To visit New York City is a lifelong dream for many people. However, if you do not plan your trip thoroughly, it can be quite expensive, and before you know it, you're already saying goodbye to your savings.

Although it is one of the best places to earn a lot of money, locals and travelers alike still don't want to drown in credit card debt whenever they are in the city.

Fear no more: travelers can still make the most out of New York City without panicking about breaking the bank. Thankfully, in NYC, people will never run out of things to do.

Watch A Free Concert

Travelers visiting New York in the summertime can treat themselves to a free concert organized by the BRIC. Celebrate Brooklyn is a free outdoor concert and art exhibit held in Prospect Park Bandshell with live performances from great artists such as Vance Joy and Shaggy and Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal.

Just bring a blanket to laze around in, probably get a hotdog and beer, and enjoy the show.

Visit House Of Yes For A Fun Time

A fun night is a must whenever people visit NYC. This bar located in Bushwick, Brooklyn, will give the local dive bars and dance floors a run for their money. House of Yes sets up shows for its audience ranging from '90s nights, light shows, sensual presentations, and even a mermaid-themed party!

Most nights in the bar are free, and ticketed events range from $15 to $30.

Score Cheap Broadway Tickets

New York is the mecca for Broadway musicals, and it is recommended that you watch at least one show when you visit. Be on the lookout for discounts at the TKTS booth or buy a Standing Room Only and Rush tickets.

Watch Slam Poetry Live

For just $10, people can visit Moth StorySLAM and witness the world's best slam poets share their art. If you're feeling it, you can even go onstage and share your own piece. However, you have to act fast, as tickets go on sale a week before the event and are almost immediately sold out.

Do A BBQ in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Taking a stroll in the famous Brooklyn Bridge will surely make you hungry. If you fancy a barbeque partnered with a breathtaking view of the skyline, you can go to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, where there are grills and picnic tables that you can use for free.
