New York City is mostly known as the city that never sleeps. That’s because there are so many different things going on in the city at any given time that you could run yourself ragged trying to do them all! New York City is also known as one of the most expensive cities in not only the United States, but also the world, so doing all those exciting activities, unfortunately can really add up.

When you think road trip, what comes to mind? Maybe a classic car, convertible open, cruising down the old dusty Route 66. Sounds pretty great, right? Well, you can still do it, and thousands of people love to take this classic ride every year.
We all know that classic movie from our youth, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, where Ferris (played by a young Matthew Broderick) decides to skip school for a day and gets into all sorts of fun and hijinks in Chicago. We liked that movie so much, we figured you can do the same thing too!
The Hudson River Valley in New York is rich in history, nature and fun things to do. The Hudson River, named after the explorer Henry Hudson, stretches from New York City to well past the state capital in Albany. The river region is divided up into the Upper Hudson Valley, Mid-Hudson Valley, and Lower Hudson Valley. The Lower Hudson Valley is an hour drive north of New York City. On the contrary, the Mid-Hudson Valley is approximately two hours north of the city. Within the short driving distance, there is so much to see and do year round.
Travelers are on the move and on their way to New York City. During an economic climate that has been characterized by an increase in unemployment and home foreclosures, it seems people are still hitting the roads to visit the Big Apple.
Looking for something unique to do around the Tampa Bay area? If you’ve already been to a Buccaneers game, ate too many peanuts at a Devil Ray’s game and later made them re-appear on Busch Garden’s Sheikra, perhaps it’s time to switch it up and discover one of the area’s hidden treasures. Grab the kiddies, the girlfriend or old college buddies, and head over to Weeki Wachee Springs.
