2-for-1 Broadway Week (Sept.3-16)

“Broadway is home to some of the highest quality productions in the world — and, unfortunately, also some of the highest ticket prices. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to save money on tickets to the Great White Way. Theatergoers who want to kick off their fall with a Broadway show can take advantage of Broadway Week, which will offer 2-for-1 tickets to top musicals and plays.

Broadway Week, a promotion offered through NYC & Company, will take place this fall from Tuesday, September 3rd through Friday, September 16th. Ticket buyers can purchase 2-for-1 tickets using the code BWAYWK through the promotion, as well as upgrade their tickets for just $30 using code BWAYUP (subject to availability).

Twenty-four Broadway shows will be participating in Broadway Week this September, including both beloved favorites and new tenants on the Great White Way. New Yorkers and visitors alike can take advantage of the promotion to see some of the hottest new Broadway musicals, including recent Tony Award nominees Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, Beetlejuice, and Tootsie. Discover a beloved classic musical in a whole new way with Daniel Fish’s stripped-down revival of Oklahoma!, which took home the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical earlier this year.” (cityguideny.com)

Best NYCity Restaurants

It’s not difficult to find a place to eat in Manhattan. Seems like there is at least one restaurant on every block. The New York City health department inspected over 10,000 eating establishments in Manhattan alone last year. And the selection of restaurants includes cuisines from all over the world.

Finding a good place to eat is a bit harder. We could start with New York City’s 72 Michelin-Starred Restaurants, but they are more suitable for those on expense accounts or celebrating a special event. No worries. There are many guides to good eating available, if you know where to look.

Here are a few of my favorite guides to the best restaurants in various neighborhoods:

Best Places to Eat in Times Square  (tripsavvy.com)

Best Restaurants in 55 NYC Neighborhoods  (zagat.com)

Where To Eat Uptown in NYC  (fodors.com)

The Definitive Midtown Dining Guide  (thrilist.com)

Where to Eat and Drink Near the High Line (thrilist.com)

The Grub Street Guide to Affordable Sushi in New York  (grubstreet,com)

The Absolute Best Restaurants in the Meatpacking District (grubstreet,com)

11 Tastes of Chinatown  (nycgo.com)

Restaurant Row Guide (nycgo.com)

The 15 Best Places with a Happy Hour in the Upper West Side  (foursquare)

On other days you will find info on the Best NYC Restaurants or Top Online Travel Forums with NYC info. We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here. Today it’s 6 Top Online Travel Forums.

===========================================================

Traditional travel guides and blogs, whether online or in paper format, give you a lot of content but still have their limitations. Chances are you’ll have specific questions and concerns that they didn’t cover.

online travel forums (the original social media) are one of the best ways to find information you can’t find elsewhere, and to find answers to specific questions. These online communities of travelers are ready and willing to offer their insights and first-hand knowledge.

Which are the best travel forums – the forums with many informed and active members who will answer your questions promptly and accurately? with moderators who will ensure that discussions stay relevant and civil?

Here are my six favorites:

> Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree
An old timer (since 1996) – you can search by destination or interest, search for a travel buddy or just have a chat. 7.1M results for “everything ever.”
Search here for New York City

> Trip Advisor’s Travel Board
Their motto: ”Get the truth.Then go” Search by destination or interest. The New York City Travel Forum has 189K topics and the sidebar “Top questions about New York City” is very helpful.
Search here for New York City

> Frommer’s Community Forums
Not as active as some other forums, but archived topics can be helpful. Search by destinations, trip ideas, tips&tools.
Search here for New York City

> Fodor’s Travel Talk Forums
This is a big one with 2.1M posts for the USA and 3.9M posts for Europe and can be difficult to find what you are looking for. In order to use all the features of the forum, you will need to register.
Search here for New York City

> Flyer Talk Forums
Been around a long time. Heavy, of course, on air travel and airports. But the destinations section has a New York City forum with many posts. Unfortunately, browsing through the threads is time consuming, and the search engine is not very helpful.
Search here for New York City

> Rick Steve’s Travel Forum
This is a Euro-centric Forum, so it won’t be much help for NYCity. But Rick Steves and his travelers have so much good information on the site I just had to list it. Be sure to use it when you travel to Europe.
Search here for technology tips

Of course, your FaceBook friends and Twitter world may be helpful too.
