Yada, Yada, Yada … An Immersive Seinfeld Experience Is Coming to NYC This Fall

Last week marked the 30th anniversary of the pilot episode of Seinfeld. Throughout the 180 episodes that followed, it went on to become one of the most memorable, successful, and quotable series in TV history. If you’ve been dying to relive the show’s glory days, this fall you’ll get your chance when The Seinfeld Experience debuts in New York City.

Like the show, it should be an experience about … nothing. Instead, the creators promise a genuine immersion “in the world of Seinfeld through an exploration of classic show moments and beloved characters.” It will feature show memorabilia, costumes, life-sized set recreations, and authentic props (fingers crossed for Jerry’s iconic puffy shirt or Putty’s leather 8 Ball jacket). There will, of course, be an exclusive gift shop as well where visitors can score limited edition swag to re-gift later. No word on a muffin top cafe or a militant all-soup restaurant though. No soup for us?

In his imitable fashion, Jerry Seinfeld gave his wry, trademark stamp of approval — sort of. He said in a statement: “Because I am Seinfeld, for a long time I was the only person to actually have the Seinfeld experience. Now, these crazy Superfly people are going to make it so lots of people can interact with our silly 90’s TV show. All I can say is, in the general context of the world we live in, this now seems completely normal.” From one of the world’s driest comic geniuses, that’s about as good as it gets.

The experience is the brainchild of Superfly, a company that does nothing but create seriously awesome interactive experiences. It was the creative force behind Bonnaroo, Comedy Central Presents Colossal Clusterfest, and a reimagining of the annual Google I/O conference in 2016. Given their past home runs with similar experiences, we expect The Seinfeld Experience to be far more “real and spectacular” than Hulu’s modest and short-lived Seinfeld: The Apartment fan experience in 2015.

Beyond the Gramercy location and general dates, Superfly has released few details about The Seinfeld Experience. For the legions of uber-fans who still watch the show in syndication and celebrate Festivus each year, that’s unlikely to matter. Tickets go on sale this summer, and the experience is expected to run from fall 2019 through early 2020.

The Muraka at Conrads Rangali Island

The Godfather taught us that “sleeping with the fishes” is rarely a good thing, but, some of the world’s swankiest hotels are reimagining what’s possible in a luxury overnight stay in a way that includes legit undersea hotel suites with out-of-this-world views. Here are nine of the world’s most incredible underwater hotels and hotel rooms.

Rangali Island, The Maldives

With its overwater bungalows and stunning private island retreats, The Maldives is already home to some of the world's most over-the-top hotels. Conrad’s Rangali Island upped the ante in 2018 with the opening of its $15-million The Muraka. Billed as “the world’s first underwater villa,” the private, two-story suite is the pinnacle of honeymoon-worthy luxury.

Airstream’s new travel trailer fits a swanky studio apartment into less than 17 feet of living space
This pint-sized "silver bullet" epitomizes compact luxury RV living
Kitchen and bedroom setup inside the Airstream Caravel 16RB travel trailer.

Few brands symbolize the Great American Road Trip like Airstream. On the outside, its iconic aluminum travel trailers have changed little since the last century, and for our money, that's a very good thing. Across the lineup, however, the interiors have evolved into something altogether different. They're more polished, more luxurious — even downright swanky — and we're not talking about just the flagship models that sell for well north of $150,000.

The new Airstream Caravel 16RB offers many of the same upscale features and specs of its pricier brethren in one of the company's most compact footprints ever. But don't let the diminutive size of this Airstream camper fool you. Airstream managed to pack all the amenities of a modern luxury apartment into just under 17 feet -- how's that for van life?. That has us seriously reconsidering our current living situation.

Rail bike tours are the soft adventure trend for anyone who loves the nostalgia of train travel
Riding the rails isn't just for wayward vagabonds. These rail bike tours are an exciting way to see the world.

"Do you even rail bike, bro?" You’ll probably be asked this question dozens of times this summer by anyone from your most extreme adrenalin-addicted friends to your grandmother’s sweet old knitting buddies. That’s because the newest bucket-list adventure activity on Earth is beloved by adventure seekers of all ages.

Put simply, rail bike tours involve riding pedal-powered (and sometimes even electric) machines along abandoned or disused railroad tracks that no longer carry train traffic. Rail bike tours are relatively new over the last few years, and they're expanding all over the world, making use of defunct rail lines that traverse scenic natural areas. Here's a closer look at the best rail bike tour operators and where to find them.
