My husband and I will be in New York at the end of July for the Liverpool game at Yankee Stadium. The game is on July 30 in the evening, but we want to use most of July 28th and 29th seeing other attractions. We also want to make sure that we are being smart about the hotel we choose...so my questions are:
1. NJ hotels are a bit cheaper, however we would have to spend more money on transportation to get into town. Would we save more money staying in town?
2. Are there any hotels in the range of $150 per night that we could get in town?
3. Which sights would be the best to see during out limited stay? We are in our early 30s and are fairly open to just about anything.
We are from Louisiana, so we are not accustomed to taking public transit -- but we are excited about learning! So feel free to give us tips about that, too.
Thanks so much!!!
