Here is a short list of attractions (word file) (pdf file) in New York City including the subway routes for getting to those attractions. Hopefully it can be helpful for planning a one or two-day trip in NYC.  🙂

Finding Parking

April 1, 2011 Leave a comment

Finding a parking meter or parking garage for short term parking can be painful, here are some good websites I found, especially useful for parking in Boston.

  • Primo Spot is so far one of the best websites providing both on-street parking and garage parking information, but it only covers NYC, Boston and Seattle.
  • Boston Parking can calculate the parking rates by locations and hours
  • Parkopedia shows the types of parking on google map
  • Parking Carma gives list of garage parking with daily and hourly rates
  • Parking Spotter mainly lists daily or monthly parking information.
  • Parkwhiz (this lists more of daily parking)

My Favorite Vegas Shows

April 1, 2009 Leave a comment

What happened in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas. Here are some of the shows I’d love to see more than once in Vegas when I got a chance to go there again. I also include some information on saving money for first-time visitors . Hopefully it can be helpful for some people.

  • The phantom of the opera at Venetian. This is absolutely the best show I saw in Vegas, and the best musical of all time!! I also went to see this musical in NYC, and I think the visual effect of this show in Vegas is even better than that of Broadway in NYC. We used the coupon codes from TravelZoo and saved lots of money. The discount on this website right now seems not that big compared to what I saw last year, but it definitely saves money.
  • O show at Bellagio. There are many similar shows in Vegas. Like this O show (the most expensive one), Mystere is also good. Le Rêve, Zumanity, etc. are other this kind of acrobatics shows.
  • Jubilee at Bally’s . Just click on the link, enough said, hehe.
  • Penn & Teller at Rio. One of the best magic shows in Vegas, and it’s also very funny.
  • Legends in Concert at Harrah’s. One of the best celebrity impersonator shows.
