It’s a travel experience that ranks high on many people’s bucket lists: a trip to New York City to see a Broadway show, eat amazing food and stay at a fancy hotel. To, as George Costanza might say, “do it classy.”
It’s also, as New York experiences tend to be, really expensive.
A nice hotel in NYC can cost more than $250 a night. A Broadway show? At least $100 a ticket. An amazing meal? $200 for two. Drinks? $15-$20 a pop. Add to that taxi fares, plane tickets and taxes and the price tag of this trip gets really high really fast.
Which is why I’m going to suggest something fairly radical. If you can’t afford to do the swanky NYC weekend thing at the moment (and hey, not many of us can!), you should re-route and do a swanky Broadway weekend in Omaha, Nebraska, instead.
