Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

Yesterday I went to surf for the first time. I am so inspired by the culture - the stillness from sitting on a board in the middle of the ocean - the rush of riding a wave - the uplifting and creative community - and I'm now planning on going to the beach every week and looking up surfing destinations around the world.So now I want to know - have you ever surfed before? If so, would you?photo by @sean_davey
