It’s March 14, and you’re in desperate need of somewhere to go for Spring Break.

It’s just your luck because in New York City you can have a four day trip for under $100.

From living arrangements to places to eat, you can have a cheap and fun spring break trip. So grab three friends and get ready to travel.

For four days and three nights, you can stay at The Continental Hostel in the Upper West Side of Manhattan for a grand total of $92, taxes included.

While a hostel is nothing compared to a hotel, it gets the job done. A bunk bed, a chair, and a closet are provided in a 14-foot-by-7-foot room.

Sharing a bathroom with three to four other rooms is another downside to getting a hostel. The bathrooms are kept clean; just don’t forget flip-flops for the shower.

Another plus to staying at the Continental is that it is 12 blocks from Tom’s Restaurant, which is widely known as the restaurant that frequently appeared in the show Seinfeld.

Tom’s offers great food at very reasonable prices. For another cheap but different style of food, try Oriental Dumplings in Manhattan’s Chelsea region.

Prices for the meals range from seven dumplings for $5.55 to nine dumplings for $7.77. It’s an inexpensive and a filling, tasty meal.

Getting a tour guidebook is ideal for this trip.

Not For Tourists 2008 Guide to New York City shows every little thing possible to do in Manhattan.

Subway routes, cheap restaurants and attractions are all plotted and marked on the individual maps for every section of the city.

But, if you’re not willing to go out to Borders and buy a book, the website www.nycvisit.com is a fabulous choice.

With daily updates on what to do, promotions rewarded after looking at the website and insider tips from locals, you can’t go wrong by taking a gander at this innovative website.

Free and low-priced activities or sites are just a subway ride away. The Metropolitan Museum is located off the Upper East Side of Central Park. The suggested fee is $20, but since cheap college kids and tourists frequent the area, a $1 donation is accepted.

When considering what vehicle to take on this 440 mile trip, make sure it’s one with great gas mileage.

With Manhattan being around seven hours and 20 minutes away from Akron, Ohio you can expect to pay about $20 per person round trip if you have four people in a car.

Once you’ve made it to the city, steer away from taxis, they will murder your wallet, and the crazy driving alone will make you fear for your life.

Walk a block or two until you find a subway and buy yourself a Metro Card, a single ride costs $2, but if you buy five, you get one free.

That is everything you need to have a fabulous and interesting Spring Break trip in New York City. Book your hostel, save your money and make sure to pack your digital camera. When you’re in such a spectacular city, there are many photo opportunities.
