    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.

    Bourbon Street is the core of New Orleans' nightlife. It is a street that runs the length of the historic French Quarter, and is lined with bars, nightclubs, and souvenir shops.

  • Lombard Street

    4 out of 5 stars

    San Francisco Things to Do

    We walked from our accommodation on Sutter Street, near the city Centre, to Lombard Street, which is called “The Crookedest Street in the World”. Wow, those hills sure can be steep! Lombard Street is a part of a district interestingly called Russian Hill. The neighbourhood's name goes back to the Gold Rush era, when settlers discovered a small...

  • John Hancock Center

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Chicago Things to Do

    The voice in the lift up the 314 meters to the Hancock Center's observation deck boasted that the skyscraper was the "most recognizable building in the world". Now I think the Hancock Tower is a fantastic looking building, but if they think it is more recognizable than the Taj Mahal, the Empire State Building, or the Eiffel Tower, to name a few,...

  • Southernmost Point

    4 out of 5 stars

    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.

    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....

  • Universal Studios

    Orlando Things to Do

    I love universal studios I have a year pass, but I wish they would do a couple things diffenet like the Harry potter , not have so many people in that park at one time. You can't enjoy it. I think they should have a time for each group to come back and enjoy it. So there isn't a lot of people at once. I know that would never happen. But I wish. I...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    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. While standing here, again you'll have the beautiful architecture of Vancouver. Stanley park is really lies in a good location. If you just walked or...

  • CN Tower

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

    Boston Things to Do

    The larger major building (27000 sq ft) of the marketplace is Quincy Hall, built in the 1820's to supplement the small Faneuil Hall.

The facades are more...

    Montreal Things to Do

    I visited Canada included in a french group (a decision to practice my fading french), and they looked surprised when I said, in Quebec, that I was feeling like being in France. "Completely different" they argued. Well... reading about this classical building (in a now moved or lost site) I found: "L'hôtel de ville, bel exemple du style Second...

  • Space Needle

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

    San Diego Things to Do

    Does everyone know about the Zoo!? Yes! If you have a kid, are you probably going to the Zoo? Yea! Is it expensive - you bet! Will you find discount tickets, more than likely not. HOWEVER, we agreed that it was well worth the price paid to spend a day exploring the Zoo... especially knowing that the money goes towards maintaing the zoo, and caring...

    Playa del Carmen Things to Do

    So, I know what you may be thinking, I hit the century mark on countries and I go a little soft, perhaps a bit too trusting. However, rest assured, no unnecessary risks were taken. My sweet date and I walked down to a well-lit, crowded part of the beach in the heart of the city where several locals and tourists were gathered to simply get a...

    Pearl Harbour and especially its WWII plight is so famous that once in Honolulu there is practically no chance of skipping it.

The whole complex...

  • NASA Johnson Space Center

    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!

    This is the reason San Antonio is a tourist destination. There's plenty to do here but this is the historic site that draws people from all over the country and the world. For those who expect to see the full original fort/mission this site can be underwhelming as only a small portion of what was once hear is preserved. the Alamo started its life...

  • Downtown

    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. We finally got there, I'm not even sure how long it took, but most people will want to take the Sun Trolley or the bus to get to...

  • Bayside Market Place

    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...

  • 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...

    Yosemite National Park Things to Do

    Nothing prepares you for what you see when you get to Glacier Point in Yosemite. It is a high point way above the valley floor. From the gate, it is about a 25-30 minute drive. 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...

    We went with our young grandson and his parents. We were amazed at how much there was to do and entertain a toddler under 2 years old. It was a blast!

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...

    Death Valley National Park Things to Do

    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. Today, the...

  • 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...

  • 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....
