How many days can you take off?
Is minyan an issue?
Can you stay over Shabbos, or does it need to be mid-week?

Thank you for all your help. I’m a young girl from new York area. Since I’m at the age where either my friends are married, in college or working it’s not working out with ANY of them. I wish I could go with a friend. Also, since I’m alone im not going anywhere over night or for a shabbos. I need ideas of things to do by day that can be done on my own and still have a good time.July 28, 2011 3:30 am at 3:30 am #791831
Budget isn’t really to big of an issue, but not spending a fortune either.July 28, 2011 12:48 pm at 12:48 pm #791833mommamia22Participant
I think you need to figure out what “feels” like a vacation to you. Although I’d have fun in the city, it would not feel like a vacation to me. There’s a website you might want to check out called Time Out New York (www.Tony.com). They also have one for kids called tonykids.com. It lists all the different activities in and around new York (Tri-State area included) and divides it by day trips, weekend trips, free events, festivals etc..
You might find something there.July 28, 2011 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #791834The last RebelMember

Its going to happen that im “finding” new friends and then going on a mini vacation with them. it doesnt have to be a “vacation” either, i would just like to take a day off. the last time i took off from work was in the begining of the year. i love NYC, but not sure of things to do on my own.July 28, 2011 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #791839
mewho- thank you. i will definitely look into those options, it sounds enjoyable to me.
you have a specific 3 hour boat ride in mind?July 28, 2011 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #791840
for me vacation is doing outdoor activities- swimming, boating, hiking, beach…. and then sleeping in a hotelJuly 28, 2011 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #791841
adorable, I think most people going on vacation like doing those things, that’s what i would love to do. the point of this thread though is that i cant do those things myself.
tech. I could really go to the beach. thanks for that!July 28, 2011 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #791842
where do you live?July 28, 2011 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #791843

i feel for you. i have the same exact issue. if this site was not so “kosher” and i would know who you are we could plan somethingJuly 28, 2011 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #791845onlytruthMember
I have the same issue. No one to do anything FUN with. Friends are married others are not the type to do FUN things… 🙁July 28, 2011 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #791846
oh well. but i would still like to hear some more ideas though if anyone can come up with anything.July 28, 2011 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #791847bptParticipant

deedeeluver, i know EXACTLY how u feel! what i usually end up doing is going for a manicure!July 29, 2011 7:53 am at 7:53 am #791851haifagirlParticipant
I much prefer going places by myself. I guess I’m selfish.July 29, 2011 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #791852
haifagirl- i would also much more prefer going places myself, i have always been like that. but there is a limit to what can be done by yourself. theres shopping and sightseeing. and going for manicures which i love doing myself. i dont think its selfish.July 29, 2011 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #791853haifagirlParticipant
. . . there is a limit to what can be done by yourself.
There is? What is it?
