If you are thinking about going to NYC on vacation, you should consider conducting a thorough investigation into all aspects of your stay. For instance, do you know what the customer satisfaction level is with the hotel you are staying at? How convenient is your hotel to the attractions you plan to visit? What restaurants do you plan to eat at in NYC and do they require reservations in advance? What are your priorities as far as attractions you want to visit? Do you want to go see a Broadway show? If so, would you rather pay premium prices for premium seats, or would you rather save money and buy discount tickets to one of the less-popular shows? Do you have time to visit museums? If so, which museums would you prefer to visit? All of these questions are important to address in advance of your trip to New York City to save you time and frustration while you are on vacation in New York.
