May 2017 City of the Month: Tokyo May 01 2017
Tokyo is Japan's capital and the world's most populous metropolis city. Prior to 1868, Tokyo was known as Edo. A small castle town in the 16th century, Edo became Japan's political center in 1603 when Tokugawa Leyasu established his feudal government there. Today, Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. Tradition collides with pop culture in Tokyo, where you can reverently wander ancient temples before rocking out at a karaoke bar. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa,and in many excellent museums,historic temples and gardens. Catch the fish auction at the Tsukiji Market, take a refreshing walk beneath the cherry blossom trees that line the Sumida River, spend some time in the beautiful East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, or learn some more about Japanese history at the Edo-Tokyo Museum. Anywhere you go Tokyo will allow you to find something breathtaking and new to experience.

January 2017 City of the Month New York, New York January 01 2017
Today more than 8 million "New Yorkers" live in the five boroughs of the large island city. The city’s diversity and vibrant intellectual life, makes the vast city our nations cultural capital. Many of the tourist that come and visit the city hit all the must-sees – the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art – very few then explore off the beaten path with visits to The Cloisters or one of the city’s libraries. I encourage anyone to indulge in the bohemian shops of the West Village or the fine dining of the Upper West Side. The bustling marketplace inside of Grand Central Station gives you a literal taste of the best the city has to offer! All of which give an interesting out look on the life of a "New Yorker".In honor of the city Loose Petals is offering $5.00 off any non-sale city organic print size 8 x 10 or larger for the month of January 2017!

One of Chicago's biggest city attraction is all the shops along Michigan Ave. Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile.
