Spring Break is finally here and we are heading out of town soon. But for these few days we are home, I wanted to try some new stuff and explore NYC a bit more. My kids are finally old enough to spend the day walking around Manhattan – without too much complaining! They love visiting new exhibits and attractions – especially anything that involves science or animals! We were super excited to be invited to visit the Nat Geo Encounter Ocean Odyssey in Times Square and include that in our spring break plans. If you are heading to Manhattan, this should for sure be on your to-do list!
Momma To Go would like to thank the National Geographic Encounter for hosting our visit. As always, all opinions are my own.
Over Christmas break, I wanted to take the kids into the city to see the tree in Rockefeller Center. But I also wanted to do something else, something new (new to us at least) and different. I looked into the three pop-ups that are currently going on, Candytopia, Color Factory and the Trolls Experience. Honestly, we went to Trolls because it was the one of the three that wasn’t sold out for our date and it was close to Rockefeller Center. We had a great time at the Trolls Experience NYC and I’m excited to share our review with you.
One of my favorite NYC things to do is a visit to the New York Hall of Science located in the borough of Queens. When little man was small, we lived just a few miles away from the Hall of Science. For many years we had a membership and would visit often – mostly to play in the Preschool play space. Since moving to Long Island we have only been back to the Hall of a Science a few times, but we were excited to be recently invited to come check it out!
Momma to Go (and especially little man and baby girl) would like to thank the New York Hall of Science for hosting our visit. We were given member passes which included complimentary parking and coat check. As always, all opinions are my own.
Recently, I’ve been flying a lot. In January I went to Cary, North Carolina and Ft. Myers, Florida. Hubby and I love the thrill of getting a low plane fare- we have lots of great tips and tricks for getting cheap & free flights (Which I really need to share soon!). We are lucky to have three airports that serve our area, LaGuardia, JFK and Islip-MacArthur. That alone gives us lots of travel options – but with all things being equal we always try to fly out of JFK. There are so many options to get there, it’s really the most convenient for us. And for that reason, people are always asking me about getting from JFK to Manhattan, or about transportation from JFK to NYC! So I put this post together to help making getting to and from JFK airport a breeze! I’m so excited to share all these great tips for getting to and from JFK like true New Yorker!

What could make for a better holiday present than an American Girl Doll AND a trip for Tea at American Girl Cafe NYC?
On December 25, 2017, Santa came down our chimney and left this under tree for baby girl:
And in her stocking, baby girl found this:
Talk about making a 6-year old girl’s Christmas wish come true! TIMES 2!!!!!
Baby girl was super excited to receive her Maryellen doll (and a starter wardrobe for her American Girl). And I, always up for an adventure, was pretty excited about heading to Afternoon Tea at the American Girl NYC Cafe!
Baby Girl and I would like to thank American Girl for hosting us to facilitate this honest review. As always, opinions are all my own.
