Whether you’re in NYC or somewhere else, there’s a lot more to do than to take in a Broadway (or Off Broadway) type show. Look at Las Vegas, for example. Although a unique place in many ways, Vegas is a good representative of just what the world has to offer as far as entertainment goes. Shows like Cirque du Soleil, magicians, comedy acts, musicians, and more all have a huge amount of appeal and can all be just as entertaining as a Broadway show.
The good news is that these types of acts are found all over the world. Wherever you live, you won’t need to travel very far to take in a show. If you have a favorite act or band in mind that you’d like to see, you probably already have a decent idea of when they will be traveling to your area. You don’t need to go to Vegas to take in a great show. Just like with Broadway theater, there are acts all over the world. And if your favorite isn’t going to be in your area soon, it’s probably just a matter of time before they will be. Keep checking their schedules to see when you should be getting ready to buy tickets.
Shows don’t necessarily need to be large. Broadway theater implies that there are at least 500 people in attendance, but not all cities have theaters of this size. But almost all places have venues where top rated musicians and other performers can come and entertain a few thousand people at a time. It might even be an outdoor venue, but as long as you arrive prepared for the elements of the day, you will not have any less fun while you’re there. There’s so many opportunities to get out and have fun at any time of the year. If you’re unsure of what is going on around your area, spend some time at a site like StubHub or SeatGeek and use their search feature. This will allow you to not just search for specific acts, but to do a geographical search. Type in the name of your city, and all of the acts near you that have tickets available will appear. This makes looking for something to do on the weekend a lot easier!
Of course, you can travel to go take in a show. For many, this can be the focal point of a family vacation or an outing with some friends. Getting tickets to see Blue Man Group with your family can be a once in a lifetime experience. Just don’t forget that there’s a lot of other stuff to do on your vacation. You want to buy tickets well ahead of time so that you have the seats that you want, right? Along the same principle, you want to prep beforehand to ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises while you’re out on vacation.
Looking to go to dinner at a fancy restaurant? Make sure you have reservation. Need a place to stay? Call the hotel to confirm your reservation at least once in between getting the rooms and your arrival. Need transportation while you’re away? Be sure you’re familiar with the public transportation wherever you’re going. There are a lot of little things that a vacation entails and managing those well can ensure that your whole group has a better time while you’re away. All of those small things add up to one large experience. When done right, this can be the best trip of your life. If you’re going away with people you care about, this should certainly be your goal.
