I’m born and raised in NYC. This post is for anyone who wants to experience the best of New York on a tight budget ($10 or less) through the eyes of a native New Yorker. Although some things on here are meant to be crowd-pleasers, I’ve tried to bring you to corners of New York where you’ll start see the quieter, charming parts of New York that are off the beaten path. I’ll be covering getting to NYC on a budget, public transit in NYC, where to stay in NYC on a budget, and CHEAP things to do in NYC. Read more to read about my favorite 20 places for visiting the Big Apple like a local (by borough). (Updated June 8, 2017)
People always talk about epic road trips around the US, but why not around a country full of incredible natural beauty, history, and modern cities? Luckily, Israel isn’t too big, so the road trip can be shorter. If you follow this trip, you’ll see Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, snorkel in the Red Sea, explore Roman ruins, swim in the Mediterranean Sea, explore old caves, hike in the Negev, see wild ibex, and experience the spiritual side of Israel.
There’s two parts to the trip: North & South, both linking up at Tel Aviv. The last section discusses driving conditions/travel basics. Read more below although be warned that this post is a little long with lots of beautiful photos!
