Washington DC

This is one of the cities in USA, jam-packed with so much to do that even a week falls short to cover all. Start your tour with the most prominent U S Capitol and the Supreme Court. Next go back in time through the National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Coming back to the present discover the beautiful streets of Georgetown. And finally make a visit to the captivating Lincoln memorial and U S Marine Corps War memorial.

New York

Any number of trips you make to New York, you will always be in awe by the gamut of sights, restaurants, museums and activities the city offers. Some of the much hyped things to do include a visit to Times Square, top of the Empire State Building and the Circle Line tour. Alternatively to these you can enjoy the views from top of The Rocks saving you some bucks. Also take upon the better yet free Staten Island ferry and the New York Water Taxi. Instead of running behind getting on top of Statue of Liberty better relish the far away views and get closer as you take the Staten Island ferry.

San Francisco

This hilly city is well known for its iconic Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and colorful Victorian houses, all blanketed by the year- round fog. Besides this a visit to the Alcatraz Island is full of stories of chills for the innocents and cold sweats for those guilty. Today the main attractions of Alcatraz are ‘This Is Indian Land’ water-tower graffiti, the cell blocks and rare wildlife. The Golden Gate Park is where you will find everything dear to the San Franciscans, be it music, arts, bonsai, Frisbee and more. Explore San Francisco with a City Pass to save upto 40% on admission to attractions.

Chicago

Any visit to Chicago is undone without a visit to Millennium Park, art institute of Chicago, Shedd aquarium, Adler planetarium, 360 Chicago (formerly John Hancock observatory) and the Lincoln Park zoo. Another iconic piece of architecture is the Cloud Gate where you get some of the best reflections. Apart from these you can go on a Museum tour covering the field museum and the museum of science and industry.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the centre of the nation’s film and television industry and any trip here is incomplete without a behind the scenes tour curated by studios such as Paramount Pictures, Universal and Warner Brothers. On the Hollywood Boulevard, the Walk of Fame honors thousands of luminaries and vendors sell maps to stars’ homes. Further take a visit to the art deco landmark- Griffith Observatory that features a high-tech planetarium, public telescopes & city views. Besides this, there’s more to Los Angeles from Santa Monica Pier, to a Brea Tar Pits, Universal City Walk, J. Paul Getty Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art.

Boston

Start with a stroll in Paul Revere Park by the Charles River followed by a historic walk to the 16 prominent locations through the downtown Boston. Revere’s legendary ride began at Paul Revere House, a restored Colonial-era home, which includes family furnishings. Another worth an experience is the New England Aquarium, a giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway. Above this you can end your trip on a historical note as you visit the Historic Unitarian Christian church founded in 1686 and the Boston Common.

With this as you are done travelling in the cities in USA, you would have covered all landscapes from the city buzz to the red rock of Grand Canyon. No matter in what setting of nature you are in you will have the best time to relish for your life.
