.  and the reason why we haven’t been there before is because of the giant lines outside in the cold. so here are some helpful tips.

The museum will take you step by step about the events that happened that day, make sure to read, and reflect about what you see. WE WILL NEVER FORGET. also the museum counts with a self guide audio tour in so many different languages. you can bring your own headphones or just used the ones they let you borrow at the museum. they also have a small cafeteria in case you get hungry.

information base in the outside and tickets purchase

we bought our tickets online, and that was actually good because by the time we got there they were already sold out.

the ticket we bought was a non time ticket. we bought it because it was the most buy ticket, we figured it was going to be more easer just to get there and go in with the group going at that time, since they let people in every half an hour.

little that we know buying a non time ticket is was going to be our biggest mistake

so they have 2 giant lines one for people holding time tickets and the other line was for non time tickets or if you were going to purchase tickets you also go to the non time line.

we spend three and a half hours on a very very slow line in the cold trying to get our time ticket. that was really no fun at all also I saw a lot of elderly people on the line for hours. I wish they would have done some kind of fast access to the elderly is was brutally cold to be standing in line for that long.

After you get your time tickets you hope that’s it you have finally reach the window and you are ready to go in but NOT….. those 3 and a half hours in line are just to get a time ticket. So before we had tickets but now we have the time on the ticket????? That just didn’t make sense to me or anyone who was in the line for those many hours… After we got our time ticket we were frozen literally. and ready to do another looooooonnngggg line to get in so in total we spend four and a half hours doing lines before we got inside. and when you finally make your way inside you forget about the four and a half hours standing in the cold is really breath taking so much to see, read and reflect. definitely worth the lines. But is always good to save some time if you have the opportunity that’s why I decide to give you’ll these tips.

TIPS.

make sure to BUY a TIME ticket ONLINE, and make sure you are there 15-30 minutes BEFORE the time that is printed on your ticket. oh yeah printed your ticket have it ready. it just makes things more faster. and Don’t be late or you will end up doing 2 lines (yeap) an extra one because your time passed and you need a new time ticket.

there you go hopefully these tips will help you enjoy more your visit to the museum.

*** Thank You for all then love!******

This Summer I decided to explore some of the pop up stores in the city, and the Magnum store in particular cough my attention, I am such an ice cream lover and I just had to go and try it for myself because all of the Instagram and Facebook ads were not enough.

This is what you get All the Ice cream bars have one standard price  $8.00 which is not bad

you get to choose from vanilla or chocolate Ice cream bar. (I’m totally Vanilla)  then you have to pick in which type of chocolate you want your bar to be deep. dark or milk chocolate.

after that you can choose 3 toppings  really hard  to chose everything looks delicious. I will suggest to get the rose petals is just a most have!!

get ready for the drizzle you can choose from milk, dark, and white.

After all those options you just want to give it a big bit, but first you will have to get a selfie of your creation. Magnum have 2 selfie stands for your ice cream bar is the cutest thing ever. they melt fast so don’t take too long with those selfies.

Cape Cod

Cape Cod Massachusetts What a fun get away, Looooveee love that place. So much to do and see, of course best Seafood ever Best clam chowder soup and Lobster rolls! They are to die for.

What can you do in Cape

If you enjoy the outdoors take your time and visit all the Island all the way to Provincetown. Go to each one of their Light houses they are so beautiful, sunsets are breathtaking. Whale Watching is a total Plus, if you get sea sick make sure you stay indoor until you reach the Whales, trust me me you will Thank me later. The Captain will let everybody know if there is something to see. While you are in cape and if you have a sweet tooth make sure to try their very famous chocolate cover cranberry!! Delicious!!

Go on a fun 3 Hours train ride at the Cape Cod Central Railroad and make reservations for lunch or dinner is such a romantic idea and you will get the feeling like if you had gone back on time. Food is also really good!

Also visit the little towns along the way they are so cute you will always find different and interesting things to see.

If you have some extra time try to make the ferry trip to Martha’s Vineyard! Who doesn’t like the to visit a beautiful and very famous beach, Farms and Festivals tons of activities to do.

Make the trip as enjoyable as possible is worth every penny, I will totally recommend to rent your own beach house if you go with a group, but if you can’t hotels are also super nice and clean! With beautiful sea views!

Train Lunch beautiful views

Washington DC

Trips are always fun!

I like visiting museums and walking around, I love how clean the streets feel in Washington D.C. There are so many things to do and see one weekend is not enough to visit all the museums and monuments.

Getting around is pretty easy you can either walk around ……A lot of walking! Or you can take the subway or as they called it in DC the Metro, which is a big different as the subway in NY since they have line of colors instead of letter like the subways here… their fare is also more expensive depends where you are going.

Is you like to take a trip down don’t forget to visits

•George Town

•Alexandria

•The National Harbor

•The White House • of course

•All the Museums & Monuments

(They have so many, I can’t named them all).
