End of Summer Playtime for the Whole Family

Playtime for the whole family. One more trip before the summer ends, please!

End of Summer Playtime for the Whole Family
Summer Fountain Fun

Alas! Summer is coming to an end, and, as always, it was too short. Kids are dreading the approach of the school year, and their parents are wishing they had one last opportunity to escape the stresses of work and enjoy the beautiful weather. Fortunately, there is still time to book a perfect family getaway and end the summer with a bit of playtime for the whole family. Below, we have listed some of our favorite cities, each with one amazing playground for the kids and a nightlife event for the adults.

New York City

Teardrop Park

A section of the larger Tribeca, Manhattan, this is not a traditional playground, with swings and jungle-gyms, although there is a large slide that is sure to leave your kids laughing. Teardrop Park is marked by heaving rock formations that help to hide the surrounding city, giving this place an atmosphere of calm seclusion amid the hustle-and-bustle of the country’s busiest city. Along with the slide, the park features a large sandbox area, a tunnel under one of the rock formations, a reading circle, multiple sitting greens, and the “water rocks,” a fountain built into one of the rocks.

Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Founded in the Alphabet City neighborhood of Manhattan in 1973 to give the city’s large population of Puerto Rican writers a venue to showcase their talents (“Nuyorican” is a term for a New Yorker of Puerto Rican descent), this is one of New York’s best performing arts venues. Striving to give voice to artists who would otherwise be underrepresented in mainstream culture, the Nuyorican hosts a diverse array of events, from theater and music pieces to slam poetry every Friday night.

San Francisco

Adventure Playground (Berkeley)

Wow! This is a one-of-a-kind playground, located in Berkeley across the bay from San Francisco, and is sure to make parents envy their children. It features forts, boats, and towers, all designed by children, for children. Kids can go wild on the zipline, or get in touch with their creative sides by painting. It is recommended to wear sturdy shoes (no sandals or flip-flops!) and clothes that can get wet and dirty. See the park’s website for a full list of rules and other information.

After Dark at Exploratorium

Held at San Francisco’s Exploratorium, a facility showcasing “how the world works” through engaging, interactive scientific exhibits After Dark is a nighttime series for adults only that mixes science, art, cocktails – a winning trio. Each night focuses on a different topic, with names like “Tricks Are Treats” and “Decay.” This show offers it all: live performance, film, music, technology, alcohol, stimulating conversation – there is something for everyone. Visit the Exploratorium website for a full event schedule and a list of After Dark themes.

Boston – Harvard Square

Alexander W. Kemp Playground

A newly redesigned playground that still retains the look of an older, wooden playground, Kemp Playground, north of Harvard Square, has structures built on small hills and sand that facilitate climbing, swinging, and sliding, with areas suitable for all young ages from toddlers up. The mission of its designers was to create a space that incorporated both playing and learning about the surrounding world.

Oberon

The second stage of Cambridge’s American Repertory Theater (ART), Oberon mixes theatrical performance into a nightclub setting, featuring many shows, both temporary and regular, that usually would not get the same attendance on the ART’s mainstage. Many of these shows are interactive, such as the highly popular “Donkey Show,” a disco-reimagining of William Shakespeare’s beloved play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with divas, roller skates, and glitter, held every Saturday Night. Visit the ART’s website for a full event schedule and other information.

Traveling from the Bronx to Boston? Check out the new bus service

Coach Run Adds New Bus Service from NYC to Boston

Coach Run understands that going south of city to get into Manhattan, just to catch the bus and then  go back north again didn’t make much sense.

They paid attention,  listened to their customers’ requests and worked with their team to create a solution that will meet their travelers’ needs and will make them happy. With that in mind Coach Run has added a new bus service from the Bronx, NY

The New Departure Location in The  Bronx 

Citizens of the Bronx no longer  have to deal with the hassle that comes while making their way into Manhattan to catch a bus to Boston.

The New Departure Location in The  Bronx 

As you may hear all the time from locals and visitors alike, you don’t really need a car to get around NYC.  Well,  that’s so true. If you are familiar with the Metro, you can basically get to anywhere in the five boroughs by train.

The New Departure Location in The  Bronx 

The new departure location in the Bronx is near Pelham Bay Park Station. 

 Take the 6 Train Uptown to the last stop of the train which is  Pelham Bay Park Station. Once you arrive, get off the train and head south west along Bruckner Express Highway until you meet Middleton Rd. It is only 11 minutes walk considering you are a slow-pace walker like me.

At the intersection, cross the foot bridge to make sure you are on the same side as the baseball field. The specific departure location will be located on corner of the Bruckner Blvd (Baseball Field) – Intersection of Bruckner Bl & Middletown Rd, Bronx NY 10465

What are you waiting for? Get your Bronx Bus Tickets to Boston  for as low as $8.

Remembering the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The first long weekend of the new year is on our doorstep. Martin Luther King Day, it is observed on the third monday of January each year, is a day of service, commemoration, and the broadening of horizons. All across the country, people will gather to honor the man who led the Civil Rights Movement.

If your resolution for this year was to make a difference in the world, this national holiday is the perfect way to start. Find a project in your community or register your own project so that volunteers can find it. Alternatively, you can attend one of the many celebrations going on around the United States. Here’s a taste of what some of the major US metropolitan areas have to offer:

Nationwide

Remembering the Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On Martin Luther King Day, all national parks and monuments will be offering free admission, meaning there’s more of a reason than ever to see the beauty in your very own backyard. From the history of Yellowstone to the tips of the tallest sequoias in King’s Canyon, the public is invited to take in nature’s diversity.

