The Candy Apple, Spooky NYC

It’s Halloween this week, and wherever you are, have a spooky wonderful week!

Spooky NYC Halloween Festivities

New York City! The “City that Never Sleeps!” The Big Apple! It’s my last stop before heading back to West Palm Beach, and it’s a great place to visit if you haven’t experienced the hustle and bustle of such a Metropolitan city.

It’s hard to beat Central Park on a Sunday afternoon. Dozens of musicians, artists, and dancers, all free for the viewing, not to mention the ponds and trees in their fall-colored glory.

Central Park in Autumn

Of course Broadway is one of the highlights of being in the city, and I’m very fortunate to be able to see Hello Dolly this week as well as Dear Evan Hanson, which won all the top awards for Best Musical.

Two Broadway shows I highly recommend.

There are also a few small off Broadway shows that I want to let people know about. One is called I of the Storm, it’s at the Gym at the Judson. Desperate Measures at the York which is on 54th and Lexington, and Lonely Planet, which is on Theater Row. Those are just a few special off Broadway productions worth seeing.

Great selections for more enjoyable performances in NYC.

For more music in the city, we have Michael Masci who surprises us on Sunday nights at Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle Hotel! He’s up from the West Palm Beach area – what a treat!

Michael Masci and Me

On Mondays, we have the Cast Party at Birdland with Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch, and a lot of Broadway surprises with so many people sharing their talent. What a great way to spend a Monday evening!

This is a fabulous show that you don’t want to miss!
So whether you’re strolling in your cashmere jacket here in New York, or you’re in your cotton and linen shirts in West Palm Beach, Florida, remember, it’s all about style.

Maryland’s Capital, Right Off the Chesapeake – Annapolis

Annapolis: The capital of Maryland, and 350 years old. It’s a vibrant and charming colonial town, and it’s the home of the U.S. Naval Academy. It’s also known for its sailing and boating activities, since it’s right off the Chesapeake Bay.

Downtown, Maryland Avenue in particular is so delightful! You can bike, or walk around this historic district. When I was there, I couldn’t stop going in to the small cafes and trying all the fresh crab cakes. They are the best!

Blue Crab Cakes, Annapolis, Maryland

There are a lot of fun things to do: The Maritime Museum of Annapolis is a must-see for the whole family. Tour Thomas Point, and see the artistic and virtual exhibits and the “oyster eye view” of sealife.

Heading off to the museum

You can also go down to the Ram’s Head to see a great live performance. It’s an iconic pub that features the most amazing live music, great food and drinks.

Have a drink, grab a bite, see a show.

Another fun activity is going to the Maryland Statehouse. It’s a historic landmark building where you can get tours – check their site here for additional information.

Get a tour of this beautiful historical and government site.

Also, you can go down and check out the cruise from Annapolis to the Bay of St. Michaels. It’s a wonderful way to see the area from the water, enjoy the beautiful views, and this boat tour is running through September 12th.

Bay of St. Michael’s

You don’t want to miss Ego Alley, a very charming area down by the docks. Be sure to stop by the Pennsylvania Dutch Farmer’s Market. Delicious!

I recommend the churned butter!

Another interesting place to go with the kids would be the William Paca Gardens. It’s truly an exquisite estate, where you’ll enjoy the fragrance of the gardens while you walk through the grounds. It is open to the public – see their tour schedule here.

A beautiful day out for the whole family

Make sure you take advantage of all the seaside activities, including strolling through the shipyards. This ship was a reproduction of Lafayette’s, who aided the U.S. during the Revolutionary War. Quite often ships dock and allow tours!

Tour historical reproductions of historic ships

Pack some comfortable shoes and walk around the docks to view colorful houses, historic buildings and all the colorful ships! Annapolis is truly a beautiful place filled with endless places to discover.

Walking along the bay in Annapolis

So whether you’re wearing those patriotic navy blues and whites as you’re strolling through the grounds of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, or you’re in Southern Florida wearing those pastels and whites, remember – it’s all about style!
