How about a flight across the United States from the West Coast to the East Coast? If you live in or near Los Angeles and you feel like all that heat and sun is getting you down, cool off a bit in New York. Christmas is approaching fast, and New York has never been a city to spare money on Christmas decorations. So if you want to see the Big Apple in all its splendor of Christmas lights and sparkles, this is the right time to visit. And since many people have already started thinking about buying Christmas presents, maybe it’s time you started planning too. Shopping in New York is like a dream come true for any shopping addict. There are so many shops and brands to choose from that you can spend weeks and weeks going from shop to shop and still not get bored. And if you are more inclined towards cultural attractions than shopping experiences, you definitely won’t be disappointed in New York. Theaters, independent cinemas, exhibitions and museums are in no short supply in the Big Apple. And if you’ve had your fill of high-end shops and exciting museums, you can always take a walk in Central Park, feed the ducks and enjoy the few weeks of autumn weather before the chill sets in. And all this for only $239 from LA to NY and back. More details here.
