Vacationing sounds good but,..
Most people think that vacationing is an idea that only happens when the stars line up but we beg to differ. Vacationing happens when you say so or at least when you decide to plan it out.
Outlined underneath are five resource links that can help you achieve your goals of vacationing sooner rather than later.
"It's too expensive!" This is probably the most common reason why vacationing never happens and we agree but before we co-sign that excuse let's just find out how much the flight and hotel will cost.
"I can't afford it!" Got it! You want to go but you don't know how to pay for it. Do a reverse layaway. Put it on a low interest rate credit card then pay it off afterwards. It really is that simple. Here is a link to some really great credit card offers. Now book your trip and enjoy.
There are many photo opportunities in this eclectic intersection full of entertainment because of the countless activities that Times Square offers. Take pictures with Madame Tussauds' wax figures or the shiny billboards. As you walk down the street, keep your camera at the ready to capture the street performers and people dressed as well-known characters. One of the top tourist destinations in New York City has a ton of things to do and see. Although it is nearly impossible to take pictures in Times Square without people in them, the chaos kind of enhances the image.

The three-and-a-half-ton bronze sculpture The Charging Bull, also known as the Wall Street Bull, was created by artist Arturo Di Modica and is displayed with pride in New York City's financial district. The bull represents the spirit of New York, where anyone can arrive, work hard, and succeed, and it stands for "the power of the American people". The decision to use a charging bull is not random. The bull is a representation of a robust stock market where investors are upbeat and self-assured. According to the theory, investors who are in a euphoric mood tend to buy more and more, which raises the market. Don't pass up the opportunity to take pictures with that well-known bull!

A chance to experience New York City's highest point is available at One World Observatory. The observatory's decks are on floors 100 and 101, so getting there requires an elevator ride above New York. The Statue of Liberty and all the way up to Central Park can be seen from the deck on the 100th floor. While the top deck is not accessible to the general public, it does offer visitors a chance to ascend there via a unique access route. There are many opportunities for stunning Instagram selfies here.

Welcome to a brand-new attraction in New York City! The Vessel has garnered a ton of interest, especially on Instagram, thanks to its distinctive Bee hive-like shape. The Vessel is now impossible to climb. The Vessel can still be photographed from a lot of really cool angles even if you are unable to climb it. Furthermore, you won't want to skip visiting the Hudson Yards because it is the newest hot spot in the city. While you're there, stroll down The High Line (near Hudson Yards) to the Chelsea Market for some food and to get a feel for the city like a local.
