If you are planning to visit NYC during the holidays, check out all the links on the right side of the page under “Travel Links for Au Pairs.” There are lots of links with info on visiting NYC.
I just found out that Times Square has it’s own website with lots of great information. Check out the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) HERE.
I just saw this website and thought it would be great if you are planning a trip to NYC. I don’t see a map of Washington, DC available. But, they do offer other cities such as Boston and San Francisco.
What I find interesting is that you can view the city like you would a mall directory. You can see what stores, restaurants and buildings are along the streets.

Au Pair Contest: First au pair in my cluster to email me (or send me a message on Facebook) with the name of their favorite U.S. city to visit will win a prize. Contest is closed – The winner is Tina!!!

I came across a great article in the Sunday Washington Post travel section about hostels in New York City. NYC is famous for a lot of things and expensive hotel rooms is one of them. Hostels have long been a popular lodging option for au pairs. This article reviews several of the hostels in NYC. Check it out here.
Check on the lower right side of my blog for travel links for au pairs. You will find links for some of the bus companies that travel between the DC area and NYC. With one of those and a youth hostel, you can put together an inexpensive weekend getaway to experience NYC.
If you are planning a trip to NYC or anywhere else, I recommend you sign up for Groupon and Living Social. You can receive daily deals for the cities of your choice. They also have Groupon & Living Social apps for your mobile phone and iPod.
