Events 12 is a great website dedicated to the best activities going on throughout the year. For some creative, cold weather activities this month, look toward the New York City theater scene.
For a fun and upbeat show, check out the critically acclaimed Kinky Boots. The happy-go-lucky show, with music from Cyndi Lauper, will be at the Al Hirschfeld Theater from Feb. 1–May 29.
Stephen King’s classic thriller Misery stars Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf at the Broadhurst Theater. This suspenseful drama will be running from Feb. 2–14, so this show is definitely a must-see while available.
A View From the Bridge is a passion-filled and heart-wrenching drama by theater legend Arthur Miller. The immigrant tale is set in the 1950s and is a great production to see for any fan of the gritty styling of Arthur Miller. This show will be available Feb. 2–21 at the Lyceum Theatre from $59 a ticket.
Another great show running in February is Matilda; this musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved novel is fun and exciting for all ages. Matilda The Musical runs through July 3 at the Shubert Theatre from $39–99 a ticket. For anyone who has read the book or seen the movie, the musical is a twist on an old favorite.
Whether in the mood for lighthearted, thrilling or dramatic, there is a show for any theater fan visiting New York City this month.
In the western state of Jalisco, Guadalajara boasts some incredible Mexican culture, including historical landmarks, idyllic neighborhoods, fun shopping, dining and live mariachi music. Paint the town read with very little green (or multicolored peso, in this instance) and explore Guadalajara cheaply.
The Christmas season is serious business in Ecuador with much of the population practicing traditional Roman Catholic beliefs. Though Christmas is celebrated on Dec. 25, the day before might hold more cultural significance. Christmas Eve is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, or the Pase del Nino Viajero – The Passing of the Traveling Child.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
