  • Rocky Mountain High

    Bonnie's buzzing around the country this summer, and Bonnie Loves to Travel! I'll be sharing with you all the wonderful spots in the United States and what to do when you get there.

    This week it's all about Rocky Mountain High, and Aspen, Colorado is the place to be! Aspen is home of the Food & Wine Festival, the Aspen Art Museum, International Music Festival, and the ballet.

    Lot's to explore in Aspen.

    On the Fourth of July, a parade runs down the old part of town down Main Street and fireworks are all over the Aspen mountains. Bike ride down to the Rio Grande Trail all the way down Valley to Basalt, and then cheat and take the bus back to town.

    Make sure you stop at the Woody Creek Tavern, a must for everyone for a fabulous lunch and a way to recharge the battery.

    Wood Creek Tavern - great place to grab a bite.

    Hike around Maroon Bells. It's amazing, the most breathtaking part of the Rockies. You can even take public transportation! They have buses that take you right to the trailhead, and you can take beautiful pictures. You can even take a gondola up Aspen Mountain for a view of the entire Aspen Valley, and the view of the Continental Divide.

    People go to Aspen to ski in the winter, but the summers are gorgeous! The music festival brings loads of people from all over the United States and Europe.

    Aspen Musical Festival - enjoy music and the outdoors at the same time!

    On Sunday afternoons you can go and sit on a blanket and have a picnic and listen to the visiting orchestra for free. Also, there are wonderful exhibitions at the Aspen Art Museum.

    On July 22nd and 23rd, Aspen has a fabulous art festival for free, right in the center of town. There will be beautiful sculptures, photography, glass, painting, ceramics, jewelry, and fantastic food to boot.

  • Nantucket: Better Known as "The Grey Lady"

    It's live from the Grey Lady this week, and Bonnie is buzzing around the island of Nantucket. It's 33 miles from Cape Cod, and there's much activity going on here!

    This week starts off with the 22nd annual Nantucket Film Festival, June 21st through the 26th. The festival features over 70 films from all over the world, with many of the screenwriters, directors and actors on island to talk about the films. Check it out at www.nantucketfilmfestival.org.

    A fabulous cinematic celebration on ACK. A fabulous cinematic celebration on ACK.

    On Saturday June 24th at 10 am, there is an amazing charity event for A Safe Place. It's a fundraiser event in which men walk in women's shoes to raise awareness about violence against women. It's called "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" - are you man enough? It should be quite an event!

    Men walking in women's shoes - a sight to see! Men walking in women's shoes - a sight to see!

    There's an abundance of museums on island worth exploring. It's a great activity for all ages. There's the Nantucket Whaling Museum, The Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum, The Nantucket Life-saving Museum, and the Maria Mitchell Association.

    One classic feature of Nantucket's landscape are the many beautiful and historical lighthouses to explore, and there are tours of the oldest house on island, which was built in 1686. It's just a fascinating place!

    Raven's Walk is another great Nantucket adventure. A gal will take you on a guided tour of all the haunted houses on the island, and tell you the stories of who lived there and how they died. A fun and mysterious evening walk through the cobblestone streets of Nantucket.

    Learn the haunted history of downtown Nantucket. Be intrigued by the haunted history of the town of Nantucket.

    There are over 82 miles of pristine beaches on the island. With shells and sand and wave action that varies from one side of the island to the other, you're in for some breathtaking views.

    Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over town! Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over the island!

    The island is only 14 miles long by 3.5 miles wide, but there is so much to see! Thirty-five miles of bike paths cover the island to give you the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, see the beauty of the island, and keep the traffic level down. I highly recommend it!

    You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride. You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride.

    There are so many farms developing on the island that it's becoming a sustainable island. The food is so fresh and delicious. The farm tour at Bartlett's Farm enables you to pick your own strawberries and tomatoes. What fun!

    Good eats and tasty treats on island! Good eats and tasty treats on island!

    On the island, there are hundreds of artists who reside here year round. Due to their presence, ACK has developed The Nantucket Artist's Association. During the summer there are exhibitions weekly. Local galleries and antique dealers are willing to share some of Nantucket's richest history through their beautiful objects of art.

    Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket. Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket.

    Whether you're lucky enough to come to this beautiful little island off the coast of Cape Cod called Nantucket, or you're down in Southern Florida enjoying the seashore there, remember that it's all about wearing beautiful lightweight clothing, natural fibers, beautiful colors, and being stylish.

  • B Equals Broadway in the Big Apple

    This week's Buzz is all about the letter "B!" Broadway and the Big Apple!

    If you're going up to New York this week, it's exciting. The Tony Awards have all been given out, and there's a few picks of my own that I recommend. On Monday night, go to Birdland. It's Legend's Radio's New York Minute, Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch at the helm and a Cast Party! All the top stars from Broadway come and share their talent - not to be missed!

    Ava Faith, Jim Caruso, and Me Ava Faith, Billy Stritch, and Me

    At the top of everybody's list is Hello Dolly this season with Bette Midler. A tough ticket, but a must-see. A few new shows on the pike that everyone's talking about: Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 starring Josh Groban, and Come From Away, which is absolutely heartwarming. A revival that everyone is raving about is Miss Saigon - it's absolutely phenomenal. Get your tickets for any of these fantastic shows online at www.broadway.com.

    It's a hot season for Broadway! It's a hot season for Broadway!

    A personal favorite: War Paint, starring Christine Ebersole and Patti LuPone. Christine's been a friend of mine for 35 years. She's won two Tony Awards! Patti LuPone is also a major star on Broadway and a Tony Award winner. They play Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein - with set designs, and costumes, and voices like that it's not to be missed!

    Everybody is talking about the dramatic plays this season. A Doll's House Part 2 with Laurie Metcalf and Chris Cooper and we have Oslo, about the Middle East Peace talks of 1993. We also have The Little Foxes, Lillian Hellman's play, starring Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney on alternate nights. And, we have Kevin Kline and Noel Coward in Present Laughter.

    Fabulous shows to catch this season on Broadway. Fabulous shows to catch this season on Broadway.

    My last recommendation is Dear Evan Hansen. It's at the top of just about everyone's list. There are many other fabulous plays on Broadway this season- get a ticket to a show if you can!

    It's a sizzling summer in Manhatten. Remember that as I'm buzzing around the country, the letter "B" is my favorite letter, but I have all the letters, A through Z, as part of my Bonnie Roseman BLT Collection of accessories. I have your favorite letter too, dipped in silver or gold, which can make a fabulous necklace or belt - a great addition to any wardrobe.
