Big Apple

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Central Park and Empire State Building. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examine the collection at New York Public Library, take in panoramic vistas at Top of the Rock, and admire the striking features of Rockefeller Center.

The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
Bring the kids along to National Air and Space Museum and White House. When in Washington DC, make a side trip to see Mount Vernon Trail in Arlington, approximately Arlington away. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, pause for some photo ops at Washington Monument, get a sense of history and politics at United States Capitol, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park.
