I'm off on holiday to the United States so I would love some advice and hints and tips from my American cousins on TPF or just anyone who has been to/lives in Ny, Miami or Key West. I have my hotels sorted but would particularly like ideas of good places to eat and where I should go sight see. Of course I have my lonely planet book but I always think local knowledge is a good thing! I leave in about two weeks and go to NY for 4 nights. We (my BF is coming too) are staying right near Times Square. As I said recommendations for eats would be great and where should I go sightsee when there? Also I would love to know about shopping - I want to check out Century 21 as I have heard that it has great designer stuff at discount- do you NY girls think it is worth a visit? i would love to go vintage clothes shopping too - where are the best vintage shops? Sadly I won't be able to make any big bag purchases having already abused my credit card ! Then i'm off to Miami for 6 nights and Key West for 4 nights so anyone from these places please advise! I am staying in South Beach on Ocean Drive so again restaurants and things to go see would be good. Also the weather - I assume NY will be a little chilly at the end of October but will Miami be really hot or just a bit hot? Thank you all so much in advance for you help and suggestions - I am very excited!!!! I just love to visit America!
