Mystic: A maritime village


Mystic, Connecticut is only 2.5 hours away from New York City. It’s a great getaway from the busy city life and makes a good one-day or overnight destination The Mystic Seaport outdoor museum is big enough to hang out for an entire day, and the Mystic Aquarium is a fun spot for the family. Also, the Olde Mistick Village next to the aquarium has some neat shops and is pleasant to walk around.

Holiday Market at Columbus Circle


Columbus Circle is built in 1905 and as part of Central Park. It is the southwestern entrance to the park and New York City’s media and entertainment center. During the holiday season, a cute market is set up here, and it looks like a delicate little town inside a magnificent big city. Shopping in the big malls is dazzling to the eyes, while wandering through small markets is warming to the hearts.

There are many ways to enjoy New York City, one of which is to look up. New York has many beautiful historic buildings, but it is easy to miss them while shuffling through shops and restaurants, going in and out of the subway station. We could bury ourselves among the busy traffic and confused crowd, or look up and find unexpected treasures extending up to the sky.
