We’ve long been fans of the talented Mr. Banksy, ever since we did that Babesta Beat photoshoot with Katrina Tang (check our video out here) where we recreated some of his most famous works (Pranksy & the Playground Mob)! We just went to see the immersive Banksy exhibit in NYC, which is a fun afternoon and will inspire some good, provocative family conversation around topics like consumerism, war, equity, police, government or, if that's not their bag, at least about apes & rats :)
One of our favorite off beat things to do in(ish) the city! For residents and visitors alike, a mini-get away (with a tremendous view) to Governor's island to glamp overnight at the Collective Retreats property. Great food, great fun for a date-overnight or with the whole fam. Check it out!
Looking for an autumn getaway full of foliage? Let us recommend Winvian Farm, just a few miles north in beautiful Litchfield Hills, Connecticut. The 113 acre property features 18 individually designed resort cottages, some with quirky themes. Kids' choice: the helicopter cottage, a hanger with fully restored 1968 Sikorsky Coast Guard rescue chopper parked inside. If that's not your speed, choose the tree-house, 35-feet in the air, or a golf cottage where you and the kids can putt your way around the room.
