I can’t believe March is upon us which means in just a few weeks, it will officially be springtime! Yay! I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately so I’m excited to stay put this month and take advantage of what the Big Apple has to offer. To that end, here are 4 activities in-and-around NYC to do this March, plus some outfit inspo for each!
Take Me To Broadway
There are so many fantastic shows currently on Broadway. At the top of my list is The Story Of Legendary Singer Neil Diamond, & Juliet, and The Wanderers playing on Off-Broadway.
If you haven’t seen Funny Girl starring Lea Michelle, then go – a must-see!
If a cocktail (or two) is part of your evening, I highly recommend Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle, Majorelle at the Lowell Hotel, or The Lobby Bar at The Hotel Chelsea.
A Day At The Museum
When it comes to art exhibits, I asked one of my best friends, art consultant, and advisor, Eleanor Cayre, where to go this month and what to see. Here are her top recommendations:
- Gordon Matta-Clark & Pope. L: Impossible Failures at The David Zwirner gallery
- The Ronald S. Lauder Collection at the Neue Gallerie NY
- Wangechi Mutu: Intertwined at the New Museum
- Joel Messler: The Rabbis at Chaim Read
Keep Calm & Have A Spa Day
There’s nothing like taking a few hours for yourself to rest, rejuvenate, and refresh. Here are some beautiful and blissful spots to check in and check out – ha!
- Valmont Spa at The Carlyle
- Spa de la Mer at Baccarat Hotel
- Julien Farel Salon and Spa
- Sage + Sound
- If you’re looking to bring the spa to you, Skoop offers a highly curated list of NYC-based beauty and wellness treatments that can easily be scheduled. The app is very user-friendly – I just booked my first massage that I can’t wait to experience! For any first-time users of the app, be sure to use the code FORTUNE when booking your first service and receive 25$ off your first treatment.
Happiness Is Hiking
I’m of the mind that there’s no greater feeling than getting fresh air, moving your body, and being out in nature.
The Palisades Interstate Park has some great hiking trails and is only about a 35-minute drive from NYC. Bear Mountain also has some glorious trails and views and is about an hour’s drive from NYC. For more suggestions, discover Town & Country’s guide to the best hiking near New York City here.
