New York ❤️ Glasgow!

Just spotted a feature on the New York post on the 9 hottest things to do in Glasgow now. 

Got to say they were pretty accurate ranging from free venues like all of the cities museums to the occasionally expensive with the One Devonshire Gardens stay. 

Everyone I know tells me that I would love New York and I do really want to go.   I was brought up on movies featuring those famous city scenes West Side Story, On The Town, Breakfast At Tiffanys, Coogans Bluff, Midnight Cowboy, The Godfather, The French Connection etc. 

But with all this good stuff on my doorstep why would I ever want to leave Glasgow??!!  🙂

A few additional personal personal favourites  – 

The Hydro

Only opened two years ago and is the second most visited concert concert venue outwith New Yorks own Madison Square Gardens. 

That’s not including the other adjacent venues of The SEC and The Clyde Auditorum. Sometimes all three venues have events simultaneously. 

In fact Glasgow has a huge range of concert venues catering for all tastes and sizes including classical at The City Halls, raucous rock at The Barrowland Ballroom and The O2 Academy, terrific tributes at The Ferry or go see the latest unsigned acts at King Tuts where many bands were signed including Oasis. 

Glasgow just rocks. 

The Art Lovers Cafe

Lunch at House For An Art Lover the Charles Rennie McIntosh designed building and add a walk around the beautiful Victorian walled gardens in Bellahouston Park.   

Loch Lomond

 Glasgow is the gateway to the highlands and a mere 30 minute drive will take you to Balmaha on the shores of Loch Lonond.  From there a quick stroll up Conic Hill in 30 minues and if you time it right you can watch the sunset over Loch Lomond as I did recently. 

Celtic Park

When Celtic are playing at home in a  Champions League game,  you won’t get a better atmosphere anywhere.
