When you hear the word "city" what city comes to mind? NYC all day every day! I'm the kind of traveler that usually stays away from big cities, but if I'm going to spend significant time and money in a city, it's going to be the most formidable of cities. Most of what I know about New York City has come from years of influence from music, movies, and TV. "The city that never sleeps", "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere", "Anything can happen in a New York minute." It's always prided itself as the place to be, and that bold mystique is what draws me to it. Why it's on my Bucket List: As a Canadian, New York City is the iconic symbol of the USA. It's a melting pot of culture and characters from all walks of life. I want to be in the heart of it, rent a bike and explore spontaneously during the day. Reserve the evenings for itinerary-type things on one of Seeker's NYC lists. When I do plan my trip to New York it will be with a big budget set aside for indulgence. I believe this is not a place to shoe-string it.

The Empire State is the latest domino to fall in our path towards federal legalized recreational Marijuana use. On March 31, 2021, New York became the 16th 420 friendly state with its passage of legalized recreational marijuana use. “The bill allows for individuals 21 and older to possess up to 3 ounces of cannabis and 24 grams of cannabis concentrate outside the home. It also allows for individuals to grow up to six plants in their homes—three mature plants and three immature plants—with a cap of six mature plants and six immature plants per household.” While it is too early to tell exactly what’s in store for weed tourism in New York, big things are likely to follow. The state already has an extensive network of medical dispensaries. Currently, an ounce of weed in New York will cost you $339.49.

New York is the ultimate destination for music lovers. While Chicago, Kansas City, and New Orleans were pivotal in the early years of jazz, the Big Apple’s jazz scene is as hot as ever with iconic venues like Birdland Jazz Club, The Iridium, and Village Vanguard. It’s also where hip-hop was born and home to neon-lit Broadway theaters where ballads are belted at matinees and evening shows. From dive bars and open mic nights to jam-packed jazz clubs to the operatic overtures at The Metropolitan Opera, New York City is a musical feast unlike any other.

Art lovers can watch paintings come to life at CurlFest’s Arts District. There’s truly something for everyone at CurlFest making it feel more like a family reunion than a festival.

NYC is the birthplace of Pride, so it only makes sense that it’s high up on this list. The Stonewall Riots were started in 1969 by Black trans activist, Marsha P. Johnson (Marsha is credited with throwing the first brick). Fed up with the constant harassment and brutality from the police, patrons at Stonewall said enough was enough and took a stand for their rights. This moment in LGBTQIA+ history paved the way for Pride celebrations all over the world and is why we celebrate Pride in June each year. Aside from being a place of significance in history, the city has been a long-standing haven for the LGBTQIA+ community where they can feel accepted and authentically themselves.

As an avid fan of The Lizzie McGuire movie, I have long fantasized about riding on the back of a Vespa through the streets of Rome. Wind blowing through my hair, hands on the waist of someone I have a major crush on – ah, bliss. With the Revel app, you can coast through the New York City streets on a Vespa without having to make the major investment of buying one. Save you (and your date) time by downloading the app on your phone ahead of time and taking the short introductory course. The app will tell you where the closest scooter is, you take a quick snapshot, throw on your helmets, and off you go! What a way to sweep them off their feet, am I right?

Many cities in the USA go all out when it comes to Chinese New Year, but the biggest celebrations are by far the ones in New York and San Francisco. In New York, you can expect to see martial arts performers, dancers, colourful outfits, and a dragon parade that heads down Mott and Canal Street on to East Broadway, Manhattan Bridge, Sara D. Roosevelt Park, and ends on Grand Street. It’s almost impossible to miss the gigantic and gorgeous display of music, dancers, floats, and dragons.

For any glamorous mother, NYC is the best metropolitan destination to get lost together in the busy city. It is no secret that New York has amazing food, exciting activities, and plenty of sites to see. We recommend booking a late morning brunch at Poco with bottomless mimosa to live like a *true* New Yorker, checking out some boutique galleries in Chelsea, and then hitting broadway to enjoy one of the countless world-class performances showing every day. If you haven't already, get tickets to one of the classics- Moulin Rouge, Chicago, or even Wicked for an unforgettable evening.

Growing up on movies like Home Alone, Miracle on 34th street, and Elf has shaped New York to be what I imagine one of the most magical Christmas experiences in the world.

I describe NYC as a "beautiful mess". This city stole my heart, I remember the first day we went on top of the Rockefeller Center and I cried. Right after the sunset and way too many photos, I stopped for a second to actually take it all in. I got super emotional and found myself tearing up. I was so happy, I never felt more alive. The best moments in life are when you take a moment to stop and really observe the space around you.
