Different countries, cities and towns are known for certain things. Some are bad, while others are good. However, they usually stem off stereotypes and/or one’s experience that is then used as a standard. New York City is no different.

When living in a major city like New York or Chicago, it is good to take a weekend getaway or a day trip outside of your major city. This is a must do even when just visiting.
