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.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Fri): learn more about the world around you at Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and then ponder the world of politics at White House. Here are some ideas for day two: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at National Zoological Park, examine the collection at National Air and Space Museum, and then appreciate the history behind Washington Monument.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Bring the kids along to Central Park and Empire State Building. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, enjoy breathtaking views from Top of the Rock, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and see the interesting displays at 9/11 Memorial.

Plan my New York City trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
