The ultimate 3 day NYC itinerary with a downloadable PDF!

By: Sarah

There is so much to do in NYC that it can be overwhelming planning a trip. As a New Yorker and travel expert, I’ve put together a 3 day guide on what you can’t miss if you’re visiting the city for a short period of time. Watch the video and download the itinerary below to make your trip to NYC your best trip yet!

This guide will break down each of the 3 days by morning, midday, afternoon, and evening. I do recommend spending at least a week in New York because there is so much to do here. However, if you are short on time this guide will help you make the most of your trip.

NYC is an expensive city, so I recommend you budget $300 to $500 per person, per day for dining, attractions, transportation, and experiences. This also includes lodging costs for $120 per night factored in, which is what the average cost per night of a good Airbnb. That is my recommended lodging of choice. If you have never used Airbnb, you can use my link to save $40 on your first stay.

Since three days is not a lot of time in the city, I recommend using Lyft to make the most of your time here. Lyft is a the largest growing ride share company in the US. They make it easy to call a car to wherever you are located and make your trip to the city much more comfortable - because let’s be real, our subway system isn’t the most glamorous experience! Use my code FUNK66734 to save $5 on your first Lyft ride.
