Do you love living in NYC, but occasionally like to take a Day Trip so you can get a new cultural perspective, or just go out in nature and explore? I love doing that, but sadly there must generally be an impetus that motivates me to make a plan. Planning (ugh!) is not my favorite thing, but it is sometimes necessary to achieve the goal of having a crazy fun new adventure. Recently, I took day trip with my art-loving pal Teddy outside the City via Metro-North. The impetus: The Haas Brothers have an exhibit at the Katonah Museum of Art!
There are not many things I love more than joining a good friend for a day-trip adventure that involves both Nature and Art. The Katonah Museum of Art is a relaxing 90 minute ride from Grand Central Station via Metro-North, and you can plan a very fun day around a visit to this small museum (about the size of one of the larger galleries in Chelsea) which is situated in the middle of beautiful nature. Right now, they have a fun exhibit of sculptures by The Haas Brothers called Constant Carnival, which runs through June 26th, so you still have lots of time to see it. Pictured above are me and my pal Teddy with one of the brothers’ larger-than-life sculptures, Jungle Fool, who keeps watch out front on the museum lawn. Watch for my full review of the show coming soon!
Atlantic City has long been a popular option for New York City residents seeking a different kind of night out, or even a weekend away. As you might expect, this sort of activity more or less came to a halt during the worst of the pandemic in 2020. Now, however, we’re seeing a little bit of a tourism push from Atlantic City — and it appears to be working. A May article on NorthJersey.com offered a number of positive indicators regarding tourists returning to Atlantic City, and activity returning to the area’s casino resorts specifically.
It’s a lot of fun to know that this option is back on the table, and we figured now is as good a time as any to offer tips to New Yorkers who want to make the trip. Here are a few things to know if you’re eyeing a night out (or weekend away) in Atlantic City.
Well, New York City really has it all (oh yeah); that much is true. One of the many millions of reasons that living in Manhattan totally rules is that, should you wish to seek adventure beyond the city limits, it is possible to make an awesome Day Trip to another city located in an entirely different state! You can’t do that from LA, that is for sure. The NYC Day Trip is a thing to be taken advantage of and enjoyed as often as possible. Because sometimes, if you do your homework, you can experience an entire lifetime in one day.
Oh man, this sounds like such delicious fun: a one day event dedicated to enjoying your obsession with the world’s most perfect food, bacon. Read all about one couple’s trip to Camp Bacon at this link.
