The year is wrapping up, which means it’s time to nail down your resolutions for 2014. Whether the goal is specific like improving your golf swing or general like reducing stress, deals around New York City will help you reach it – so you can check off “be thriftier” at the same time.
Perfect your golf game
If golf is the preferred sport of American business, than perfecting your putt is a wise investment. Learn from a pro with a private golf lesson at Golf Manhattan for 34% off through Travelzoo. Practice what you learned with a $49 deal for the simulator at Chelsea Piers, featuring 55 championship courses, or with a half-off bucket of balls and club rentals at the driving range.
Spend more time with loved ones
Rekindle romance with your significant other with a cozy weekend retreat. Inns across the Northeast are cutting winter rates, including the Essex Resort & Spa, where a $249 weekend package includes a spa credit and half off cooking classes. If you can’t get away that long, sneak in a couples massage or romantic dinner instead. For an activity the whole family can enjoy, consider kid-friendly shows like “Peter and the Starcatcher.”
Learn a new skill
These skills will help you make the most of your next vacation. Learn how to take the perfect photos during a photography workshop for 50% off, with class options including “Love Your Camera, Love Your Photos” and “Landscapes and Travel.” Or let your kids ask the locals to snap your photo with the Little Pim language program, with 11 languages to choose from.
Becoming a fitter, happier you is a favorite New Year’s resolution. Start by reducing stress and boosting your immune system with discounted massage packages around the city. Then work your lungs during an outdoor adventure such as a Central Park bike tour or an all-day hike through the Catskills, both half off.
