I’m not talking about the Empire State Building.

I’m a strong believer that, although yes, it is great to go up iconic buildings (for example, the Eiffel Tower, the London Eye…) but it is never the best view of the city.

If you’re looking for that picture perfect moment in that iconic city, then what’s the point if you can’t see the most iconic building in view?SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThat’s why, during my long visit to the bustling city of New York, we went to the Rockefeller Centre (aka Top of the Rock) for one of the best views in the world.

Not only can you view the Empire State Building towering over the other skyscrapers, but you get the perfect view of Central Park…

There are numerous viewing points/floors, too, so you get the best experience.

My highlight was climbing right to the top and getting an open air view of the entire, spectacular  city, without any glass hindering the scenery.

So sure, head up to the Empire State Building for the experience. But head up to the Rockefeller Centre for the best view of all.

You don’t always need to venture down south to have a beach day.

Maine isn’t known for being the beach destination, but it sure is ‘Vacationland’.

During my time in Maine, me and three of my girls that were amazing enough to take the British tourist around, spent spent a day exploring beaches and towns.

Hills Beach in Biddeford Maine is a long stretch of sandy beach. Follow the grassy sand dunes down to the coast and take in the quietness of the coastline and the pine tree views from a distance.

Not only did we sunbathe, but I had the real USA experience with a fire on the beach and had my first ever s’more…

The beach and a bestie can’t get much better!

When the sand and sun gets too much, perhaps take the short drive towards gorgeous Kennebunkport for the cutest shops and bars.

Kennebunkport is a town in in York County, Maine, and is perfect for a little gift shopping and strolling around the port. See masted ships and boats line the panelled – and surprisingly for the USA – quite old buildings. Unsurprisingly though, the town is as charming and gorge as the rest of Maine!
