“Our trip starts in the nation’s capital – Washington D.C. Here, you can visit the Capitol building. Walk along the National Mall to see the World War II Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. You can also see the White House, home to the president. There are many museums in D.C. as well, such as the National Gallery and the Museum of Natural History.

Next up is Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. Head to Independence National Park, where you can see the Liberty Bell as well as Independence Hall. This is where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were debated and adopted. The cultural heart of the city is the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Take a stroll along South Street, where you can admire some of the city’s public art. Another interesting place to visit is the Dream Garden. Don’t leave Philly without trying a cheesesteak. The two most famous places are Geno’s and Pat’s, and they’re located right next to each other.

Now it’s on to New York City. See the real Statue of Liberty, as well as an imposter. Take a stroll through Central Park, where you might find some street performers. Sit by the fountain and relax at Washington Square Park. See famous buildings, such as the One World Trade Center, the Flatirons, and 30 Rock. In the evening, catch a show on Broadway, or take a walk through Times Square. Be sure to try a dirty water dog while you’re there.

Finally, we head to Boston. Walk along the historic Freedom Trail where you’ll see sites such as the Old City Hall, the King’s Chapel, the Old State House, and Fanueil Hall. Seafood is big here, so try a bowl of the local specialty, clam chowder. Head to Cheers, where everybody knows your name, and have a Bloody Mary. Boston is a big sports town, so take in a ball game at Fenway, the oldest ballpark in the country. Wind it all down with a cold craft beer at Boston Beer Works.”
