I get the best luxury lifestyle news, travel reviews, and information about my favorite cities to visit from my preferred travel guide, Travel with Carnet, so I always know where to find the best dinging, lodging, and events.  I’ve also found some great recipes, wine recommendations and more from Carnet’s Magazines!  The Magazines include Finer Things, Culturally Inclined, Reservation Required, Gourmet Table, For the Ladies, and Gentlemens-Corner.

 

I read Gourmet Table to stay informed about the most acclaimed chefs and five star fine dining establishments around the world and to learn about wines, how to bring home my favorite international flavors, and more!  I always check out the archives to find great articles.  From “A Table: Summer Tea and the Perfect Pitcher,” to “A Gemstone of a Wine,” to “Carnet Recipe: Bistecca alla Fiorentina Recipe,” to “Alain Ducasse,” Carnet’s Gourmet Table Magazine has me covered with news about restaurants in all my favorite cities, plus gourmet recipes, wine recommendations, and more.

Visiting New York This Spring? Find the Best Events and Things to Do Including Broadway Shows to See

I am so glad that I found insider tips for my upcoming trip to New York City!  I’ve already made plans to see the Broadway Play “Lucky Guy” starring Tom Hanks at the Broadhurst Theater during my visit.  It was tough to decide on just one show as there are so many good plays on Broadway this spring like “Matilda the Musical” at the Shubert and “The Trip to Bountiful” at the Sondeim.

 

Over in Midtown West, again a tough choice, but I got tickets for “The Nance” at the Lincoln Center Theater.  The competition was stiff with other events like a 4 week run of a new play about the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti called “Three Trees” at the Pan Asian Repertory Theatre on the Upper West Side and also Debby Boone performing at the Café Carlyle.  I’m going to try to squeeze in (timewise and budgetwise) the musical mystery “Bunnicula” in Union Square at the DR2 Theater.

There are always a lot of great things to do in New York City, and it really helps to have insider tips when planning your visit.  I get my tips from TravelWithCarnet.com. If you want to be in-the-know on the best events in your favorite cities to visit, check out Travel With Carnet

Find the Best Things to Do on Your Vacation, Including 5 Star Fine Dining and High Fashion Shopping

Image

I love Travel with Carnet because the website and travel guides make it easy to plan my luxury vacations!  When I use Carnet, I know that I’m staying at luxury hotels, eating the best cuisine, and shopping in the most fashionable areas of each city I visit.  Carnet helps me to get around some of the world’s most cultural cities and squeeze everything in to my itinerary that I want to do.  Traveling has never been so luxurious and so easy!  You can view Carnet mini guides here.

Where to Shop
Love to shop?  The mini guide lists a number of fashionable boutiques and even designer flagships in Paris.  For New York City, the mini guide honors Bloomingdale’s and other original New York department stores, calling them “Meccas.”  The Milan mini guide informs travelers of the best shopping areas in Milan, which is truly a shopper’s paradise.

Tourist Trapped
One of my favorite segments in the Carnet mini guide is called Tourist Trapped.  This segment includes quirky tips to help travelers decide for themselves if a famous tourist attraction is really just a tourist trap.  For example, in the Paris mini guide, Carnet offers travelers tips on how to get the best experience out of an Eiffel Tower visit, like how to avoid lines and where to find the best views of the city.  The London mini guide provides information about the reality of visiting Stonehenge.  I really appreciate Carnet’s honest approach.

Where to Eat
The mini guides also provide tips on where and what to eat in each city.  The guide recommends Soto for delicious Japanese cuisine in New York City.  Traveling to Paris?  The Carnet mini guide not only recommends a number of excellent Parisian restaurants, but also provides information on some popular Parisian specialties, including Salade gourmande, foie gras with a string bean salad.

I love the way the Travel with Carnet web site is organized.  The design reflects Carnet’s dedication to luxury and fashion, and there are many ways to browse, save, and store helpful travel information.  I can even save Carnet’s suggested itineraries to my TravelCarnet on my mobile phone.  Carnet’s guides are designed for culture seekers and foodies who like to walk the best neighborhoods in a city when they travel.

Whether I’m traveling in Europe or visiting one of my favorite American cities, Carnet is my favorite trip planner.  Carnet makes it easy to plan a luxurious trip filled with fine dining, culture rich entertainment, and fashionable shopping.
