A must see if you are a Civil War enthusiast or simply interested in the history of New York City. It is best to visit the cemetery with a guided tour.

Manhattan can be very noisy and the Brooklyn Botanic garden is the best place to hide and escape for the noise of the city. It is beautiful all year round but even more when the cherry blossoms and rose garden are in bloom. Exterior grounds are beautiful and there always indoor exhibits.

Where to stay when in Brooklyn?

Manhattan hotel rooms are sometimes very hard to find and pricey. An alternative is to look for accommodation in Brooklyn. One of my favorite places to stay is The Condor Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Not only are rooms more affordable but it is easy to grab a cab or to access the subway.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. Nelmitravel.com is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.

Thank you for visiting. Have a fabulous day!
