Next time you’re in NYC, why not go see an opera? The tickets are surprisingly affordable (from $30). And even if you’re not an opera fan, this is a unique and interesting experience.
👉 The Metropolitan Opera (NYC)
Funnily enough, this tip came as a recommendation from Andy Ihnatko on a tech podcast. Listen in at this spot for more inspiration about the opera. 🤷🏻♂️

This is a great quick guide on exploring a city in a more spontaneous and fun way than just rushing between pre-planned sites. Explore and have fun!
👉 How to ditch an itinerary and discover a city
- Research, ask around — ask your Uber driver, check local Instagram accounts
- Be present — look around, pay attention to signs
- Map a Google map — Yes! I always do this on a big trip. It’s fun and helpful. (NYC example)
- Avoid making reservations — give yourself some flexibility
- Walk different routes — go one way, come back the other way
I also liked that the cover art and some of the story mentions Austin as an example, mentioning legit local places like the Hope Outdoor Gallery and Caffe Medici. 😀
New York City’s (and the world’s) largest and most excellent train station has some sekrits.
