If you thought rural beauty and big city parties couldn’t co-exist, then New England is here to prove you wrong. One day you could be surrounded by iconic sky-scrapers in New York City then the next day driving through the red and orange autumnal hues of New England’s back-roads. But perhaps you would prefer to admire the beauty of one of America’s greatest lakes with the man-made skyline of Chicago behind you. Or maybe you’ll visit some of the world’s finest museums in Boston before finding a tasty lobster shack along its scenic coast.
Regardless of which city or town you choose, there is one thing the whole of Eastern USA offers and that’s historical significance. Walk the famous political corridors of Washington DC and pay a visit to the monuments along National Mall. Visit the birthplace of America in Philadelphia, a city that boasts the oldest street in the USA and stepped in as the temporary capital while DC was built. Open the textbooks in Boston, a city that is highly regarded as one of the top hubs of education in the world. Then complete your historical tour in New York City by watching the sun set behind the silhouette of the Statue of Liberty.
