April 28 marks the celebration of National Superhero Day. While everyone has an opinion of the best superhero, there are plenty of ways to celebrate the iconic characters that are an integral part of pop culture today.


Movie Marathon

Host a movie marathon party. Whether you like DC or Marvel, choose your favorite superhero movies and have a viewing party with your friends and family. Ask your friends to dress up as their favorite superhero. Vote on the best costume and give him or her a prize or simply bragging rights.



Book a trip to a filming location of your favorite superhero film. While Spiderman’s Daily Bugle newspaper may not be real, the building serving as its headquarters in the 2002 film is (New York City’s Flatiron Building). Though some movie scenes were filmed on soundstages around the world and others were created digitally, there are still plenty of places you can visit in person.


Buy Comics

Head to your local comic book store to experience superhero source material. Pick out some comics of your favorite superhero, or discover something new while supporting a local business. If you have a little superhero fan in your life, spend some time reading your new comic books with them.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
