Under $100 / North America

From fresh pasta to lively street fairs, the streets of Little Italy in New York City have much to offer tourists looking for a European experience while staying in the United States.

Visiting Little Italy can easily be done for less than $100. The whole area can be done completely free if you choose to just browse and not buy anything. Shops that line Mulberry Street and the side streets of Hester, Grand, and Broome have a variety of Italian items for sale. Leaving with souvenirs of shoes, cigars, handbags and one-of-a-kind art can all be purchased in the busy neighborhood. Make sure to not leave until you buy freshly made pasta, homemade sauce and other Italian dishes that can be prepared at home.

If you are hungry while walking around, visit Il Cortile at 125 Mulberry Street. This restaurant has been a staple of the Little Italy neighborhood since 1975. Guests can order homemade tortellini, ravioli, rigatoni and other pasta dishes cooked to order. Gluten-free options are also available. Many famous personalities, like the cast from The Sopranos, frequent the restaurant so the possibility of running into a star is part of the fun.

In September, the Feast of San Gennaro fills the streets as New York City’s biggest religious festival. The long weekend celebrates with parades, food and a procession of the statue of San Gennaro. This festival is free to attend.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

How to Get From the Airport to Marrakech

The mystifying city of Marrakech, Morocco, is a delight to the traveler’s senses. As a fast-growing tourist destination, the largest city in Morocco welcomed a record-breaking 2 million visitors in 2017.
