Traveling to New York was an awesome experience. I traveled to New York for a weekend to sightsee and to shop. While I was there, I visited monumental places such as the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, Empire State building, and Times Square. The culture is different for me because I grew up down south and in a country area. My summers were spent outdoors. I have always dreamed of not only visiting a big city, but living in a big city. The best part about dreaming is many dreams come true because I now live in a big city. I visited the Diamond District while in New York. Of course, I did a lot of window shopping. Did someone mention chocolate? They did at the Hershey Chocolate Store in New York. I literally bought the entire store. Ok, I did not buy the entire store, but I wanted to because the candy was so daring.
One of my favorite movies is Forrest Gump. Who doesn’t remember the Bubba Gump Shrimping Boat? Above you will see a photo of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. which was named after the movie characters Bubba Blue and Forrest Gump. Such an awesome movie. One memorable moment was looking over the Hudson river. I was so excited to be in New York. I had a great time and I plan on visiting again soon.
