Under $100 / North America

Start your day in Brooklyn with breakfast at a cozy, hidden spot — The Little Sweet Cafe. The French-inspired eatery serves sweet and savory crêpes, along with a tantalizing and seemingly endless array of pastries. Top your breakfast off with either fresh coffee or a mimosa and grab the lone table next to the window to people watch. Your breakfast will be less than $15.


For another few dollars, you can get a ticket to the New York Transit Museum and spend the morning exploring the history of transportation in New York, from the expansive subway system to the life of a modern bus driver. Easily the coolest feature, though, is the collection of vintage trains, beautifully restored and still sitting on live tracks on the museum’s lowest level.


Grab a snack and a mid-day drink at The Hilton Brooklyn New York, just a few steps away. The downstairs bar and lounge offers drinks and a limited menu of light snacks, perfectly portioned for lunch. The quiet environment is relaxed enough that you can easily check a few emails if you’re traveling alone or enjoy some laid-back conversation with your traveling companion.


Another lunch or dinner option is Sottocasa, where you can get your Brooklyn pizza fix. The small and intimate eatery specializes in Neapolitan pizza and the servings are huge, but you’ll still want to get two of the multitude of pizza options to share, along with a little Italian beer and wine.


Visit one of the most popular arenas in the country, the Barclays Center, in the evening. Catch a Nets game, or, if you’re not into basketball, check the calendar for upcoming headliner concerts, including Cher (May 2), Twenty One Pilots (June 4) and Ariana Grande (June 14 and 15).
