    New York City Things to Do

    Of all the places i have visited in my 30 years on this earth, one of the things when visiting NYC that you can't miss is times square.

    San Francisco Things to Do

    There are at least two jokes in Portugal about the size of things in the USA: One says that in the USA everything is so big that even the small things are big. The other says that the streets are so large that even to cross them we have to take the car. Can you imagine why did Lombard street remind me those jokes?

    Los Angeles Things to Do

    If you don't care about artificialism... If you don't bother staying in long lines... If you have time... and money... That's a funny place to spend a couple of hours, or more. I've been in Orlando's Walt Disney's parks and couldn't avoid comparisons. The same kind of creations and amusements, but still interesting, with attractions to all ages....

    Key West Things to Do

    Get your photo taken at the southernmost point of the continental USA. We got there in the afternoon, and the sun was behind us and it was hard to take a good pic. If you want a better photo, get there in the early morning. There will be less people too.

    Toronto Things to Do

    Visited the tower after being told of the incredible view, found that the view was limited to half the glassed area due to a restaurant occupying the other half of the floor. Going outside was worse, even though you have 360 views, the are severely affected by the birdcage like enclosure. The staff were inattentive seeming to prefer talking to...

    Vancouver Things to Do

    Not far from the statue of the Girl in a wetsuit if you continue cycling or walking, you'll see this light house. There is a view plateau or bench where you can see the distance of the harbor.

    Orlando Things to Do

    We went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure for two days each the week of 8/4/14 - 8/8/14. While there were rides and shows I likes, the parking, the crowds, the lines, and Thunderstorms conspired to make it a trip to forget. All of the newest, most popular rides had wait times of at least an hour minimum, ranging up to 2 1/2 hours...

  • Chichen Itza

    Cancún Things to Do

    It´s a couple of hours by car from Cancun, but I think that it's impossible to skip its visit. Chichen-Itza it's popular worldwide, and it would be silly not to visit it, being so close. So, have swim in the early morning (great!) visit Chichen-Itza, and have another late swim to receive the night (even better)

    Seattle Things to Do

    One of the first places we wanted to see in Seattle was the "Space Needle", of course. When I think of Seattle, the Space Needle immediately comes to mind and as it has been the symbol of Seattle since opening for the 1962 World's Fair. Riding the elevator up to the top might just make you a little weak in the knees if heights bother you. But it...

The whole complex...

    Houston Things to Do

    Got my family in no charge with military ID but I would have gladly paid after what I saw inside. Seeing where the astronauts train was awsome, but not as awesome as going to the viewing area where the families used to sit inside the old mission control was the best!

  • Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall

    San Antonio Things to Do

    I'd hate to sum up an entire city by one attraction, but the San Antonio's Riverwalk is alone a reason to visit this great Texas city. It's beautiful, swank, hip, rugged, classy, all rolled into one. In addition to the breathtaking views, it's clean, safe, and there's a magnificent boat ride, sort of like a water taxi. There's shops, great...

    Miami Things to Do

    Bayside is wonderful!! My mother and I had a lovely time shopping there. There was live music (every night), a magician, and a man that let you take pictures posing with his pet macaw parrots. There are a bunch of good little places to eat, including chains like Hard Rock and Bubba Gump Shrimp! It's right along the bay, as the name implies, so...

    Richmond Things to Do

    The narrated canal cruise offers a good synopsis of Richmond's colorful history. Along the way, you'll see not just the canal but also part of the James River (the navigable part) and the old Tobacco Row. Maybe, if you're observant, you'll even get to see some local wildlife. Tours run every weekend from early April until mid-November, plus...

  • Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

    Halifax Things to Do

    It is literally impossible to go anywhere in downtown Halifax and not notice the Citadel as it is the most prominent feature in the city, set on a height which, I suppose, is why it is there in the first place as an easily defensible and militarily advantageous place. The Citadel (why it is called that I have no idea) is situated on a large hill...

    Fort Lauderdale Things to Do

    I apparently wasn't paying attention when people told me to visit Las Olas Boulevard, for some reason I thought that the section they were referring to was near the beach so we started walking...and walking...and walking.

  • Tulum Ruins

    Tulum Things to Do

    Tulum is probably best visited in the morning before all the tourist buses show up and before the scorching sun starts beating down on you since most of it is uncovered. It's hard to find official information about anything in the Yucatan but I believe it's open from 8am to 5pm and I'm sure it currently costs 59 pesos or $6USD as of December 2014....

  • Falls at Night

    Niagara Falls Things to Do

    When the night comes, hundreds of people line the border of the river, waiting for the light show. As you can imagine, powerful focus of changing colors hit the falls, revealing them in a succession of colors. It doesn't add much to the day show, and if you want to photograph you must be well equipped, or you will end like me, only catching the...

Previously, St. Augustine was defended by a wooden fort, but the burning of that fort and subsequent devastation of the town...

    In the 1920s Chicago millionaire Albert Johnson was sold the ultimate snake oil – the idea that there was gold in California’s Death Valley. In the dry, scorching conditions the ailing Johnson found something more precious: improved health. So, he built a castle in the desert valley with the second-highest temperature on record.

There is parking and one view point prior to getting to the actually Glacier view point. My family and I spent 3 nights in the park, during which we toured and hiked the...

    I grew up and left Baltimore before the Inner Harbor was really developed. I have taken trips on the Old Bay Line, but other than that I spent little time around the Baltimore harbor. But in 1980, Harborplace opened as a centerpiece of the revival of downtown Baltimore. As its name suggests, it is located on the Inner Harbor. Harborplace is...
