Business and Pleasure

On occasions, my husband takes overnight business trips. To prevent loneliness, he often invites me to go along with him. Whenever I discover what city we will be visiting, I immediately start researching it. For instance, I map out landmarks we’ve never seen, restaurants with good reviews, entertainment options, and hotels that look appealing. By the time we get in the car, board the plane, or get on the train, every minute of our trip is already planned out. If your spouse travels frequently for work, consider mixing business with pleasure from time to time. On this blog, you will discover how to make the most of an upcoming business trip.

Bachelorette Party Ideas That Don't Include Risque Business For Brides Visiting Manhattan

Delores Tucker

Not all brides to be want to have a risque bachelorette party. So, if you're planning a party for a friend of yours and you're not looking to throw some bacchanalian style event, you need to come up with some other ideas. Luckily if your group is planing on visiting Manhattan, and are assigned to throw a bachelorette party, then it is pretty easy to come up with some alternative ideas. Manhattan has some amazing things to do. Here's a list of some of them.

Broadway Show and Dinner

Everyone who visits Manhattan wants to see Broadway. It's an iconic street. In addition to the famous Times Square area, the most famous aspect of Broadway are the theaters. There are great musicals as well as highly acclaimed dramas. It's a good idea to book tickets ahead of time for your group instead of trying to get them from the discount booth. The issue with buying the tickets from the discount booth located in Times Square is that you don't have a full choice of shows, or a good selection of seats, meaning that you might not be able to get seats together.

When you're group is done with the Broadway show you can then have a really fancy dinner at one of the famous Midtown restaurants. There are fun theme restaurants, with wait staff in costume, as well as really high end restaurants for parties that want to experience a really high end dining experience.

Wine Tour

Just because you're visiting Manhattan it doesn't mean that you have to stay in Manhattan during the entire duration of your trip. In fact, one of the best things to do is to visit Long Island for a wine tour. There are some really quaint vineyards located on Long Island. They are small, and many have some really fun restaurants located right on the premises. You can choose from in-land vineyards, to beautiful ones that are located right on coast and have a beautiful view. One cool idea would be to take a limo out of Manhattan and tour the different vineyards. You don't want to try and drive out with a rental, even if your group is small. For one thing, the roads out in Suffolk country (which is the section of Long Island that is the farthest east) is difficult to navigate if you've never been there. The roads are often times small country roads. Secondly, you don't want to have to force one of the ladies to be the designated driver and not enjoy the wine tour. When you take a limo out there, the hired drivers can safely carry you from one location to  another.
