Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and Battleship USS Iowa BB-61. Step out of the city life by going to Santa Monica Bay and Breakwater Way Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Los Angeles: Oceanside (Oceanside Strand & The Graves House), Temecula (Chapin Family Vineyards & Mount Palomar Winery) and American Museum of Ceramic Art (in Pomona). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at The Getty Center, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, enjoy the sand and surf at Bluff Park, and explore the world behind art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and Washington Square Park. Bushkill Falls and Grounds For Sculpture will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Dingmans Falls (in Dingmans Ferry), Black Rock Forest Consortium (in Cornwall) and Angry Orchard (in Walden). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Ground Zero Museum Workshop, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, shop like a local with SoHo, and take some stellar pictures from Top of the Rock.
