Things are going to look quite posh around Goshen Friday night as high fashion and Porsches are the highlight of September’s First Fridays.
Between 5 and 6 p.m. Friday Porsches will start arriving on Lincoln Avenue for the Porsche show near the intersection of Lincoln and Main.
According to Kelly Kenny, event and media coordinator for Downtown Goshen Inc., 55 Porsches are expected at the event.
Jamaica: No other resort on the island is closer to Dunn’s River Falls than Jewel Dunn’s River Beach in Ocho Rios. Fitness junkies will love a day hiking the falls, playing the nine-hole pitch course, working up a sweat in the fitness center or swimming laps in one of two pools. After all that sweating, this all-inclusive tempts with plenty of chill-out options, including top-shelf mixers in the Emerald Tree Lounge, piquant platters of jerk chicken at the Aquamarina Beach Bar and a soak in a whirlpool tub in the Spa.
Punta Cana: For twosomes splurging on a high-end stay, Royal Service rooms at Paradisus Palma Real on Bavaro Beach include gratis cell phones for receiving international calls and unlimited green fees at the Cocotal Golf Club. Maroon 5, Charli XCX, Sam Smith, Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo and Iggy Azalea are among the artists featured on the four-minute song. Not even Bad Blood can keep Katy Perry and Taylor Swift off the same track: If sun loungers on endless stretches of sandy beaches , unlimited fine dining and starry nights aren’t enough, try an all-inclusive hotel with perks just for grown-ups.
Without distractions like teen discos and crowded buffets, a week in an adults-only is the big ticket to real relaxation. Check out the crème de la crème of kid-free all-inclusive resorts and you’ll soon be swapping pint-sized dinner plates for a couples massage on the beach. As the sophisticated smaller wing of a bigger resort, Royal Service includes access to three pools, unlimited pours at six bars, dinner at the upscale Passion restaurant and rubdowns at the spa. There are plenty of active traveler must-dos here as well, from snorkeling and scuba to volleyball on the beach and aerobic classes in the water.
“I talked to the president of the Michiana Porsche Club and his smile was from ear to ear talking about the event,” said Kenny. “So I think that really says it all”
