New York City — 6 nights

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step out of the city life by going to Valley Forge National Historical Park and Schuylkill River Trail. 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around New York City: Philadelphia (Todd House, Liberty Bell Center, &more). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Times Square, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Chapel, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and walk around Central Park.
