She said she wanted to avoid too many museums. Big Grin

RE: My first trip to the US!
go to the top of the Empire State Building....once during the day, then again at night. It will blow your mind. Go to Times Square- check it all out. Check for cheap airfare out of NYC and spend 2 days in another city.

I wouldnt waste time in museums either, not that I don't like them-- i love them, but when I travel someplace new- I want to experience it. I like to get to the highest point and take it all in.

RE: My first trip to the US!
If your ever around Michigan I recommend checking out Mackinac City and Mackinac Island. With Mackinac City, At night you can see the Mackinac Bridge lit up(image 1) and there's an old military fort nearby called Fort Milichimackinac(image 2) , then you can take a ferry to Mackinac island which is a huge island out in the middle of the water filled with old homes and buildings and shops and a giant hotel (image 3). No cars except emergency vehicles on the island, you can get around via bikes, horse drawn carriage or walking and they have amazing fudge Tongue If you cant afford to see the island, the city is still a very cool place with a beach and swimming.

RE: My first trip to the US!
NYC is cool in its own way and, perhaps I'm biased by my upbringing, but in my opinion it's the variety of natural landscapes that make the U.S. interesting. I'd take a hot air balloon ride in the Adirondacks (northern New York state) any day over touristy stuff in a crowded city.

Or better yet, hit up Alaska, Arizona, and Hawaii on the same vacation for some ridiculous variety and some sights that simply don't exist elsewhere. You will enjoy NYC and Boston, no doubt. But that's only a fraction of the American experience.
