Five Fancy Things to Do in NYC
Dine at Sushi Yasuda
Next to Japan, New York is known for having some of the best sushi in the world. When we lived in New York, we made it a regular ritual to explore local sushi places. If you’re truly feeling like a million bucks, then dinner at Sushi Yasuda will not disappoint. Never been to the Land of the Rising Sun? That’s okay, because Sushi Yasuda flies fish in all the way from Japan and serves it fresh daily. For a true experience, try the omakase, which is a chef-selected menu.
Shop Till You Drop
Everyone knows that New York is one of the shopping capitals of the world. If you’re looking for new fall outfits, then you’ll have an easy time finding clothes in Manhattan. Strolling down Fifth Avenue and popping into Bergdorf Goodman might hurt your wallet, but the amazing clothes will make the spending worthwhile.
Sail New York Harbor
Catch Manhattan from a whole different viewpoint, and sail along the Hudson on your own yacht! There’s nothing that screams fancy quite like a yacht. Board the yacht like a rockstar, and drink, eat, dance, and sail the night away!
Pamper Yourself at the Waldorf-Astoria Guerlain Spa
You didn’t think you would shop, eat, and sail in New York without a trip to one of the finest spas in town, did you? The white-marbled Waldorf-Astoria Guerlain Spa makes visitors feel like royalty from the second they step inside. A floor-to-ceiling crystal chandelier at the entrance, silver-tiled walls, and top-of-the-line furniture await guests. The spa is run by talented professionals who are the best of the best at facials, massages, and makeup. Book ahead, and make sure to look your best for a night at the opera.
Head to Lincoln Center
Speaking of the opera, hail a cab to Lincoln Center, where you can see some of the world’s best performers. A night at the Metropolitan Opera House will leave your ears filled with joy. At the David H. Koch Theater right across the way, the New York City ballet dancers will leave you speechless with their exquisite moves.
