We're starting our trip in Long Island, where the auditions are held. And so far the topic of "places to see" there has revolved around the statue of Poseidon, which is something my little brother wants to see, after reading the Percy Jackson series.
After leaving Long Island, we're going into the city. The last time I went to New York City was in December of 2007 - where the highlight of the trip was visiting the American Girl Doll Store.
As fun as that was when I was 10, I'm looking forward to this trip even more because we're going to visit some great places in the city - like Times Square, the Empire State Building, Central Park, and the World Trade Center.
By far, my favorite part of the last trip was the horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park. Maybe because it was the wintertime. It was beautiful with all the snow falling, and it felt like a fairytale.
I'll post more about my New York trip when we get back.
