Autumn Adventures

Summer is coming to a close, and now we get to look forward to Autumn and the adventures that go along with it. There are plenty of things to do in NYC and Hoboken this Fall, and Dharma Home Suites has found them for you. Check out our FALLing for NY blog for all the details about Fall Fashion Week, New York Film Festival, and New York Comic Con.

Not willing to say goodbye to warm weather? Summers are longer in South Florida , and so are the savings. September and October are great times to visit South Florida. The kids are back in school, and peak tourist season has not yet begun, so you can avoid crowds and get the best bang for your buck when going to one of Miami’s many world class restaurants. The Miami Spice restaurant prefix program is still running through September, and we picked the best participating restaurants closest to Dharma’s Miami properties just for you.

Although it isn’t peak season yet, there are still plenty of things to do near our Miami and Dania Beach properties. Here are just a few:



Close to not one, but three Dharma properties - Monte Carlo , Red Road Commons , and Grand Plaza - is the Frost Museum of Science, which is hosting the Sherlock Holmes Exhibition. Step into Victorian London and help solve a mystery using “new” Victorian policing methods of forensic science. You will meet various characters - some who may be up to no good - who will give you clues along the way. Once you have finished solving the mystery, you will be treated to a gallery of Sherlock Holmes paraphernalia - from the books to the movies to the television show. There is even an Educator’s Guide for those of you who would like to make it more of a learning experience for your kids.

Cost: Included in the cost of $29.95 admission
When: through Sept.5
Where: Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Miami

So good that they just can’t wait until October, Wynwood’s Octoberfest runs from September 9th-11th at the Wynwood Marketplace, just a few miles from our ocean front apartment suites at Monte Carlo. You can sample seasonal brews, play beer games, and enjoy great German food while listening to live music. They even have special dog-activities for your furry best friend.

Cost: Admission is free, but there are packages available for food and drink
When: Sept. 9-11
Where: Wynwood Marketplace, Miami

Join Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Master Splinter while they train in their underground lair to defeat the villains that infest New York City. Miami Children's Museum special Ninja Turtles’ interactive exhibit is just a short ride from Dharma’s fully furnished apartment rentals at Grand Plaza in Coral Gables. The four funny “heroes in a half shell” will help kids learn the value of teamwork by joining collaborative games, navigating rope mazes, and creating a sewer pipe together.

When: through Sept. 11
