New York City is simply the greatest place ever (just ask any New Yorker during Springtime). If you're on a budget, don’t feel like spending a week on an overcrowded beach, or treating your credit card to overpriced cocktails during spring break, then planning a staycation in the city will be a thrilling adventure on its own. Inside such an international city, morning strolls through a park or museum with long coffee breaks in between can transport you to different parts of the world, no renewal of passport needed.
