A great way to get to the pulse of a city is to check out some local entertainment offerings. Whether you’re on vacation or enjoying a weekend at home, attend a show or concert, check out a local museum, cheer on the local sports teams or have an adventure an amusement park. You’ll connect with locals and be purely entertained during your outing.
Travelzoo members are in love with the stunning acrobatics and drama of the Cirque du Soleil company. If theatrics are what you’re after, keep an eye out for deals on plays, musicals and comedy shows, both on and off Broadway.
If you are able to attend events mid-week, you’ll find significant savings in ticket price. If you’re spontaneous, there are often last-minute ticket deals to sporting events. Or if you’re a planner, get a special presale rate by booking very far in advance of a show’s premiere. And there are often family discount deals to be found if you’re purchasing four or more tickets together.
