Block Party Beats in Boston
Make the most of the New England summer with The Boston Calling Block Party series held in Boston’s Dewey Square Park every Thursday throughout the season! The free weekly series features live music from the likes of DJ Frank White, Rob Pagnano, East Coast Soul and more along with beer, wine, and lawn games. After enjoying the sounds of the city, retreat back to the intimate and critically acclaimed XV Beacon nestled in the heart of Beacon Hill – just a 15-minute walk from Dewey Square Park. Guests can make a weekend of it with the hotel’s Summer in The City package offering 15% off best available rates on stays of two nights or more, as well as an upgrade based on availability upon arrival.
Nautical Jams in NYC
Manhattan city-goers can hop on board Circle Line and enjoy a specialty summer concert series, Rockin’ the River Music Cruises. Experience the sounds of the city from the Hudson River aboard a state-of-the-art Bronx Class boat. Circle Line passengers will enjoy live music from bands including Willie Nile, James Maddock, The Nerds and more. On board, passengers will have access to a fully stocked bar as well as some of the best views New York has to offer, including the Statue of Liberty. After rocking out on the Hudson, travelers can lay their heads to rest at Park Terrace Hotel, a 226-room sweet escape in Midtown Manhattan not too far from Circle Line’s Pier 83. Guests can also relish in the sophisticated, year-round Terrazzo, which by day offers a complimentary Breakfast Bar—complete with New York favorites including Murray’s cheese and Zucker’s bagels—and by night serves refreshing cocktails and light bites.
Southwestern Sounds at The Woodlands
A short 5-minute drive from The Woodlands Resort, music lovers can get their live-music fix at The Woodlands’ premier Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Celebrating its 30th anniversary as a fine arts venue, travelers and locals alike can sit back and enjoy the 2019 season’s headliners such as Leon Bridges, Dave Matthews Band, Third Eye Blind, Beck, Cage the Elephant, Zac Brown Band, and more. Concertgoers can extend their visit to the Texas Piney Woods with The Woodlands Resort’s seasonal Waterpark Wonderland Package, where they’ll be treated to two nights of overnight accommodations, a $50 dining credit, and a 2 PM checkout on their last day before singing their favorite tunes all the way home. No matter the music taste, there’s a song for every family member to sing to.
