Visiting the city during the break helped me remember why some consider New York City to be the best city in the world. Setting record highs, the Big Apple hosted 60.3 million tourists last year and is expected to welcome even more this year. This vibrant city will forever be bustling with visitors, locals, and a lot of traffic. No matter what your interests are, it's an easy task to remain occupied and have loads of fun.

1. The Subway

Home to one of the most historic public transit systems, the New York City subway can quickly and easily get you to any destination with a $2.75 MetroCard purchase. Along with the speedy commute make sure to enjoy one of the more than 350 soloists and groups performing underground.

2. The Food

From curbside eats to upscale dining, you can find good quality food on any corner on any budget. Don't forget to treat yourself with a stop at any street food cart in Manhattan. You can't go wrong with a hot salted pretzel or some honey roasted nuts.

3. The Entertainment

From the variety of broadway shows to the countless museums, there is something for anyone of any age to enjoy. Be sure to check out Broadway must sees: The Lion King and Wicked, as well as the largest museum in the US: The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The city also gives great opportunities for seeing morning and late night talk shows including Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and Saturday Night Live.

4. The History

While sight-seeing, take some time to indulge in the fascinating history the city has to offer. Whether that be the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, or the Empire State Building there is definitely a lot to learn about the past.

5. The Views

The New York City skyline never disappoints. Take in exceptional sights from the Top of the Rock Observatory, the newly added High Line, the One World Observatory, or any other perch within the city.

6. The People

Every street you walk down you hear someone speaking with a different accent or a complete different language. New York is a clear representation of the nation as a whole: diverse and containing people from all cultures and walks of life.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
