Summer in NYC is great. Know why?
….because you can legit go three months without spending a dime to be entertained!
Longtime readers know, the only thing I love more than travel is concerts. So much so, that when I had a big girl job, I had a stash account specifically for concerts tickets. Those days of expendable income are loooong gone, but that doesn’t mean I’m relegated to watching all my dream shows on Instagram. Check out my list of must see free shows going down this summer!!!
