April Break in NYC

Sometimes a few days out of your routine is all you need. We love to zip to NYC – so close, so much to do! Whether you’re into Broadway shows (check out A View from the Mezzanine for great tips), are taking college tours, (NYU, Barnard, Fordhan, Pace, Cooper-Union, FIT, Columbia or any listed here), or if museums are your reason to travel to the city, then you are in luck. Aside from our favorites, the MOMA, the Met, the Guggenheim, and the Cooper Hewitt, if you’re traveling with little ones then check out the Math Museum, Lego Exhibit, and another family fave, The Central Park Zoo. We all love walking the High Line, exploring neighborhoods, finding great food, and exploring the many parks.

We have driven to the City, taken the bus, the train and plane. What is our top choice? Well, LimoLiner has a new sweet deal called Spring in the City. And there’s a buy one get one deal for less deal which helps make the decision even easier, and some sweet amenities. Like what?

So, for families traveling Mon. – Thurs, April 10 – 20, 2017 

 

Family-friendly amenities  including free Wifi and  on-board movies to keep kids entertained. This is key – table seating with enough room to spread out those coloring books, toys and iPads.

Free meals, snacks & first-class service. Yes, it is possible. The on-board attendant serves a (pre-selected) meal option, complimentary drinks, snacks and glass of wine on trips after 6pm

Easy boarding – just arrive 10 minutes before departure; No baggage fees or security checkpoints

Central pick-up & drop-off locations – LimoLiner passengers board and arrive in the heart of their destination (no airport taxi or Uber needed) in Midtown Manhattan, Boston’s Back Bay and Framingham, MA

Passengers are able to select their seats (reclining, leather seats) in advance at no additional cost, allowing families to sit together, or not :-)

 

So check out Limoliner, relax and get to NYC without the hassle of driving in the city.

Ready for Easter?

In my family growing up,  Easter was a big deal. My mom made our Easter outfits (I know, pretty incredible), dresses in sprigged cotton and matching lining in the pastel wool coats. Yes, she made us coats. And new shoes and frilly ankle socks for me and my sisters, my brother got a new suit or new shirt and tie.  I particularly remember our footwear, . . . → Read More: Ready for Easter?

All about the Pi(e)

Binge watching on Verizon Fios

We have had Verizon Fios since forever – okay, 11 years. I remember when we got it because during one particularity sad technology week here, we had only one antenna for two TVs. So when my oldest asked for the rabbit ears so they could watch PBS downstairs, I laughed, gave them to her, and went out that day for another set. And then I . . . → Read More: Binge watching on Verizon Fios
