One great thing about living on the East Coast is that it is so easy to sneak away for the weekend. A.) there are fun places to go and B.) it is so easy to hop on a train out of the city. My friend Ashley from Loyola was visiting her home in Fairfield, CT, so I hopped on a train from Grand Central to see her. My visit was quick, but we made time to visit the beach which is a block from her house. Such a great escape from the NYC heat wave!
Once I have a little extra cash flow, I look forward to making weekend trips to other big East Coast cities.