Washington, DC

In the nation’s capital, the place where so much of the Civil Rights demonstrations were centered, the services of remembrance take on both a somber and a joyous atmosphere. Here’s a sample of what will be going on:

  • Georgetown University and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts are proud to present a special musical performance featuring the Let Freedom Ring Choir. Tickets are free but required to attend. They will be handed out the day of the event in front of the concert hall starting at 5:00pm. This concert also features award-winning singer Dionne Warwick.
  • Kids’ tours of the Martin Luther King memorial will be held twice a day all weekend, at 11:00am and 2:00pm. Kids will learn about history and have the chance to earn a “Junior Ranger” badge.

New York, NY

Perhaps no place in the United States is such a perfect example of cultural diversity as the Big Apple. For decades, people from all over the world and all walks of life came here to start fresh in a place where the felt their dreams could be realized. The ideas of equality and community presented by King take on a new life in this amazing place.

  • Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola at Columbus Circle is hosting a special jazz show at 7:00pm and 9:00 pm. 
  • The Children’s Museum of Manhattan is hosting a variety of activities focused on community service and understanding the message of Dr. King. The exhibits are mostly geared toward kids between the ages of 4 and 8.

Atlanta, GA

It was in the south that the call for equality was heard the loudest, and to this day people come together to celebrate the incredible bravery and acts of civil disobedience that rang throughout the region.

  • A Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. National Holiday Commemorative March & Rally will be held at 1:45pm. It begins at Peachtree Street and Baker Street and ends outside the King Center at 4:30pm.
  • The MLK Day 5k Drum Run will start at 8:00am in Piedmont Park. The event gets its name from the 3.1 mile drumline all along the race course. This unique event lets runners register their school, church, organization, etc. as a beneficiary for proceeds from the fundraiser.

Thanksgiving Weekend Fun!

Where are you going to be celebrating this fun weekend of Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving Weekend Fun!
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thanksgiving Weekend Fun! It is a busy time for travel. A lot of people will be trying to get home to spend time with their loved ones. If you’ll be one of the many weary travelers this year, you should visit GotoBus.com, one of the web’s leading marketplaces for affordable bus tickets, to find the route that will get you where you need to go. Thanksgiving dinner tastes great, but it tastes even better when surrounded by those closest to you!

New York

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the most anticipated event on the holiday, and this year, marks the 89th year the parade has been running. Not only do crowds of people line the streets of Manhattan to see floats of their favorite cartoon characters, like Snoopy and Spongebob, but there will also be performances from talented marching bands, cheerleaders, dance teams, and more! This year’s parade will also feature musical performances from crowd favorites like Jordin Sparks, Prince Royce, Train, Andra Day, and Shawn Mendes. Be sure to check out the official website for the complete list! Even though thousands of people line up on the streets of Manhattan to watch the parade in person, even more people tune in on their televisions to watch from all around the US. Be sure to book tickets to New York to see this huge celebration in person before they sell out!

Boston

The very first Thanksgiving was held in the Greater Boston Area in Plymouth, MA when the Pilgrims broke bread with the Native Americans who lived in the area. Plimoth Plantation is a living museum (actors will be in costumes and acting out what life was like back then) where you can see a replica of the original community they established in 1620. We can’t think of many better ways to celebrate Thanksgiving than by reliving the history that is behind the holiday. Book bus tickets to Boston for an authentic Turkey Day experience!

Chicago

New York’s not the only major American city that hosts a parade! Chicago is another huge urban area (and it’s cleaner than NYC!) that knows the best way to get down, hosting the annual McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade. Beginning on State Street downtown, the parade runs from 8 to 11 AM. Though it’s been held since 1934, McDonald’s became the first title sponsor in 1984. The mascot is Teddy Turkey, a plump, fun-loving bird who goes around spreading holiday cheer. Hang out with Teddy by booking bus tickets to Chicago now!

Florida

The Seniors First Turkey Trot 5K has been a Thanksgiving tradition in the Orlando area for the past 25 years. It’s a race around Lake Eola to help benefit the area’s senior citizens. Participants are invited to wear Pilgrim attire or turkey costumes and race to the finish! This is definitely a great opportunity to take some pictures of people in ridiculous outfits! There are also countless theme parks in the Orlando area to help keep your family entertained. Book your bus tickets to Florida now at an unbeatable low rate!

Los Angeles

On November 29th, Los Angeles will host the Hollywood Christmas Parade. OK, we know, it’s not for Thanksgiving, but that seems a little early for Christmas, doesn’t it? This year, magician duo Penn and Teller have been selected as the Grand Marshalls for the parade, so it’s sure to be a magical experience. The parade begins at 5 PM on Hollywood Boulevard. Book your bus tickets to California now!

Detroit

After a few tough years, it finally seems like Detroit is back on the upswing. This is great news for the automotive capital of the US. You can join the local community in celebrating and show off your patriotism by joining America’s Thanksgiving Parade. It’s the second-oldest parade in the country (after Macy’s), and features similar floats. The climax of the parade is the arrival of Santa Claus, who announces the beginning of the Christmas season. Book tickets to Detroit from cities all around the around the country!

Thanksgiving Weekend Fun!
