Niagara's raging waterfalls
. The White House and the Vashington Capitol
. Museum of the Declaration of Independence
. The most popular places in New York City.
A journey that combines everything! Small cities on the way and huge metropolitan areas, the beauty of nature and the noise of Times Square, U.S. history and cultural attractions.
We saw everything we planned, even more! By the way, I advise you to buy tickets for excursions and observation decks in advance in order not to stand in queues. If you want to get to the Statue of Liberty, be sure to check the date of possible visit on the site, tickets for her buy for a long time to come.
We enjoyed this trip very much, and we hope you will enjoy it too! Have a good trip!

Road Trip Categories: Uninhabited Nature, History and Culture, Active Leisure
Day 1: Get right on the road!
When we arrived in New York, we decided to go on our way to get to the waterfalls as soon as possible. If you don't stop anywhere, it's a very hard ride in the car, so we decided to split it up for a few days. The drive will be more comfortable and you can see interesting places on the way.
Visiting: New York City, Clifton, Dickson City, Pocono Pines
Day 2: The road to the waterfall
Since we decided not to run straight to Niagara, we booked a hotel around the middle of the way. Got a lot of snacks and water in the store and went on the road. It's hard for us to sit in the car for a long time, so we decided to make small stops. We looked at the waterfall, walked in the park and even had time to rest on the beach.
Visiting: Dickson City, Ithaca, Cicero, Scranton, North Syracuse, Syracuse
Day 3: The eighth wonder of the world
Niagara Falls are an amazing sight! For once in your life, you should be here! The water flows from a huge height and turns into white, bubbling foam. We took a boat trip and came very close to the waterfall. It's a good thing they give out raincoats when they land. If it weren't for them, everyone would have been soaking wet. We also went around more than one observation deck, each with different views. Tip - After dinner, go back to the waterfalls and look at them in the evening, in the light of spotlights and colored lights.
Visiting: North Syracuse, Niagara Falls, Brighton, Cicero
Day 4: On the way to Washington, D.C.
We may not have visited the unique wonders of nature on this day, but we had enough time to enjoy the picturesque views of national parks and climb to the unusual observation deck, which once was a giant bridge.
Visiting: Niagara Falls, State College, Mount Jewett
Day 5: The capital of the United States
After the waterfalls, we went to Washington. The stopover road took all day. Of course, you can share the way, see the interesting places in Pennsylvania and spend the night at the hotel, but we really wanted to get to the capital faster.
Visiting: State College, Boalsburg, Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Washington D.C.
Day 6: Washington's sights
In Washington, D.C., we decided to explore the most popular attractions. We have seen the Capitol and the White House, as well as in one of the most popular museums in the States - the National Museum of Aeronautics and Aeronautics.
Visiting: Washington D.C.
Day 7: Let's go to New York!
The trip to New York wasn't as long as we thought. Our route ran through Baltimore and Philadelphia. In Baltimore we made a small stop to take a walk and get acquainted with the city, but in Philadelphia we decided to stay overnight.
Visiting: Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Baltimore
Day 8: Philadelphia
On our way to New York, we decided to stay overnight in Philadelphia. We were told that this is one of the most beautiful cities in Pennsylvania and we had to make sure of it personally.
Visiting: Philadelphia, Brooklyn, New York City
Day 9: The first day of the Big Apple
As planned, we got a hotel room in Manhattan. The city was given a few days to tour. We decided to start with the Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 memorial. We walked through High Line Park and entered the most famous train station, which is found in many films.
Visiting: New York City
Day 10: Manhattan
Today we decided to visit the most important places that New York City is associated with. Of course, we couldn't help but visit the American Museum of Natural History, where one of our favorite films was shot. We walked through Central Park and saw the Rockefeller Center! We decided to spend the evening in Times Square and were out late. I didn't want to go back to my room and we wandered around Manhattan at night enjoying the city until we were tired.
Visiting: New York City
Day 11: Home! (Laughs)
This trip will be remembered for a long time! We've seen so much! The raging and majestic Niagara Falls, as well as the official and stately buildings of the White House and the Capitol, plunged into the atmosphere of bustling New York City and walked through the central park. It was everything! Nature and cities, contemplation and fun! It's time to go home, but we'll definitely go back to every place we've been!
Visiting: New York City, Brooklyn
