Originally I'm from Massachusetts. Lived right outside of Boston in Brockton, easy to get in the city and do stuff. When I got to high school due to my parents job placement we moved to New Hampshire. Ive tried moving since, but financially and due to health haven't been able to move. I know everyone refers to it as the "Alabama of the north" but thats if you go far past Concord, where I'm from. Stay Concord and south and east and you're totally fine. Portsmouth NH is like a smaller version of Portland Maine, its quite nice.

I'm from NYC originally and have lived in the area(suburbs now) pretty much my entire life except for about 6 years when I was in college and grad school in the Central NY area.

I'm hoping to take my first trip to London in 2021 when JetBlue starts service there

Hey Yankeefan7-Nice to meet you,  I have been to many part of the US on holiday since a small kid in the 80's!

"What did you do the 3 times you came to London, And what other parts of the UK would you like to visit?"

We have done things like Westminster Abbey, Tower Of London, London Eye, tour of Houses Of Parliament and changing of the guard etc. I am a big tennis fan and although I could not attend a Wimbledon match, my wonderful wife set up a tour of Wimbledon for me that was just awesome !! We have have stayed all three times at a hotel called "The Reubens" which is by Buckingham Palace and we love that hotel. My wife and daughters have done the "English Tea" service there and had wonderful time. Being so close to Buckingham Palace we also went to the Royal Mews which was very neat. Of course, we have gone to a bunch of West End shows which have included "Hamilton", "Matilda", "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime", "The Play That Goes Wrong", Singing In The Rain", "Les Miserables" and "Harry Potter And The Cursed Child". My daughters have both danced professionally in the US so we have also gone to the Royal Ballet to see "The Nutcracker" our last visit in 2018.

As for outside of London, we have been to Stonehenge, Oxford, Hampton Court and Harry Potter Studio. Personally, I would love to go to Liverpool, I am big Beatle fan -lol. My wife and I would like to go to Scotland one day also. We are looking into another trip to London in spring of 2021 if all goes well. My wife's family on her Mothers side were British so she really into British history and royalty.

Next time you go to London-You should do the classics-The London Dungeon + Madame Tussauds among others

I have seen all them West End shows you have mentioned except-Hamilton, But from what I have seen of the adverts on TV-And when I saw a segement of it on the well known Awards Show-The Olivier Awards back in 2018 it looked alright-What did you think of it?

I also like watching -The Tony Awards on TV when here in the UK Where is everyone from? 

How comes you didn't mention that you had visited other parts of the UK in your last message. As you just mentioned you had been to London 3 times lol?

So you been to multiple places  arond the UK-Yea go to Liverpool why not got loads to do there and like you said esp for-The Beatles fans Where is everyone from? 

So when your wife and her mum and dad move to US then, Or are talking about a lot further back than that?

Also next time you come-Have a family day out and some of our Theme Parks/Water Parks-Sure you kow of some of them like-Alton Towers, Chessington-World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Legoland Windsor etc 

Also come to parts of Kent of where I am from and/or Surrey,   etc

I absolutely loved "Hamilton", saw it on Broadway with the OBC and another time in London. The music, dancing and US History story makes it a wonderful night of theater IMO. If you go to see the show, I would advise listening to recording of the show first, I know I did not catch every word the first time - lol

"I also like watching -The Tony Awards on TV when here in the UK"

That is very nice to know, glad you enjoy it. There are rarely any big surprise winners but it is worth watching for the performances.

"How comes you didn't mention that you had visited other parts of the UK in your last message. As you just mentioned you had been to London 3 times lol?"

I did not think of mentioning it until you asked in post if I had been to other places in UK.

"So when your wife and her mum and dad move to US then, Or are talking about a lot further back than that?"

My wife and her Mom were born in the US, it was her great grandparents who lived in the UK.

