Once we landed at the LaGuardia Airport in New York City, we got in a taxi line, but it was ridiculously long! So we found a car service and called them and they picked us up in 15 minutes! I’ll have to remember that the next time we head to the Big Apple! (And they weren’t that much more than what a taxi would have been!)
We then headed to check into our hotel–the Holiday Inn (125 W. 26th Street). It was a pretty new hotel, but the rooms were TINY! We had four of us girls staying in one of the rooms. We had to do a little strategic rearranging to get all of our bags to fit and Megan had to unpack hers so we could put it up on top of the “closet”. We made it work though. Even though the room was very small, they made up for it with mirrors and outlets in the bedroom part so we had plenty of room to get ready. And it wasn’t like we were going to spend much time in our room anyway!
After we unpacked and freshened up, we headed out to find a place to eat since we were all starving! The gentleman at the front desk recommended the Italian restaurant right across the street from our hotel. He said we will come back smiling. So we decided to check it out. It was called Tre Dici’s and it was wonderful! For an appetizer we ordered the special for the night which was Firecracker Calamari. It was kind of like mixing hot wings with fried calamari. YUM! The rest of our food was excellent too!
After that great dinner, we decided to do a little walking, so we headed north up to Times Square. By the time we walked from 26th Street to 42nd Street it started to mist and then rain lightly, so we headed home. We were all really tired anyways from getting up at 4am that morning!

When we got back to our hotel we all went to bed right away because we had to get up at 4:30am the next morning to go see Good Morning America!
Stay tuned for Day 2 in the city tomorrow!
