Urban living is notoriously expensive, but in trade you gain access to modern facilities and a lot of amenities. These amenities go so much further than good public access to your work. You have bars, restaurants, cafes, galleries, and museums. You also have access to an untold amount of events, from music gigs to sports games to live talks and so much more. If you don’t go out to these events, you aren’t making the most of your city living. Don’t miss another great event again and know what’s happening in your city with these top tips:
Using Social Media
While social media won’t be able to help you as much if the event is only there for one night or even just the day, it can be very beneficial to find recurring events like art exhibits, markets, and so on. To do this, simply use the location search or the hashtag function to find events in your city. You will have to scroll through a lot of unrelated content, of course, but if you are willing to hunt through the photos, you can find some really fun and interesting events and exhibits to see.
Using Event Websites
Using Event Websites
When in doubt, go to event websites. This is particularly true for music, comedy, or sporting events as they are highly publicized. You won’t find everything on them, of course – the local bar down the street is unlikely to publish their live jazz night on an event website – but all the big names in sport, music, comedy and more are sure to be on them. So head over to Ticket Sales to see what’s on in your city, and book a few events to spice up your workweek – especially for date night.
Use Local Area Publications
The bigger the city, the more boroughs act as their own entities. This means that if you want to find all the latest in your area, you should find out what your local publications are. These can be found on social media, yes, but chances are they will have a website or magazine that you can subscribe to. Know all the latest events first-hand, so that you never have to miss a thing!
Check Local Bulletins
When you do go out, always remember to check the local bulletins. Stores, restaurants, bars, and even outdoor signs will all have notices of events, sales, markets, and more that will occur in your town. You don’t have to go too far out of your way to find these, either, just keep an eye out for when you are out and about, and if you see something that interests you take a picture of it, find it online, and put it into your online calendar.
There is so much to see and do in a city, and only when you make an effort to go out and enjoy these events can you truly enjoy where you live. Get out more, see things you love, meet new people, and become a part of the community.
