New York icons like the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge are still on her list of places she'd like to see.
I told her to check out Gootli. The iOS app offers a collection of short videos that give you a much better view of a tour that what many people get from a little brochure or from the description you might get from the hotel concierge.
Gootli says it will also hook up users with exclusive last-minute deals and discounts.
Gootli is available as a free download in the iTunes App Store. You can also follow @gootliapp on Twitter and on Facebook.
For an example of a Gootli video, check out the video below of a New York City tour that features artists like Banksy, Os Gemeos and Nick Walker.
