MEET LORA

Meet my friend Lora, founder of Beyond the Square. Lora is a professional travel planner whose passion for New York City is unmatched by anyone other than me! Lora has planned all types of trips to New York City over the years: trips for families with young children or with older kids who are considering college in the city, birthday celebrations, honeymoons, and even single-day layover visits. She’s super friendly and a great communicator. I love working with her and I know you will too.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

We offer three tiers of services depending on how hands-on you’d like the planning. Want a simple conversation with an NYC expert to get a better idea of what you should do based on your interests? We can do that. Or maybe you’d like a completely planned and booked trip hour-by-hour?

We can do that too!

THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE!

Purchase the tier of services you’d like, complete the questionnaire on your specific interests/needs, have a call with Lora, then have your NYC vacation planned by both of us. So, what are you waiting for? Make your life easier and your trip more memorable by having New York City experts plan it with you. Don’t miss out on experiences that truly could be once-in-a-lifetime. We’re here to help you have the best trip ever!

Your dream NYC vacation is just a click away!
