A New York Escape from the Houston Heat
It’s a common conversation between Houston residents; discussing vacation destinations as a means of escaping the summer heat. Chronically dehydrated Houstonians, eager for the ability to step out of a building and avoid being instantly blinded by opaque humidity. To forget that soggy feeling of sweat collecting in every nook and cranny on a simple walk from your car into the grocery store.
New York has been on my domestic travel list for quite some time. I’ve visited many times as a child, but never as an adult. Most of those trips were to visit my grandmother in Long Island. They were filled with family time and occasionally a trip into the city, to the theater. Today, when I think of New York I first imagine a winterscape. Giant Christmas trees, ice skating rinks and snowy streets filled with bustling city dwellers, donning fabulous heavy coats, scarves and boots. While this is an adequate illustration for some of the year, New York also offers an enticing backdrop for some end of summer festivities.
I discovered a number of vacation-worthy events in reading a blog post from BusyBee Cleaning Service, a local New York City business. Though this article was written in 2015, the majority of events are still reoccurring annually.

Even more attractions included in BusyBee’s post, End of Summer Fun In NYC:
This year, my family and I will actually be taking a trip to one of the few places HOTTER than Houston in the summer, Florida. I hope those of you reading this find the opportunity for some relief by visiting New York before its dwellers will be looking for an escape from the blistering cold!
