Travel is looking a lot better this summer — with more people willing to travel — I’m here to tell you that New York City is officially open to travelers and, most importantly, has implemented COVID-19 protocols across town!
This last week, I had the opportunity to travel to New York City! New York is one of my favorite cities to visit; it’s always so lively and fun! From beautiful rooftops, delicious grub, and picturesque parks, there’s never a dull moment!
And with summer just around the corner, I bet you will be adding NYC to your travel bucket list! So to help you get ready for your next New York City trip, I will start out by sharing my 3 BEST Rooftop Bars that just reopened for the upcoming summer —
