Washington DC

— 4 nights
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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at National Air and Space Museum and Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Capitol Hill. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Washington DC: Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (in Harpers Ferry), Fell's Point (in Baltimore) and Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Art, pause for some photo ops at Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and wander the streets of Old Town.

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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate 9/11 Memorial and St. James General Store. Let the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Alex Ferrone Gallery capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Wright's Farm and Fruit Stand (in Gardiner), Callie's Candy Kitchen (in Mountainhome) and Sam's Point Preserve (in Cragsmoor). And it doesn't end there: admire the sheer force of Bushkill Falls, take a stroll through Times Square, browse the eclectic array of goods at Chelsea Market, and look for all kinds of wild species at Island Beach State Park.