"Also next time you come-Have a family day out and some of our Theme Parks/Water Parks-Sure you kow of some of them like-Alton Towers, Chessington-World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Legoland Windsor etc 

Also come to parts of Kent of where I am from and/or Surrey,   etc"

My wife does most of the planning on trips to London, I usually make one or two suggestions (like Liverpool) and leave the rest up to her. If our grown daughters come along, my oldest daughter will help my wife with planning - lol. We usually go for 5-6 days and we are constantly on the move - ha ha. Thanks for your suggestions.

I have already heard the cast recording for-Hamilton-A few of my friends own it Where is everyone from? 

So if you watch: The Tony Awards, You must watch: The Olivier Awards as well then! 

Just when I asked what other places in the UK you would like to go to as you only mentioned London-So thought you hadn't been anywhere else but London lol

Ah I see, So it was her great grandparents who lived in the UK Where is everyone from? 

So as your wife's Mother side is British,  does she still keep in contact with any of them-So when you stay in the UK you can stay there?

Well I'm very glad you will try and fit in some of what I suggested,  I mean you obviously know of the iconic Dungeon + Madamme Tussauds Attractions-And  you have not been to them ones in London. Have you been to them on other countries like your homeland of the US which is in Francisco?

So you say you are next coming here in Spring 2021, Long time away but something to look forward too Where is everyone from?

I believe it is held Apr 5th this year, hope to catch it.

"So as your wife's Mother side is British,  does she still keep in contact with any of them-So when you stay in the UK you can stay there?"

The only one still alive on her British side of the family is an older cousin who lives in the US (Florida). They have not seen each other in about 5 years.

"So you say you are next coming here in Spring 2021, Long time away but something to look forward too"

The plan is to come at that time but things can obviously change.

Yea thats is right, If you can't watch it live, Then just record it for later

"The only one still alive on her British side of the family is an older cousin who lives in the US (Florida). They have not seen each other in about 5 years."

Oh ok so no living relatives in the UK, And how old is the older cousin that lives in-Florida?

"The plan is to come at that time but things can obviously change."

Yea exactly anything can happen, And you might come before that so play it by ear!

Wow, very cool !! I hate to admit but when I was born it was Nassau Hospital -lol. My wife worked at Winthrop a bunch of years in the new born nursery area before we moved to Charlotte. Actually, my wife, myself and our oldest daughter were born at this hospital.

People on public discussion boards shouldnt reveal their real names....that's why you wont get answers ..esp when discussing where they live.

BTW, I'm in Boston.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

No, my wife and I are not real fans of wax museums.

I agree with dramamama611 and don't believe in giving out real name on public discussion boards. 

"Yea thats is right, If you can't watch it live, Then just record it for later"

I will be out of town so will have to find way to watch it at later date.

"Oh ok so no living relatives in the UK, And how old is the older cousin that lives in-Florida?"

That is personal and something I don't want to divulge.

Yankeefan7-

"Fair enough-But Madame Tussauds has some different things in them as you know, Like the Londo one has a Dark Ride-Going through the decades-Spirt of London. Also Sherlock Holmes Experience,  Alien: Escape  etc" 

Them first 3 I mentioned at  one in London-The cother countries don't have! Also next door-London has the 4D Cinema which as you rmember used to be the very old: Planetarium

+ London Dungeons obviously is not a Wax Muesum Where is everyone from? 

I agree with dramamama611 and don't believe in giving out real name on public discussion boards. 

"I was just curious as you know my first name, Doesn't bother me that you do"

I will be out of town so will have to find way to watch it at later date.

"Yea record it then watch another time-That it was it is there for!"

That is personal and something I don't want to divulge.

"I could understand if I was asking for her home address as that is personal indeed, But was only asking how old she was :-/
Was  only making convo!

Born and raised in North Carolina.

After college left NC for Washington, DC where I landed a job that sent me to Naranjito, Puerto Rico first, then to south central Pennsylvania. 

Spent a bunch of years in PA before moving to Montgomery County, Maryland for my current gig.

Likely retiring next year to the Phoenix, Arizona metro area.

Never been to Great Britain but it's on my bucket list.

Evil people lurk on the web looking for clues about how to steal your idenity...giving real names and locations help them do that.

And no, I know nothing of Pammys.
