Metropolitan Museum of Art
in New York

I never get tired of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. If you get caught in NYC on a rainy day, then head over to Fifth Avenue and 81st Street.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the most extensive Egyptian artifact exhibits that I know of and they have rebuilt a temple that was rescued from a river in Egypt since the river was slowly over taking it. The Temple was given to the U.S. as a gift from Egypt in 1965.

I went to several very fancy events in the Temple of Dendur Room when I was a TV producer in New York so I have very fond memories of the Met. It's also located right off of Central Park and is on my list of top five New York City attractions.

Book Your Trip

Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate.
