Summer is an excellent time to travel to New York with many outdoor events, festivals and more planned in and around the Big Apple. Why not gather some friends and plan a fun-filled weekend in New York over the summer. You can even leave the driving to someone else by hiring an airport limo to get you to your hotel or enjoying the ultimate in a luxurious night out by taking a limousine to one of these spectacular events.
Shakespeare in the Park
Every summer the Delacorte Theater in Central Park offers Shakespeare in the Park, a free presentation of some of Shakespeare’s classic tales. Simply wait in line on the day of the performance to get tickets. The Public Theater produces two plays per summer and have presented such classics as “Much Ado About Nothing” and “King Lear.” For 2015, the production company will present “The Tempest” starring Sam Waterston as one of the free plays in the park. Dates and times vary, but the plays run from May 27 through August 23.
Jazz Age Lawn Party
The Jazz Age Lawn Party is a grand affair held on Governors Island. Dates for the Festival are June 13 and 14 as well as August 15 and 16. Guests are invited to wear their zoot suits and flapper dresses for a day of gramophone DJs and Charleston contests. There is music from Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra as well as delicious cocktails created specifically for the occasion. No need for a designated driver if you arrive at the gala in a limousine.
First Annual Yacht Party
Good Room and Dope Jams will be spinning tunes for the inaugural voyage that will cruise the East River. Guests will dance the night away on August 23, enjoying cocktails and food. Boarding will be at 4:30 PM and there will be a very special captain on board to help sail the boat into the night. This is the perfect NYC summer event to arrive in style in a sleek limousine. Imagine the fun as you and your friends step out of a stretch limo to join the party.
Cocktails at Berry Park
If you want spectacular views of the East River under the stars while enjoying a delicious cocktail, a trip to Berry Park’s rooftop bar is the perfect choice. The 3,000 square-foot deck has a retractable glass roof so a view of the stars is possible year round. In the summer, the open roof adds an outdoor feel that is sometimes difficult to find in New York. Be sure to try some of their unique European brews, such as Schofferhofer grapefruit Hefeweizen and definitely try the bratwurst with sauerkraut. There is a delicious Sunday brunch with a DJ as well.
Summer is the perfect time to visit New York City and, by using the services of limousine services, you can get around the city quickly, easily and in comfort.
