Walking around New York city is an experience to have.
Be very careful when driving because if you miss an exit it'll take long time to get back in track
This trip started in Orlando City in the southern state of Florida. There we stayed for more than a week in a friend's house. We went to some Disney parks: Disney world and Animal Kingdom, both parks were huge and beautiful, they had stores, restaurants, museums and lots of attractions for tourists. Its important if you're in a group to be always near to each other, distances are long and they are very crowded places. From both parks I specially enjoyed Animal kingdom because you get to see different animals and nice performances like the Lion King Musical. We also got to walk around Orlando's downtown and visited a bar and walk around Lake Eola Park where you can have a beautiful view of the city.
Our road trip continued and we went to Greenville - South Carolina to visit family and then continued to Washington.
In Washington we stayed for just one night and we could visit some of the Smithsonian museums. There's a lot of art to watch. It's also nice and near to go watch some representative buildings and monuments like the Lincoln memorial, The Washington monument, the White House, and the Capitol building. All these places are really amazing to watch, they are huge and represent the American society.
Next stop was New York city. The big apple as it's usually known is a monumental city. From the moment you get to watch the skyline you get this feeling of astonishment. In New York there's plenty on things to do, specially walking around manhattan appreciating the amazing architecture, the huge skyscrapers and of course the beautifully huge central park. If possible go visit the MET, it's one of the museums with largest art and historical collections. Go grab some pizza in Brooklyn after crossing the Brooklyn bridge from which you can have one of the most beautiful views of the city. At night we went to Hell's Kitchen to visit some pubs and nightclubs. We missed going to the statue of liberty but still there's more to watch around every corner. We also went to the koreatown to have a delicious dinner to go then walking to the Times square and be amazed by all the lights and bubbling city environment.
Our last stop in the trip was a one night stand in Boston - Massachussets, we got to walk the downtown and discovered a beautiful well preserved city, very clean and organized and nice people. Quincy market was one of the highlights of this Boston trip, it's a place where you can find a lot of different food from all around the world.
Q & A
Anything go wrong during the trip?
We didn't take the right exit while driving the highway and we had an hour and a half detour from our itinerary. So be very careful
What tips would you give a friend?
Diney parks are very crowded so choose wisely the attractions you're going to because you can spend up to 3 hours in line to enter an attraction.
The New York subway is a very complex system but very useful and fast to visit different laces so look for a map or advice to ride it.
