For Teri Johnson and Andrea Adams, traveling the world is a year-round pursuit. But with summer (unofficially) underway, it's as good a time as any to knock some cities off your travel bucket list. For the next eight weeks, the Travelistas are taking us along as they explore the sights and sounds and culinary delights of eight destinations, from the closer to home (New Orleans and Detroit) to the farther flung (Italy, Antigua, Mali and Johannesberg) -- but first, New York City!
Their first stop proves to be the perfect destination for a girlfriends' getaway, with some boutique shopping and celebrity sightings along the way.
After checking in to their hotel, Teri and Andrea head uptown to Harlem, where Andrea checks out the fashion scene at the trendy BebeNoir boutique.
Meanwhile, Teri takes in a little music history on an insider's tour of the legendary Apollo Theatre, and gets a taste of Harlem's contemporary jazz scene and some innovative "Soulful American" cuisine at Smoke Jazz & Supper Club.
To top off their New York jaunt, the Travelistas hit the red carpet of Steve Harvey's "Think Like a Man" New York City premiere, where they chatted it up with cast members Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union and more.
