Early on in the planning Mr. Gazelle and I knew that we would like to go on a honeymoon as soon as possible after the wedding. Time would be limited though. We have to take time off before the wedding to travel to it, so we only have a few days after the wedding to take a trip. As much as we might have liked to wax poetic about a honeymoon to Europe we knew it wasn’t possible. We didn’t want to put off a honeymoon till later in the year when we might be able to take more time off as we were worried something would come up and we’d never go on that honeymoon.
So instead we focused on someplace we could go reasonably close by right after the wedding, i.e. in North America. Beaches were out as we weren’t looking to relax, but were looking to see someplace cool.
I’ve been before, but this will be Mr. Gazelle’s first visit to the Big Apple. We’ve booked our flights through air miles to keep costs down (and since I had a ridiculous amount available to use). We also sat down and made a decision on our hotel recently too – The Distrikt. The reviews on TripAdvisor are really good, the location looks to be smack dab in the middle of everything, and the price was right (key for New York City).
What to do in NYC?
On the absolute must do list for Future Hubs is the American Museum of Natural History.

On my list is Wicked… (tickets may have already been procured as I did not want to miss out…)

For those of you around New York City (or who go there frequently), please help a Gazelle out! Do you have any suggestions on places to go, things to see or ideas of where to eat?
