New York Celebrity Travel

Feeling inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker's poufy skirts? Be ready for packed hotels - New York travel is hot this year. And by the time Sex and the City is released in North America, European glamour queens will already be all over New York. The London premiere (complete with Carrie) happened Monday night, and the Berlin opening is tomorrow.

Sex and the City London Premiere: Zibi/WENNSex and the City London Premiere: Zibi/WENNGeorge Fertitta, CEO of NYC & Company (they run nycvisit.com) is excited about the movie's global scope: "It shows the texture, the glamour, the excitement, the fun, the nightspots and the shopping. So we're looking forward to the film and being able to remind everybody what an incredible place New York City is to live and of course to visit."

Until the movie comes out, I'm planning my NYC visit without the help of my favorite foursome. New York tourism is prepared for the flood of smart, sexy visitors the movie is bringing in. They're offering a guide to the hottest clubs, and they've dragged in scores of celebs to spread their secrets to doing New York like a pro.

The best part of their publicity stunt is that the celebs they've pulled in come from worlds beyond the silver screen. Ivanka Trump tells you how to do the city like a hot business woman, while the city's fashion elite give you the inside scoop on shopping the city like a pro. Unfortunately, the amount of walking involved means you might have to spend a little time in flats.

According to Julianne Moore, your feet aren't the only ones that'll get tired when you try to hit the pavement like a New Yorker. Her top tip for travelers is that "even if your kids say they want to walk, bring the stroller." Sounds like she's been stuck cutting her shopping short more than once.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
