“Jumped in the cab here I am for the first time…” -Miley Cyrus
I am in New York!!! It’s been a crazy day! Here’s a timeline of my first day in NYC.
6:00AM: Wake up not very happy at first because why am I awake at 6AM on a summer day? But then, my mood changes when I realize today we are going to NYC!
7:00AM: Arrive at DFW international airport✈️
7:30AM: Buy chicken minis from Chick-Fil-A and my typical caramel frap from Starbucks. Food and frap in hand= happy Kaylee
8:30AM: Board flight and realize the flight has TV’s with lots of free movies!! (Shoutout to American Airlines). I ended up watching Passengers and 9/10 would recommend.
9:00AM: Take off from DFW! New York here we come!
1:30PM: Arrive at New York-Laguardia Airport!
1:50PM: Get in an interesting looking taxi that reminded me of a small school bus. Side note: New York drivers are insane. Lots of honking.
2:55PM: Arrive at our hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, in Times Square to drop off our luggage.
2:57PM: Begin frantically sprinting to Rockefeller Plaza in order to make it in time to see The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
3:09PM: Arrive at Rockefeller Plaza with 6 minutes to spare!!
5:00PM: Sit in a live taping of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon! What an amazing experience.
Tips on how to get the tickets:
- Follow @FallonTix on twitter

If you are able to get tickets: Congrats! You did it!🎉 The show was incredible and Jimmy was very nice! I even got to touch him!!!
6:30PM: Go to NBC gift shop and find souvenirs from all my favorite tv shows including The Office and FRIENDS!!!!
6:45PM: Dinner at Harry’s Italian Pizza Parlor inside Rockefeller Plaza. Very yummy!
9:00PM: Walking around through the city as I spot one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen with my own eyes. My jaw literally dropped and my hand went to my mouth when I saw this church. What a sight to see. I think the fact that this gorgeous, ancient church was smack dab in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city was what struck me. Amazing.
9:30PM: Dessert at Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. In honor of seeing Jimmy Fallon (and because it is an amazing flavor) I got “The Tonight Dough” flavor which is a mix of chocolate, caramel, brownie, and cookie dough (all my favorite sweets combined into one #score)!
10:00PM: Taking the elevator up 70 floors to the Top of the Rock at Rockerfellar Plaza. What an incredible view!!! Definitely worth the money!
11:30PM: Attempt to find ourselves on TV as we watch The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon as it airs on NBC.
1:30AM: Time for bed after a long, but great first day in the Big Apple.
