Each area of the United States offers its own types of pleasures and rewards to travellers. The Northeastern United States is a region well-known for being the country’s most historic and perhaps also its most famous in the international community. With cities like New York, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, this area of the United States has some of the most recognizable historic sites on the continent. The area’s history and culture also differs markedly from the history and culture of the states farther to the south, where antebellum architecture can still be seen.
Any trip to the historic Northeastern part of the United States should include a trip to the capital city, Washington, D.C. This city is of course the seat of power in the United States and possesses some of the most well-known and treasured memorials and monuments in the country. The National Mall alone provides travellers with the chance to see the Capitol, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Washington has also changed over the past couple of decades from a city known for little other than its historical sites and political activity to a vibrant, international community that has a great deal of shopping and dining options, as well as nightlife. A guided tour is an excellent way to explore Washington, D.C. as sites of historical interest become even more worth visiting when a knowledgeable guide is present.
A stop in New York City is another essential aspect of a trip through this region of the United States. New York City is truly one of the largest in the world, with five boroughs that each provide entirely different experiences to both people who live there and to travellers. Travellers who wish to explore the region rather than New York City alone will have their purpose best served by a day in Manhattan, the most famous part of New York. Sites that may be of interest to travellers in Manhattan include the Empire State Building, Central Park, Wall Street, and Times Square. Legendary neighbourhoods in Manhattan include Greenwich Village, SoHo, and Harlem.
There is no better way to end a trip to this region than a visit to Niagara Falls. The towns of Niagara Falls are in Ontario, Canada and New York State, and the natural beauty of the falls is legendary. Newmarket Holidays offers escorted holidays covering many attractions in this region.
